Abell, Thomas

Abell, Thomas

Abell or Abel, Thomas, d. 1540, English priest, chaplain to Katharine of Aragón. In 1528 he served as Katharine's secret envoy to her nephew, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, in connection with Henry VIII's proposed divorce. Abell vigorously opposed the divorce. He was imprisoned for six years in the Tower of London and was finally executed for upholding the validity of Henry's first marriage.

See J. E. Paul, Catherine of Aragon and Her Friends (1966).

This is a list of Acts of Parliament of the English Parliament during that body's existence prior to the Act of Union of 1707. For legislation passed after 1707 see List of Acts of Parliament of the United Kingdom Parliament.

The numbers after the titles of the acts are the chapter numbers. Acts before 1962 are referenced using 'Year of reign', 'Monarch', c., 'Chapter number' — e.g. 16 Charles II c. 2 — to define a chapter of the appropriate statute book. Since 1962, the regnal year has been replaced by the calendar year. All recent Acts have a short title, or citation (e.g. Local Government Act 2003, National Health Service Act 1974).

For other (non-Parliamentary) statutes of England see List of English statutes.
