1555 Poor Act

The Poor Act of 1555 was a law passed in England by Queen Mary I. It is a part of the Tudor Poor Laws.

It extended the Poor Act of 1552 and added a provision that licensed beggars must wear badges. The provision requiring badges was added to shame local community members into donating more alms to their parish for poor relief.
