|Medieval hunts were confined to royal estates or private land|
|King James I- physically unprepossessing he liked|
the presence that being in the saddle gave him.
|The royal hunt was allowed to ride over any land it desired.|
|No thought was given to the damage to crops, livestock or land|
|Farmers were expected to give the royal hunt free access to fields -|
and might have his own dogs confiscated by way of thanks.
|Charles I - son of James I - following in his father's footsteps|
