Act in favour of minors regarding the duties of the lands comprised from them

Our sovereign lord, with advice of the estates of parliament, ratifies and approves the act of parliament made in August 1621, chapter 6, in so as the same concerns minors, and declares that the true meaning thereof was, and is, that minors having right to the legal reversion should be no further obliged than during their minority of 21 years of age but only for the annualrent of the sums contained in the comprisings, and that they lose not the right of the surplus of the mails and duties of the lands so far as the same exceeds the said annualrents during their said minority.
