The company’s powers to vary its activities are in its associated ‘Regulations / Ordinances’ (under the Charter §10) which give it considerable flexibility: “and to Constitute Ordaine and make such and so many reasonable By laws Orders and Ordnances as to the said Master Wardens and Assistants or the said Comittee or the greater part of them being then and there present shall seem necessary and convenient for the well Ordering and Government of the said Company and the said By laws Ordnances or any of them to alter and Annull as they or the Maior part of them shall see requisite”.
The subscriptions levied by the company on its members are termed ‘fines’ (§10) and are in no wise regarded by the company as its being able to ‘fine’, in the disciplinary sense of to penalise, anybody.
