IU-straining the Heard by Law.
In the reign of "good Queen Bess" an
attempt was made by some of the heads of
Lincoln's inn to restrain the growth of the
legal beard. It was resolved that "no fellow
of that house should wear a beard of above
a fortnight, s growth" which no fellow
was likely to do if he consulted his own
comfort. Although, as we read in the
"Percy Anecdotes," transgressions of this
resolution were punished with fine, loss of
commons and final expulsion, such was
the vigorous resistance to the tyrannical
order that in the following year all previous
orders respecting beards were repealed.
