I just had my History mock and this question came up:

'Explain one way in which the treatment of the tolpuddle martyrs was similar to the treatment of conscious objectors'
[4 marks]

I had no idea, could someone please help me on what I could have written? Thanks

I recall that the Tolpuddle Martyrs were transported to Australia, because they took a secret oath. Conscientious objectors were those who refused military service because of their beliefs- although the law recognise them, some were not deemed as such and were imprisoned. I think the conviction for a crime is the similarity, though feel the two cases are very different.

I was answering this question too and thought possibly that the similarity is they both were convicted using Army laws. The tolpuddle martyrs were convicted using a old navy law and the consciousness objectors were convicted through conscription.

I agree! I did the think of the angle that they were both shunned from society but that gives you one sentence and even then, tolpuddle martyrs were transported whereas objectors went back home unwelcomed.

I recommend just going into detail about why they were both convicted using the army laws
