AN ACT
against Trespassing.1

1 Tenants, etc to prevent trespassing

That every Tennant, Farmer, or others, holding any Lands or Grounds within
this Isle, shall for the future be obliged, either by Herding, Fenceing, or by some
other Means, to keep their Cattle, Horses, Sheep, Goats, Swine, Geese, and all
other their Goods whatsoever, upon their own Lands and Grounds, without
suffering them to be Trespassers on their Neighbours, as is too frequently
accustomed, both to the Discouragement of good Husbandry, and the creating
of much Disquietness and Difference betwixt Neighbours:
3 Remedy in certain cases by Trespass Jury

Unless it be such Trespasses as are sometimes done and committed in standing
Corne, or reaped Corne, Meadowing or Hay mown in the Field or elsewhere;
which Trespasses are always to be viewed and estimated by four sworn Men,
and Satisfaction to be made according to the usual Course of Law.2
