Acts of Parliament and other legislation


Printed editions

The editions used in this research were the following:

Many of the Acts passed in 1710-18 relating to the 'fifty new churches' are printed in a collection published in 1721.

The two charters are both in Birch's The Historical charters and constitutional documents of the City of London.

The Order in Council cited below appears in Statutory Rules and Orders, other than those of a local, personal, or temporary character issued prior to 1890 and now in force. The version in The statutory rules & orders and statutory instruments revised to December 31, 1948. -- London: HMSO, 1949 is incorrect as it omits the parish of Coulsdon.
