The English Bill of Rights was a British Law, passed by the Parliament of Great Britain in 1689 that declared the rights and liberties of the people and settled the succession in William III and Mary II following the Glorious Revolution of 1688 when James II was deposed.
The provisions of the English Bill of Rights incorporated the Declaration of Rights and consisted of: A list of the misdeeds of King James II, 13 Articles confirming the rights of Parliament & the people and defining the limitations of the Crown.
It put in place a constitutional form of government in which the rights and liberties of the individual were protected under English law. The English Bill of Rights enhanced the democratic process by: Guaranteeing free elections and frequent meetings of Parliament, giving English people the right to complain to the king or queen in Parliament (Free Speech), forbidding excessive fines and cruel punishment and establishing representative government with laws made by a group that acts for the people.
Many of the themes and principles contained in the Magna Carta and the English Bill of Rights are continued in: American Declaration of Independence of 1776, First State Constitutions, the Articles of Confederation, the United States Bill of Rights of 1791 and the United States Constitution.
