Nonjurors 

Samuel Seabury, the first bishop of the Episcopal Church, was consecrated by nonjuring bishops of the Episcopal Church in Scotland on Nov. 14, 1784, in Aberdeen, Scotland. Seabury had been denied episcopal orders in England because he could not swear allegiance to the crown. The Scottish Episcopal Church is a nonjuring church to this day.
