HISTORY -- In an effort to check desertion the first experiments in legally sanctioned discharge certificates are mentioned in legislation of 1729. 'Masters of vessels proceeding to parts beyond the seas were then required to enter into Agreements in writing with their seamen and it was provided that a seaman should forfeit a month's pay if he left his ship before he had a "discharge in writing from the Master"....'. However, there was no requirement for masters to issue written discharges until 1795, but only for those involved in the West Indies trade.
