|Mentions||Parliament at Edinburgh prohibits Whitsuntide custom as well as Robin Hood events|
By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-05-19. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-07-28.
In Julie was a parlement held at Edenburgh, in the which manie acts and statutes were made, right profitable (as was then thought) for the common-weale of the realme. Amongest which, to passe ouer the rest, these séeme woorthie to remaine chronicled to posteritie. First, that none of the citizens (in the feasts of Whitsuntide, or anie such times, in which their hirelings are accustomed to go foorth) should assemble armed, to cast foorth the husbandmen after the old maner. Secondlie, that the inhabitants méeting together, should no more assemble vnder a certeine colour of gaine, which for exercise of the bodie (as it was supposed) was holden after the example of one (I can not tell who) Robert Hood a wild or vplandish man. Thirdlie, that there should be no priuat leagues contracted betwéene subiects. Which lawes did after bring great peace, ease, and quiet to the publike state.
I have silently omitted hyphens that occur at line endings. Marginal note against line beginning "In Juli was a parlement": "1555. A parlement"; against line beginning "ouer the rest, théese seeme worthie": "Fr. Thin. Lesleus. lib. 10. pag. 524".
The 577 edition briefly notes the parliament but gives no particulars.
Readers wishing to look up passages cited on IRHB in the original editions should be careful to note the book and chapter names etc. cited in IRHB's source references. The collations of the 1577 and 1587 editions of Holinshed are quite confusing, some sequences being paginated, some having leaf numbers, some neither. Note also that although the 1577 edition is in four volumes and that of 1587 in six, they were often bound (issued?) in two, respectively three, volumes. This is often reflected in PDFs of early editions.
