Ordinance to prevent the Embezzlement of Prizes taken by the Fleet, and concerning Payment of the Prizemoney.
Whereas both Houses of Parliament, for the better
Encouragement of Mariners employed in the Service
of the King and Parliament, over and above their
ordinary Wages, have, by an Ordinance, given
unto the said Mariners One Third Part of all such
Ships and Goods as should be by them respectively
taken and adjudged Prize; and whereas the Parliament hath received divers Complaints of the
Abuses of several Captains and their Companies,
employed, not only of their embezzling of Monies
and other Goods of Value, under Pretence of Pillage, so soon as they take any Ship; but, when they
bring in the said Prizes, find Excuses to neglect the
Service of the State, and remain in Harbours, requiring their Thirds before such Time the said Ships
and their Lading can be legally adjudged in the
Court of Admiralty, and afterwards sold by the
Commissioners and Collectors appointed for that Purpose, to the great Prejudice of the State: It is
Ordered, by the Lords and Commons assembled
in Parliament, That if any Captain, Officer, or
Mariner, hath or shall at any Time hereafter, take
or embezzle or purloin any Monies, Goods, or Lading
whatsoever, taken in any Ship as Prize, or shall
presume to break open any Trunks or Chests, or
open any Packs, unless it be to visit and search them,
and so carefully lock or make them up again, or
shall refuse to deliver up such Ships with their
entire Lading as they shall take as Prize, unto the
Collectors of Prize Goods appointed by Ordinance
of Parliament, or their Deputies, when they shall
be required thereunto, and themselves return to
their Charge, and speedily attend the Service of
the State to which they are appointed, according to
Instructions given them by the Lord High Admiral of England, that such Captain and Company shall not only lose their Shares of such Prizes,
but suffer such other Punishment as their Offences
shall demerit: And, for the Encouragement of all
Owners of Shipping, Captains, and Mariners, who
shall with Faithfulness discharge the Trust reposed
in them, and that they may have no just Cause of
Complaint, it is further Ordered, That the Collectors for Prize Goods shall, within Fifty Days
next after the Adjudication of any Prize, make
due Payment unto such Owners, Captains, and
Companies, to whom the same shall appertain, of
such Monies as shall be justly due unto them for
their Thirds; no other Customs, Charges, or Duties, for Adjudication, Collection, or otherwise, being
charged in their respective Thirds, than what the State
itself doth rateably allow."
