This chapter discusses the changes in English law of search and seizure between 1485 and 1642. By multiplying the types of search and seizure, Tudor–Stuart lawmakers multiplied the circumstances in which officials could enter English houses. Because most proprietors of those homes were unaccustomed to their routine entrance by officials, they had cause to perceive this proliferation of searches as excessive and to formulate the concept of unreasonable search and seizure.
