The plague orders that were issued by the English government between 1518 and 1666 aimed to ensure treatment of the sick and limit the spread of the disease, but government orders were only as good as their enforcement at the local level. Focussing on Cambridge, this paper examines the way in which plague orders were implemented, and infringements against them punished, as heard at the Vice Chancellor’s and Mayor’s Court in 1625.
