  Ship money - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ship money was a tax, the levy of which by Charles I of England without the consent of Parliament was one of the causes of the English Civil War.
Lord Northampton, lord-lieutenant of Warwickshire, and the earl of Banbury in Berkshire, refused to assist in collecting the money; and Charles withdrew the writs.
Hampden narrowly lost the case, and ship money continued to be levied, provoking yet more opposition, until, overtaken by events, it was repealed by the Long Parliament.

Ship Money was a form of prerogative taxation that could be levied by the king due to Royal Prerogative.
Ship Money had traditionally been collected in counties specified as maritime counties, and only in the event of the king needing to raise money to pay for raising a navy.
This was because Ship Money was levied from all maritime counties in 1634 and from 1635 - 1640 this became an annual collection from all counties in England and Wales.

 The History of the Line of Battle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
To be able to discuss a "Ship of the Line" you must first understand what the line is and what it required of its captains and their ships.
The rest of the fleet, mostly private ships hired by the British government, were to "match themselves accordingly as they can and to secure one another as cause shall require." This appears to suggest arranging a fleet in one continuous line but still leaves general maneuvering to each captain.
These ships quickly picked up the nomme de guerre of "Ship of the Line." The effective minimum size for a ship of the line was determined by its weaponry, and this minimum grew from the outset.
