This chapter shows that by 1760, Britain and her colonies had formulated ideas and procedures that inspired not only specific warrants, but other features of the Fourth Amendment. However, Britons and colonists had not restrained search and seizure in the same ways that the amendment would. Many restrictions on search and seizure before 1760 were designed to protect not the rights of persons, but the privileges of corporations and social classes.
