Buried in wool.

Whist searching through parish records, I came accross the term 'Buried in wool'.
Not knowing what this meant, done the 'google' thingy.(God bless Google).
I came across this:-


It seems this was a government act of parliament to boost the wool trade. (Cynical or what). More money in the government pot.:mad:

Passing acts of this sort, seems to ring familiar today.
