The Acts of James IIís Irish parliament of 1689

Edited by: John Bergin & Andrew Lyall

This is the first modern scholarly edition of the acts of King James IIís Irish parliament of 1689. Like all the official records of Jamesís parliament, the enrolled copies of its thirty-five acts were ordered by William IIIís Irish parliament in 1695 to be Ďopenly cancelled and utterly destroyedí. But the text of twenty-five of these acts remains extant and it is from the earliest surviving copies that this edition has been compiled. It supersedes Thomas Davisís edition which was neither comprehensive nor based on the most authentic sources. The 1689 acts dealt with the land settlement, the war, taxation, the legal system and the constitutional relationship with England, religious liberty and tithes, trade and economic development, among many other topics. The acts show a Catholic governing class legislating both for present needs and for a Jacobite settlement that was not to be.
