Local Courts in United Kingdom

Non Royal Courts

(Source: the University of South Caroline Gould School of Law) These included the county and borough courts, such as the Court of the Mayor of London, as well as the Quarterly Sessions of the Justices of the Peace. Local gentry were given power through special commissions issued annually. General Commissions of the Peace for the whole country were established by statute in 1327. The county court consisted of a court for civil pleas whose proceedings were enrolled by the sheriff, and a court of pleas of the crown, whose proceedings were enrolled both by the sheriffs and the coroners.
