Articles concerning the House of Correction for the better government thereof, conceived and made the first day of May, 1617, at the General Sessions of the Peace held at Westminster, by the Justices then assembled as follows:—

1. First that for the passing away of foreign vagrants not born nor formerly dwelling in this county and thither sent in upon their apprehension, some printed passes may be had and kept in readiness to be signed by the minister and constable of Clerkenwell, certifying thereby that according to the law the said vagrants have in that parish received correction, and directed and sent to the place of their birth or last habitation as the Statutes require, such passing away of any vagrants to be first made known to the Justice or Justices who committed them or to the Committees for government of the said House, that he or they may consent thereunto and may have liberty to retain the vagrant there if it be thought fit, if the vagrant can earn his keeping by his labour.

2. Item that if any vagrants be sent thither who have formerly been there or elsewhere in the county punished for their roguish life, that the Justice or Justices who committed such vagrants be made acquainted therewith, and then the vagrant at the next Sessions following (at the farthest) shall by the warrant of the said Justices (and upon proof thereof) be sent to the Common Gaol, there to be proceeded with to his further punishment as an incorrigible rogue.

3. Item that upon the Gaol Delivery no sick or infected persons be sent or received into the said House of Correction, and if any such fortune to be, that upon notice given to the Committee at their next assembly the same be set free and sent away to the place of his birth or last habitation.

4. Item that generally no sick, diseased or impotent person, or women having children in their arms or at their backs or great with child, be sent or received into the said House, nor any other person whatsoever not having ability of body or understanding of mind to follow his work, it being fitter that such be sent rather to hospitals than to be committed thither or continued there; in which regard it is also agreed that if any fall into any of the said infirmities after their commitment they shall be released.

p.411. 5. Item for that oftentimes servants, apprentices and other unruly and disordered persons be sent thither to receive correction, for the better humbling of them to their duties rather than to make them worse or desperate in the course of their life; it is thought requisite that such persons, sent in to such purpose at the request or complaint of such as intend their reformation, be not lodged or dieted amongst the rest of the rogues (except it be specially commanded) but rather apart and by themselves, yet so as they may find themselves in a House of Correction by holding them to labour and using them hardly as the quality of their offence requires.

6. Item that provision be made by the Governor for the setting to working of children above the age of seven years (whom the law adjudges to be rogues if at that age they shall wander and beg), and so of such lame people as wanting the use of some of their limbs yet may work with the rest, especially if such vagrants be born in this county, and the Governor is, touching them of this county, to take the more care to see them reduced to goodness and maintained competently by their labour with meat, drink and lodging.

7. Item that there be certain Justices chosen at the half-year's Sessions yearly, to be number of three or four at the least, that they or any two of them do oversee the government of the said House of Correction from time to time, and to consider of and to reform any abuses or disorders that shall there grow or arise, and to see that all and every the orders, now or heretofore made for the well ordering of the said House and maintaining the people brought thither in work and with necessaries, be well and truly observed and executed, and do take order for the apparelling of such poor of the county thither committed as shall be necessary, or for disbursing such sums of money as shall be needful to be disbursed and laid out for and about the finishing and repairing of the said House of Correction or any other thing there necessary to be done.

8. Item for the better order and government of the said House and of all other things thereunto appertaining, these persons, or any two of them, whose names are under-written, shall be Committees for the due and orderly government and disposing of all things thereunto appertaining until the next General Sessions of the Peace to be held for this county of Middlesex.
