Great Britain. Parliament. The seven Acts of Parliament passed by the British Parliament in the wake of failed 1745 Scottish rebellion to ensure the destruction of the Jacobite cause. These so-called Proscription and other Acts are the principal means by which the traditional dress and language of the Highlands were banned, and the tenure by which land was held was changed from being based on military allegiance to the English system of rents. They greatly extend the grounds upon which people could be condemned for treason and either executed or sold into slavery in North America. A key collection of some very scarce and elusive statutes (the more so for being printed by the King’s Edinburgh printer) and a difficult set to assemble. The seven Acts are: 1. 19 & 20 Geo. II, c. 39. An Act for the more effectual disarming the Highlands in Scotland. 2. 20 Geo. II, c. 43. An Act for taking away and abolishing the heretable jurisdictions in that part of Great Britain called Scotland. 3. 20 & 21 Geo. II, c. 41. An Act for vesting in His Majesty the estates of certain traitors. 4. 20 & 21 Geo. II, c. 50. An Act for taking away the tenure of ward holding in Scotland, and for converting the same into blanch and feu holdings. 5. 21 Geo. II, c. 34. An Act to amend and enforce so much of an Act made in the nineteenth year of His majesty’s reign, as relates to the more effectual disarming the highlands in Scotland; and restraining the use of the highland dress. 6. 21 Geo. II, c. 19. An Act for the more effectual trial and punishment of high treason and misprision of high treason, in the highlands of Scotland. 7. 22 & 23 Geo. II, c. 48.
