everything from conspiracy, escapes, explosives, forgery, insolvency,
intoxication, murder, neglect, schoolmaster, stealing, wounding unlawfully,
and plenty more.
Contained in over 600 pages, this book is arranged chronologically by date
which makes it a little hard to find without reading through. So on this CD
edition, each trial has been bookmarked alphabetically by surname making it very
easy to find. Full details of each trial are included right down to who the
solicitors for both parties were.
Fascinating reading, and a wonderful historical account if there happens to
be a connection to your family
