In 1687 the Fellows of Magdalen elected the Protestant, Dr Hough, to be President instead of the Catholic candidate, Antony Farmer, favoured by James II. The King had the offending officials before him, and, on their refusal to obey his unconstitutional demand, took the law into his own hands and ordered their expulsion. Later he repented his act, and on October 25th 1688, restored the Fellows, that day henceforth being observed by the college as Restoration Day.
