THE LAST CONFIRMATION OF THE CHARTERS OF LIBERTIES,
KING EDWARD THE FIRST
Granted February 14th, 1300/1301,
IN THE TWENTY-NINTH YEAR OF HIS REIGN.
EDWARD, by the Grace of God, King of England, Lord of Ireland, and Duke of Acquitaine, to all to whom the present Letters shall come. Greeting.
Know ye that we have granted and confirmed the Great Charter of the Liberties
of England, with a Charter also for the Forests, of the Lord Henry, formerly King of
England, our father, which we have renewed by our Charter; and we command, that those
Charters in all their articles shall be firmly held and observed: We also will, and
have granted for us and our heirs, that if any statute shall be contrary to the said
Charters, or to any article contained in the said Charters, the same shall be amended,
or even annulled by the common council of our realm, in testimony of which thing we
have caused these our letters to be made patent. Witness, myself, at Lincoln, the
fourteenth day of February, in the twenty-ninth year of our reign.
