The practice of touching for the king’s evil had its origin in England from Edward the Confessor, according to the testimony of William of Malmesbury, who lived about 100 years after that monarch. Mr. Giles’s translation of this portion of the Chronicle of the Kings of England is as follows: ‘But now to speak of his mireacles. A young woman had married a husband of her own age, but having no issue by the union, the humours collecting abundantly about her neck, she had contracted a sore disorder, the glands swelling in a dreadful manner. Admonished in a dream to have the part affected washed by the king, she entered the palace, and the king himself fulfilled this labour of love by rubbing the woman’s neck with his hands dipped in water. Joyous health followed his healing hand; the lurid skin opened, so that worms flowed out with the purulent matter, and the tumour subsided; but as the orifice of the ulcer was large and unsightly, he commanded her to be supported at the royal expense till she should be perfectly cured. However, before a week was expired, a fair new skin returned, and hid the ulcers so completely that nothing of the original wound could be discovered.
One of Charles II’s proclamations, dated January 9, 1683 has been given above. Evelyn in his Diary, March 28, 1684, says: ‘There was so great a concourse of people with their children to be touched for the evil, that 6 or 7 were crushed to death by pressing at the chirurgeon’s door for tickets.’ The London Gazette, October 7, 1686, contains an advertisement stating that his Majesty would heal weekly on Fridays, and commanding the attendance of the king’s physicians and surgeons at the Mews, on Thursdays in the afternoon, the examine cases and deliver tickets.
