North Cheshire Family Historian

Lists of Solicitors and Deputies at Chester Exchequer Court 1758 to 1823

Extracted from CHES 14/81 held at the Public Record Office and reproduced with permission.

The above piece number is part of the CHES series of documents held at the Public Record Office, Kew. The piece contains the records of the Exchequer Court of Chester Entry Books & Minute Books of Decrees & Orders from 1562 to 1830. Unfortunately only a small minority of the books contains an index and consequently searching through the books for a given name is an extremely time-consuming task. The 81 books each contain an average of 350 pages of secretarial script and give brief details of the complainants' and defendant's names and the nature of the case or cause. Locations are sometimes included especially if the case is a land-related dispute.

The Rule Book for the period 24 July 1760 to 2 April 1829 contains several lists of Solicitors and Deputies appointed to practise at the Exchequer Court. These are shown below and are as transcribed from the book but placed in date order. Several names have 'dead' written against them without a date. This is denoted by an * against the entry. Those shown in light type are listed on a previous folio.
