    • 1759, Tobias Smollett, A Complete History of England, London: James Rivington and James Fletcher, 3rd edition,, Book 8, p. 464,[1]
      The people were divided into three parties, namely, the Williamites, the Jacobites, and the discontented revolutioners; and these factions took all opportunities to thwart, to expose, and to ridicule the measures and principles of each other: so that patriotism was laughed out of doors, as an hypocritical pretence.
