*According to this article, "Ship Money" was an imposition anciently charged upon the ports, towns, cities, boroughs and counties of the realm by ships writs under the great seal of England for providing and furnishing certain ships for the King's service. It was revived and imposed by King Charles I in 1635 and 1636, but afterward declared to be contrary to law, and considered one of the causes of the deposition of the King and establishment of the Commonwealth. See also Alexander and William COMBE of Badbury, Kingsbridge Hundred.
