PREFACE TO THIS VOLUME. 



r J~ , HE Sixth Volume of The Statutes of the Realm contains the Statutes from the 
Commencement of the Reign of King James the Second, A. D. 1685, to the End of 
the 6th and 7th Years of the Reign of King William and Queen Mary, A. D. 1694. 

This Volume has been printed, and the Chronological Table and Index have been framed, 
in Strict conformity with the Principles referred to in the Preface to the Fifth Volume ; and 
it is therefore unnecessary to repeat them here: it may however be proper to mention, 
that although Queen Mary appears to have died between the passing of the Statutes 
Chapter II. and Chapter III. of the 6th and 7th Years of the Reign of King William and 
Queen Mary, yet the Heading is continued throughout those Years “ 6 & 7 Gul. & Mar.,” 
as the Record affords no Authority for breaking the Year : Indeed it seems probable, had the 
Attention of the Legislature at that time been called to the Subject, that the Statute which 
now stands as Chapter III. 6 & 7 William and Mary, would have followed a corresponding 
Heading upon a new Parliament Roll as Chapter I. 1 William III. ; as it is obvious that 
no Year or Chapter from the last Act of the Reign of William and Mary could have been 
correctly designated as a continuing Year or Chapter of the Reign of William the Third. 

Three Engravings, the First, of the Act for removing and preventing Questions and 
Disputes concerning the assembling and sitting of the then present Parliament, 1 William 
and Mary ; the Second, of the Act for establishing the Coronation Oath, 1 William and 
Maiy ; and the Third, of the Act for recognizing King William and Queen Mary, and for 
avoiding all Questions touching the Acts made in the Parliament assertibled at Westminster 
the 13th Feb. 1688, 2 William and Mary, are inserted respectively at Pages 23, 56, and 156 
of this Volume.

CHAPTER XVm. 

An Act to encourage the Building of Shipps in England. 

W HEREAS for some yeares past and more especially since the laying a Duty upon Coals brought into the 
River of Thames there hath beene observed a more than ordinary Decay in Building Shipps in England 
and particularly in New Castle Hull Yarmouth Ipswich Alborough Dunwich Walderswick Woodbridge and Harwich 
where many stout Shipps were yearely built for the Coale and other Trade which were of great use to his 
Majestie in time of Warr and a Nursery for able Seamen but by the Discouragement that Trade hath ever since 
laine under occasioned chiefely by the freedome which foreigne Shipps and Vessells bought and brought into 
this Kingdome have enjoyed in the Coale and other Inland-Trade equall to that of English built Shipps the 
Merchants Owners and others have not beene able to build as formerly which hath caused many of our English 
Shipwrights Calkers and Seamen to seeke their Imployments abroad whereby the Building-trade is not onely wholly 
lost in severall of the aforementioned places and in others very much decayed but alsoe the Importation of 
Timber Plank Hemp Pitch Tarr Iron Masts Canvas and other Commodities used in building and fitting out Shipps 
are greatly lessened to the apparent pjudice of his Majestyes Customs the losse of a considerable Imployment 
for Shipping and consequently of all other Trades depending thereupon to the too great Advantage of Forreigne 
Nations. 

Bee it therefore enaefted by the Kings most Excellent Majestie by and with the advice and consent of the 
Lords Spirituall and Temporall and the Commons in this present Parlyament assembled and by the Authoritie of the
