The Commissary-General,

Passed 6th
June 1719.
An ACT for the Encouragement of an Iron Manufacture, within
    this Province.  Lib. LL. Nº 4. fol. 445.

Writ of ad
quod Damnum
may be taken
out for uncultivated
Lands, to set 
up a Forging-Mill,
WHEREAS it is represented to this present General Assembly, That
there are very great Conveniences of carrying on Iron-Works
within this Province, which have not hitherto been embraced for
want of proper Encouragements to some first Undertakers, altho' the Consequences
thereof might not only be considerably advantageous to the persons
immediately concerned therewith, but also to the Public Trade of Great-Britain,
and this province; and for that it may so happen that the Lands or
Places most proper for the fixing Forge-Mills, and other Conveniencies for
the carrying on such considerable Works, may happen to be within the Bounds
of any lands already reserved to his Lordship's Use, or such Lands as are in
the Hands or Possession of Persons under Age, or unable to be at the Charge
of carrying on such considerable Works, or else such as are wilfully obstinate,
to the Hinderance of such Persons as would purchase such Lands or Places as
should be fit for the carrying on so great Works, and setting them up, to the
Increase of our Trade and Navigation, the Peopling of this Province, and to
the Advantage of his Lordship, by the Encouraging the Taking-up of such remote
and barren Lands as are now entirely useless and uncultivated;

    II.  Be it Enacted, by the Right Honourable the Lord Proprietary, by and with
the Advice and Consent of his said Lordship's Governor, and the Upper and Lower
Houses of this present General Assembly, and the Authority of the same,
That if
any Person or Persons from and after the Publication hereof, shall desire to
set up such Forging-Mill, and other Conveniencies for the carrying on such
Iron-Works, upon any Land not before cultivated, next adjoining to any Run
of Water within this Province, not being the Estate of Inheritance of such
