VIIIConfirming certain Acts of Jurisdiction.

And be it enacted, That where under the Provisions of the first-recited Act any Parish or Place shall have been brought within any Diocese to which it did not belong before the passing of the first-recited Act, and any Act of Jurisdiction or Authority shall have been exercised as to such Parish or Place since the passing of the first-recited Act, and before the First Day of November in this Year, by the Bishop or any Officer of the Bishop of the Diocese or any Archdeacon of the Diocese to which such Parish or Place belonged, either before or since the passing of the first-recited Act, which does not conflict with any similar Act of Jurisdiction or Authority previously and since the passing of the first-recited Act exercised as to such Parish or Place by any other Bishop or Officer of any other Bishop or Archdeacon having or claiming to have Jurisdiction as to such Parish or Place, the same shall be deemed as good and valid as if such Parish or Place had then been wholly and undoubtedly within the Diocese and Jurisdiction of the Bishop by whom, or by any Officer of whom, such Act of Jurisdiction or Authority shall have been exercised.
