Court of the Archdeacon
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
The Court's original responsibilities included trial for minor criminal matters falling within the territory of the archdeacon. Appeals against Court decisions were made directly to the diocesan bishop.
Archdeaconry Courts became redundant in the eighteenth century when the minor criminal jurisdiction passed to Justices of the Peace.Last modified on 9 January 2013, at 01:14
