The Fourth Amendment

William J. Cuddihy

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that between 1761 and 1776, Britons and Americans discussed not only specific and general warrants but also the circumstances in which warrants should be issued, if privacy could be expected aboard ships as well as within houses, and the latitude of search that arrest warrants permitted. Although these topics had been considered before, they attracted greater attention in the decade and a half before the American Revolution. The twilight of the colonial period did not produce agreement on those topics, but it did generate a larger palette of ideas concerning them.
