Scope and content
The declarations and oaths given by officers of the Corporation (mayors, alderman etc.), recording their name, position they were entering and the date.
These oaths were taken and recorded due to the Sacramental Test Act in 1828, a copy of which is at the start of KL/TC 15/1. It allows an oath to be taken instead of receiving communion. It still requires the person taking the oath to declare upon the 'True Christian Faith' and not to weaken the Protestant Church.
This was replaced in 1868 by the Promissory Oaths Act, and subsequent acts. This oath simply required the person to swear allegiance to Queen Victoria and her successors according to the law.
