The Gates of all walled Towns
were to be shut from Sun-set
to Sun-rise. A watch was ap=
=pointed, who were to arrest all
Strangers. Thus a Passenger would
be apprehended, and detained all
night, and if a suspected person,
delivered over to the Shreiff, and
upon an escape, the party was to
be pursued with hue and cry. ---
Highways through every Lordships
were to be kept clear, for the space
of 200 feet, from hedge to hedge;
and no bushes, woods, or dykes, in
which Felons could lie concealed,
suffered.
