Freedom of the City is an ancient honour granted to martial organisations, allowing them the privilege to march into the city "with drums beating, colours flying, and bayonets fixed". This honour dates back to ancient Rome which regarded the "pomerium", the boundary of the city, as sacred. Promagistrates and generals were forbidden from entering it, and resigned their imperium immediately upon. The Liberties (Irish: Na Saoirsí or occasionally Na Libirtí) is an area in central Dublin, Ireland, located in the southwest of the inner of Dublin's most historic working-class neighbourhoods, the area is traditionally associated with the River Poddle, market traders and local family-owned businesses, as well as the Guinness brewery and whiskey distilling, and, historically, the Country: Ireland.

The origins of the Freemen (or free Burgesses as they were originally known) of the Borough of Great Grimsby is lost in antiquity but probably goes back to the 11th century. The rights and privileges of the freemen were gradually acquired during the successive centuries that followed.

Being a freeman carried with it the right to vote, and only freemen could vote in Plymouth by The City of London is keen to maintain the Freedom as a living tradition.

The Freedom is open to all who are genuinely interested and invited or born to it. The City Freemen are a very broad cross-section of the population. The Freedom in the City today is still closely associated with membership of the City.

Many other people chose to become Free of the City because of the privileges it carried with it, or for reasons of their own.I recently learned that three clauses of the Magna Carta are still part of UK law — the liberties of the English Church, the privileges of the City of London, and the right to trial by jury.

I think everyone understands the right to trial by jury, and I guess the clause about church liberties is there to prevent the monarch from meddling too much with church affairs.
