1. Pardon Francis Bacon

As main organizer of this petition, I would like to add a brief note. The approach to this petition has been long and tedious; over two years striving continuously to seek for a higher lever of accountability and consistency of websites to host this project.

This petition in the past was once approved to be hosted by 10 Downing Street; however, it only gained 14 signatures over the duration of two years, therefore, a global watch was needed this time, and I personally would like to thank the staff here for hosting this petition once again.

Your support is important, even if you had re-signed in the past, or are not so much involved in Francis Bacon. Please view, acknowledge, and sign this cause.

At the time of its submission, we shall submit it to the Organization that will assist in the cause to re-issue or consider a posthumous pardon to Francis Bacon.

If you have any questions as to why Bacon should be granted a pardon, or hold doubts as to which Organization this petition will be submitted to, you are very welcome to send your inquiries to me by sending me a message here.

Thank you.
Elaine M. Dutton


Please help us restore Francis Bacon’s name and sign this online pardon. Francis Bacon should be recognized and pardoned by the current British government, which will be a just act, well behind schedule.

2. Restoration of King James I’s Pardon to Sir Francis Bacon

Restore the full pardon to Sir Francis Bacon, Viscount St. Alban that was prepared by King James I., but never signed.

Our petition, a continuance to Sir Francis Bacon’s petition to King James I., written in 1624, three years after Bacon’s impeachment as Chancellor for alleged bribes, a vindication of this injustice needs a fresh review by the United Nations, the British Government, her Majesty The Queen, his Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.

Sir Francis Bacon’s petition left his hands to petition King James I’s mercy and move his Majesty’s royal heart to take compassion and to grant his desire:

“I prostrate myself at your Majesty’s feet; I, your ancient servant, now sixty-four years old in age, and three years five months old in misery. I desire not from your Majesty means, nor place, nor employment, but only, after so long a time of expiation, a complete and total remission of the sentence of the Upper House, to the end that blot of ignominy may be removed from me, and from my memory with posterity; that I die not a condemned man, but may be to your Majesty, as I am to God, nova creatura.”
