From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Civil List Act 1697 is an Act of the Parliament of England (9 Will III c. 23).[1] This was the first Act of Parliament to set the Civil List, although the custom had begun in 1689.[2] The annual amount assigned to King William and his household was £700,000, an amount that did not change until the beginning of the reign of George III in 1760.[3]
