Notes

"The offspring of Englishmen born abroad, even though of English descent, were not citizens and had to undergo naturalization if they intended to acquire realty and transmit it to their heirs....Children of aliens born in the colonies were still aliens. That situation changed in 1700 during the reign of William III, when legislation allowed natural-born subjects the right to inherit from alien parents or more remote ancestors. Accordingly, there was no longer a distinction between an Englishman and a colonial in the matter of inheritance." -- P. ix.

Denizations were granted by the king and naturalizations were granted by Parliment.
