By the King.
A Proclamation for the authorizing of an
 uniformity of the book of Common Prayer,
to be ufed throughout the Realm.



 Given at Our Palace of Wefminfter,  the 5.  day of  March, in the
      firft yeer of Our reign  of England , France, and Irelandand of                                      Scotland the seven-and-thirtieth.  [1604.]

      


                                                   

In 1604, following the death of Elizabeth and the succession of James I, changes were made to the Prayer Book primarily to placate the persisent Puritans and their demands... torments to Stuart monarchs which would continue into the New World.


His version respected Elizabeth I and removed very little if anything published in her 1559 prayer book; a good thing, since James required the parishoners and subjects within his "Realm" the exclusive use of his prayer book.


It is a certainty that the settlers who landed at Cape Henry in April 1607 carried this prayer book, and Rev. Hunt adhered to its daily lessons and prayers. In fact, the King's addition of many (and far more specific) "Kalendar" (Almanac) elements should make decoding some of what Rev. Hunt said on the shore that day more  reliable.
