Great Discord (12)

The Act of Union 1536 continues from (12)...

"...whereby great discord variance debate division murmur and sedition hath grown between his said subjects; His Highness therefore of a singular zeal love and favour that he beareth towards his subjects of his said dominion of Wales, minding and intending to reduce them to the perfect order notice and knowledge of his laws of this his realm, and utterly to extirp all and singular the sinister usages and customs differing from the same, and to bring the said subjects of this his realm and of his said dominion of Wales to an amicable concord and unity hath..."

"Amicable concord and unity" was the stated goal of this section.  This was to be done by removing the "sinister usages" and "customs" that were different from the existing order on the eastern side of the Marches.
