About

As a Freeman, I live under a Common Law (commonsense) and natural law jurisdiction only.

1) Do not breach the peace.
2) Do not cause no-one harm.
3) Do not cause no-one loss.
4) Do not use fraud in promises or agreements.

Common law can be described as natural law, the only true law. I do NOT consent to be governed by Act's of Parliament or Statutes.

A statute can be defined as, An act of the legislature as an organized body. Washington v Dowling, 92 Fla 601, 109 So 588.

An act, A thing done or established; a deed or other written instrument evidencing a contract or an obligation. A statute; a bill which has been enacted by the legislature into a law, as distinguished from a bill which is in the form of a law presented to the legislature for enactment. Anne 5 ALR 1422. (Ballantines, 3rd edition, Page 16-17)

legislature. Broadly, any body having legislative power. 49 Am J1st States § 28. (Ballantines, 3rd edition, Page 724)

state. A body politic or society of men united together for the purpose of promoting their mutual safety and advantage by their combined strength, occupying a definite territory, and politically organized under one government. McLaughlin v Poucher, 127 Conn 441, 17 A2d 767.....................a political community of free citizens, occupying a territory of defined boundaries, and organized under a government sanction and limited by a written constitution, and established by the consent of the governed. Coyle v Smith, 221 US 559, 55 L Ed 853, 31 S Ct 688. (Ballantines, 3rd edition, Page 1210)

So, we have (Statute) An act of legislature as an organised body (the state, the Government) who are established by the consent of the governed.

Therefore, we can conclude, a statute is "A legislative rule of society given the force of law by the consent of the governed."

Use of expression “freeman” in Magna Carta Act 1297, cc. 1 & 29

1. Most of the literature refers to the 1215 Magna Carta, rather than the slightly modified statutory version of 1297. McKechnie, for example, discusses the nuances that the term freeman, or liber homo, would have held in 1215. He explains that no villein could ever have been described as a liber homo: although the word homo was mildly ambiguous (having the meaning man or baron), villeins would not have been described as free. Magna Carta, he argues, “never spoke of ‘freemen’ when it meant to include the ordinary peasantry or villagers” (who were usually described as probi homines).

2. He notes that in c. 15 of Magna Carta, freemen are assumed to be feudal tenants of a mesne lord, and therefore freeholders. In c.20, freemen are contrasted with villeins. In c.39 of the 1217 reissue, freeman is apparently used to mean freeholder. McKechnie thus concludes that the word freeman as used in the Charter is synonymous with “freeholder”; and therefore only a limited class could, as grantees or the heirs of such, make good a legal claim to share in the liberties secured by it.

3. Similarly, Holdsworth argues that villeins were not considered to be freemen in 1215. Any protection they were offered by Magna Carta was as property of their lords, rather than as holders of rights themselves.

4. Holt offers a slightly more nuanced view. He argues that Magna Carta used the term freeman in “a characteristic and unique manner”: that is, the sense of the word varied between provisions. Thus, in c.15, freemen are under-tenants, but in c.34, they hold their own manorial courts. Furthermore, Holt interprets c.27 and c.39 as applying the term freeman to “all social grades”. But this approach does not necessarily apply to cc.1 and 29.
