Contents

Conventions used

It is important to recognise that this is NOT a transcript, but rather a list to assist in identifying appropriate entries.

Names

The formatting and spelling of surnames follow the original, but first names have been modernised.

Dates

The modern form of dates is given. It should be noted that entries in the original are not always individually dated, however the sequential nature of the entries allows confidence in applying dates to individual rows in the table.

Notes/Comments

These have been added wherever it is felt that further information is available which would assist in identifying suits. These notes summarise, rather than transcribe. Most additional personal and place names encountered have been added to this column, except those of counsel, which are omitted. It should be noted that repetitive wording such as in the case of orders for dismissal 'unless complt (or deft) show good reason to the contrary' & similar, have been truncated to 'unless complt/deft show...'.

Guidance on locating images

Links have now been added to allow direct reference to the original entries. Please note that odd and even numbered pages are held in different sequences, thus where a case runs across more than one page, links are provided in the table to all the pages in the correct order. Always use the links provided in the table, please DO NOT use the forward or backward arrows on the images themselves as they will take you to the next/previous image in the odd/even sequence
