You could only have one dog if you could feed it. You could not kiss your mother or father on Sundays. A poor mans clothes could not be good. On the lords day people could not laugh, play or even make their bed. People had to shoot three crows or twelve blackbirds between the middle of March and the last day of June. Now these are some of the punishments, stocks in which you would they would put your hands,head or legs in a wooden stocks . Ducking stool in which you would get drowned by a long stick. Whipping post they tie you to a post and whip you.
