Ordinance for Defence of London.

"The Lords and Commons in Parliament assembled, taking into their serious Consideration, that, according to divers Ordinances of both Houses, the Committee for the Militia of London, and divers other well-affected Persons, by Approbation of the said Committee, have raised great Forces of Horse and Foot; have made Courts of Guard, Forts, and Lines of Communication from One Fort to another, as well within the said City and Liberties as without, in the Counties of Midd. and Surrey; have caused those Forces to be listed, arrayed, weaponed, trained, and exercised, and divers of those Courts of Guard and Forts to be manned, and furnished with Ordnance, and have appointed Colonels, Captains, and other Officers, over them; that the said Committee and well-affected Persons are raising more Forces of Horse and Foot, and providing more Arms, and other Necessaries; that the said Forces, Courts of Guards, and Forts, have been, and are intended to be, constantly employed for the Safeguard of this present Parliament, and of the said City and Parts adjacent, wherein our Religion, Laws, Liberties, and Public Safety, do so much depend; that the Charge of raising and maintaining the said Forces, Courts of Guard, and Forts, hath been, and is like to be, very great, and hitherto born chiefly by the said City, and well-affected Citizens thereof; that (fn. *) it is necessary to continue this Charge, till our Religion, Laws, and Liberties, be by other Means secured; that it is most just that all Persons inhabiting within the said Forts and Lines of Communication, and Parishes adjacent, being in the more Safety thereby, should therefore contribute to the said Charge, and put their Shoulders to the Burthen, which will make it be much the more easily undergone; that it will eminently tend to the Safety of all the said Inhabitants, if all the said Forces, raised, and to be raised, within the Commands of the said Forts and Lines of Communication, and Parishes adjacent, be subordinate to the Commands of the Committee of the Militia of London, next under both Houses of Parliament; that, for the better carrying on the Work, it is necessary some Persons be added to the said Committee; that the Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Council of the said City have petitioned to that Purpose: Hereupon the Lords and Commons in Parliament assembled do Ordain and Declare, and be it Ordained and Declared, That the said Committee for the Militia of London shall have full Power and Authority to cause all and singular His Majesty's Subjects inhabiting within Command of the said Forts or Lines of Communication, and Parishes adjacent, mentioned in the Weekly Bill of Mortality, that are meet and fit for the Wars, from Time to Time to be assembled and called together, and to be listed, well and sufficiently arrayed, weaponed, trained, exercised, and put in Readiness, in Places most fit for that Purpose, excepting such as are Peers or Members of the House of Commons, or Assistants, or Attendants to the House of Peers, and all their menial Servants, and the Students of the several Inns of Court and Chancery; and for the better Execution of this Ordinance, to make as well One or more Sub-Committees, consisting of so many Persons as they shall think fit; as also Colonels, and Captains, and other Officers, and to remove them out of their Places, and to make others from Time to Time, as they shall think fit for that Purpose; and to lead, conduct, and employ, the said Forces, arrayed and weaponed, as well for the disarming of all such, within the Command of the said Forts and Lines of Communication, as shall refuse to give Obedience to this Ordinance, and for the Safe-guarding of the said Forts and Lines of Communication, as also for the suppressing of all rebellious Insurrections and Invasions that may happen within the same, and of all Forces raised without the Authority of Parliament, and to give Battle and fight with them, and their Adherents, and all others that shall approach with any such Force towards or against the Parliament, or Cities of London or Westm', and Places adjacent, or shall cause any Insurrection within Command of the said Forts or Lines of Communication; and them to invade, resist, repress, subdue, pursue, kill, and slay, and by all Means to destroy, as Enemies of the Kingdom, and to perform all Things else needful for the Preservation of the Parliament and Cities aforesaid, either by Water or Land, observing from Time to Time such other Directions or Commands as they shall receive from both Houses of Parliament: And it is further Ordained and Declared, by the said Lords and Commons, That all Persons inhabiting within Command of the said Forts or Lines of Communication, and Parishes adjacent, mentioned in the Weekly Bill of Mortality, except the Persons before excepted, shall contribute towards the said Charge, in such a reasonable Proportion as shall be thought fit by both Houses of Parliament; and that all the Forces raised, and to be raised, within the said Forts and Lines of Communication, and Parishes adjacent, mentioned in the Weekly Bill of Mortality, except the Persons before excepted, shall be ordered and disposed of, from Time to Time, by the said Committee for the Militia of London; any former Order, Ordinance, or Declaration, or other Matter, to the contrary hereof, in any Wise notwithstanding; and that Isaack Pennington (now Lord Mayor), John Kendrick Alderman, Richard Turner Senior, William Hobson, Theophilus Reyley, Richard Bateman, Edward Cooke, Richard Turner Junior, Robert Titchborne, Tempest Milner, Wm. Antrobus, Thomas Player Senior, and Samuell Hasnett, Citizens of London, shall be added to the said Committee.

"And it is further Ordained and Declared, That as the good Endeavours of the said Committee for the Militia, and of other well-affected Persons aforesaid, are and shall be taken as real Testimonies of their good Intentions for the common Good and Safety, and the Execution thereof a good and acceptable Service to the Commonwealth, so the said Persons shall be, by Power of Parliament, saved harmless, both for what according to the true Meaning of the Premises they have done, and what they, or any others, shall do in the Execution of this Ordinance for Time to come."
