And whereas it is necessary to make orders touching the amount of the reasonable fees and charges to be taken by the several persons appointed to carry the powers of the said act into execution; and it will be convenient that all the orders and regulations made by the Court under the said act should be contained in the same rale:—

Now it is hereby ordered, that the said General Rules be, and the same are hereby revoked: Provided that this present rule shall not be construed in any respect to invalidate any proceedings which before the first day of March next ensuing shall have been taken, pursuant to the direction of the said rules of Michaelmas Term last.

And it is hereby further ordered, that where any acknowledgment shall be made by any married woman of any deed under and by virtue of the said act, before commissioners appointed under the said act, one at least of the said commissioners shall be a person who is not in any manner interested in the transaction giving occasion for such acknowledgment, or concerned therein, as attorney, solicitor, or agent, or as clerk to any attorney, solicitor, or agent, so interested or concerned.

And it is further ordered, that, before the commissioners shall receive such acknowledgment, they, or in case one of them shall be interested or concerned as aforesaid, then such one of them as shall not be so interested or concerned, do inquire of every married woman separately, and apart from her husband, and from the attorney or solicitor concerned in the transaction, whether she intends to give up her interest in the estate to be passed by such deed, without having any provision made for her in lieu of, or in return for, or in consequence of her so giving up such interest; and where such married woman, in answer to such inquiry, shall declare that she intends to give up such her interest without any provision, and the said commissioners shall have no reason to doubt the truth of such declaration, and shall verily believe the same to be true, then they shall proceed to receive the said acknowledgment; but, if it shall appear to them, or to such one of them as aforesaid, that it is intended that provision is to be made for any such married woman, then the commissioners shall not take her acknowledgment until they are satisfied that such provision has been actually made, by some deed or writing produced to them, or if such provision shall not have been actually made before, then the commissioners shall require the terms of such intended provision to be shortly reduced into writing, and shall verify the same by their signatures in the margin, at the foot, or at the back thereof.

And it is hereby further ordered, that the affidavit verifying the certificate to be made pursuant to the said act, and which certificate shall be in the form contained in the said act, shall [except in such cases where the acknowledgment shall be taken elsewhere than in England, Wales, or Berwick-upon-Tweed,] be made by some practising attorney or solicitor of one of the Courts at Westminster, or of one of the counties palatine of Lancaster or Durham, and that in all cases it shall be deposed, in addition to the verification of the said certificate, that the deponent, for if more than one person join in the affidavit], that one or more of the deponents knew the person or persons making such acknowledgment: and that, at the time of making such acknowledgment, the person or persons making the same was or were of full age and competent understanding: and that one at least of the commissioners taking such acknowledgment, to the best of his deponent's knowledge or belief, is not in any manner interested in the transaction giving occasion for the taking of such acknowledgment, or concerned therein, as attorney, solicitor, or agent, or as cleric to any attorney, solicitor, or agent, so interested or concerned; and that the names and residences of the said commissioners, and also the place or places where such acknowledgment or acknowledgments shall be taken, shall be set forth in such affidavit: And that previously to such acknowledgment being taken, the deponent had inquired of such married woman, [or, if more than one, of each of such married women,] whether she intended to give up her interest in the estate to l,e passed; and also the answer given thereto; and where any such married woman, in answer to such inquiry, shall declare that she intends to give up her interest without any provision, the depom nt shall state that he has no reason to doubt the truth of such declaration, and he verily believes the same to be true. And where any provision has been agreed to be made, the deponent shall state that the same has been made by deed or writing, or, if not actually made before, that the terms of the intended provision have been reduced into writing, which deed or writing he verily believes has been produced to the said Judge, [Waster, or Commissioners.]

And it is hereby further ordered, that the affidavit shall state the parish or several parishes, or place or several places, and the county or counties in which the several premises wherein any such married woman shall appear to be interested, shall by deed be described to be situate.

And it is hereby further ordered, that the affidavit shall be in the form hereunto annexed, subject to such variations as the circumstances of the case shall render, necessary, or such affidavit may be made, where it is found convenient, by one of the said commissioners, with such variation in the form thereof as shall be necessary in that behalf.

And it is hereby further ordered, that the certificates and affidavits verifying the same shall, within one month from the making the acknowledgment, be delivered to the proper officer appointed under the said act; and that the officer shall not after that time receive the same without the direction of the Court or a Judge.

And it is hereby further ordered, that the fees or charges to be paid for the copies to be delivered by the clerks of the peace, or their deputies, or by the officer of the said Court, and for taking acknowledgments of deeds, and for examining married women, and for the proceedings, matters, and things required by the said act to be had, done, and executed, for completing and giving effect to such acknowledgments and examinations, shall be as follows:—
