Barry says "one day our names will be as famous as the Tolpuddle Martyrs." The Tolpuddle Martyrs were a group of 19th century Dorset agricultural labourers who were arrested for and convicted of swearing a secret oath as members of the Friendly Society of Agricultural Labourers. The rules of the society show it was clearly structured as a friendly society and operated as a trade-specific benefit society. But at the time, friendly societies had strong elements of what are now considered to be the predominant role of trade unions. They suffered transportation to Australia. Unlike many Scottish chartists, whose names are not celebrated, many of the Tolpuddlers gained a pardon and were able to return to the UK. See more
