Footnotes

1 The above statement of the Appropriation clauses of the Act is substantially but not formally correct. The Act 2-3 Anne c. 3 provides for the sale of Annuities to a value not exceeding two capital sums viz. of 900,000l. and 300,000l. : "for carrying on the present war and other her Majesty's occasions" and 118,867l. 18s. 6d. for the service of these annuities ("for meeting the quarterly payments" thereon) up to 25 December 1705. The total of these three sums is 1,218,867l. 18s. 6d. The Act itself contains no appropriation clause referring specifically to this total sum. The appropriation is only implied in the purpose of the Act as expressed above by way of preamble. The sole appropriation clause proper contained in the Act is clause 33 which appropriates the weekly 3700l. of Excise money to the repayment of such loans as might eventually be required to make up the intended total of 1,218,867l. 18s. 6d.
2 The above marginal note and correction was doubtless made by the Auditor. The Act of 9 Wm. III, c. 13, imposed a Duty on Coals and Culme imported into any part of the Kingdom for five years from 15 May, 1698 to 15 May, 1703 as a Supply to his Majesty. A year later by the Act 10 Wm. III, c. 10. a similar Duty was charged upon Cinders for 4 years to end at the same date viz. 15 May, 1703.
In the renewal or "Continuing Act of 1 Anne, Stat. 2, c. 4, for continuing them from 14 May 1703 to 15 May, 1708 the three Duties are run together and the purpose of the grant is defined as "Supply for the War and to defray other your Majesty's necessary occasions."
Up to the year 1703 the Accounts for those Duties run through the Revenue Return as (1) Account for Coals and Culme (2) Account for Cinders. From May 1703 onwards the three Duties are comprised under one head.
Quite apart from the above tax which was granted for national purposes and produced a fairly large revenue, there was a contemporary Duty on Coals granted for the rebuilding of St. Paul's Cathedral. The accounts for this Duty are not specified in the Revenue Return. They may have been included in the total corpus for the Grand Receipt of the Customs of London port. This tax which produced only a small yield and is comparatively unimportant, goes back to the time of James II and there is just a possibility that the error in the above Declared Account at this point is due to confusion between the national Coal tax of Wm. III's reign and the local London Church Coal tax of James II's reign.
The life history of this latter tax is as follows :—The Act of 1 James II, c. 15, for completing St Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey granted a Duty on Coals imported into the Thames between 29 September, 1687 and 29 September, 1700.
By a later Act 8-9 Wm. III, c. 14, for the same purpose a Duty on Coals and Culme was granted for 16 years from 29 September, 1700 to 29 September, 1716.
By the Act of 9 Anne, c. 17. this particular Duty on Coals only was prolonged to 28 September, 1724 for the purpose of building 50 new Churches in London and Westminster. The above 3 Acts therefore represent a comparatively small Duty area viz, London port imports and a merely local purpose.
