Arrangement CLASSIFICATION OF QUARTER SESSIONS RECORDS
The judicial archives of Quarter Sessions continue to the present day, but as most administrative functions were transferred to the County Council in 1889, that date (at which many classes actually end) has been chosen for the termination of Quarter Sessions archives in the present catalogue. Later terminal dates are given where a volume or bundle begins before 1889 but ends after that year. For other county records the actual first and last dates of all classes in the custody of the County Council have been shown; this does not imply that the later records are open to historical study.

Administrative history:
THE JUSTICES OF THE PEACE
No attempt is made here to describe in detail the history of the justices of the peace. A good account of this is found in the Introduction to Vol. V of Surrey Records (published by Surrey County Council, 1931).
Before the creation of County Councils by the Local Government Act of 1888, local administration was largely in the hands of the justices of the peace or under their supervision. Originally commissioned in the Middle Ages as 'keepers of the King's peace' in the counties, the justices had been given certain administrative functions, in addition to their purely judicial work, as early as the 14th Century. The Tudor sovereigns, with an eye to economy as well as practical convenience, employed the unpaid county justice increasingly in carrying out their system of government and enforcing their numerous statutes, so much so that he has been called 'the Tudor maid-of-all-work'. In particular, justices of the peace were charged with the superintendence of the parish officers established by 16th Century legislation, the overseers of the poor and the surveyors of the highways, while they were commonly called upon to appoint and supervise that ancient manorial officer, the petty constable or tithingman. During the 18th and 19th Centuries, new statutes were continually adding to the justices' duties, though the reforms in poor law and highway administration in 1834 and 1862 transferred some of their burdens to new bodies, the Guardians of the Poor and the Highway Boards, and in 1877 the State relieved them of responsibility for prisons. Since 1888 little work of an administrative character remains to them except for licensing and the joint control of police with the County Council.
Their judicial work, the hearing and judgment of local felonies and trespasses, has continued without substantial modification to the present day. After about 1600 they usually referred capital offences to the assizes, but on the other hand the gradual decay of manorial courts leet in the 17th Century meant that eventually all minor crimes and misdemeanours had to come before justices of the peace. The justices used their powers individually (so far as they were allowed), or jointly with one or more colleagues in local meetings later called Petty Sessions. There were also, as time went on, special sessions for the licensing of alehouses and other purposes. Their most important functions, however, were exercised, as they still are, at the General Sessions of the Peace, held four times a year (at Epiphany, Easter, Trinity and Michaelmas), since about 1350 or earlier. At these meetings, known as Quarter Sessions, those justices who attended--never more than a minority (The average quarterly attendance between 1661 and 1668 was about 16 members of the Bench, and between 1775 and 1800 roughly the same.)--sat as a court to hear and determine cases, both criminal and civil, which were outside the scope of a single justice's authority. Procedure resembled that of the assizes. (The procedure is fully described in Minutes of Proceedings in Quarter Sessions, Parts of Kesteven [Lincs.], 1674-95, ed. S. A. Peyton (Lincoln Record Society, Vols. 25, 26), 1931.) The High Sheriff was responsible for summoning a grand jury (which decided whether the initial evidence justified a trial), and also for summoning qualified persons to provide the petty juries for trying issues of fact in criminal cases. All the authority of the justices was of a judicial nature, and much business which we should now regard as purely administrative had to be handled by judicial procedure, e.g., a highway in disrepair was 'presented' as such in court, and a fine imposed on the inhabitants of the parish responsible, to enable repairs to be carried out.
In some counties Quarter Sessions were held regularly at one town which was conveniently central. In others it became the custom to hold the Sessions at several different towns in turn. Gloucestershire records of 1595-1601 show the meetings being held generally at Gloucester but once at Cirencester. Between 1664 and 1675 they were held sometimes at Gloucester, sometimes at Cirencester, and sometimes at Tetbury. From 1676 the meeting-place was always the Booth Hall at Gloucester until the building of the present Shire Hall in the early 19th Century, except that during the years 1685-1688 there were sessions held at Cirencester, Painswick, and Wotton-under-Edge; but this may be connected with a remark in the order book, at Trinity 1687, that 'the smallpox is very rife in this citty' (Gloucester).
The authority of the county justices did not run unchallenged throughout Gloucestershire. To begin with, the city of Gloucester was itself a county and from 1483 included the Hundreds of Dudstone and King's Barton--a considerable area, called the 'In-shire'--until they were restored to the county in 1672. The borough of Tewkesbury had until 1951 its own justices, granted by royal charter in 1605. The Hundreds of Cheltenham and Slaughter were Liberties, upon which the privilege of separate Quarter Sessions courts had been bestowed, originating from a grant of 1247, when the Abbey of Fécamp received these Hundreds from the Crown in exchange for Rye and Winchelsea. (Placita Quo Warranto (Rec. Comm.), pp. 257-8.) Some records of proceedings before the Cheltenham sessions of the peace, in the 15th and early 16th Centuries, have been preserved in the Public Record Office (P.R.O., SC 2/175/25-27.), and records of the Slaughter sessions (held at Stow-on-the-Wold) in the early sixteen-hundreds are among muniments of the Whitmore family, now deposited in the Gloucestershire Records Office. (Ref. D 45.) The Cheltenham court does not seem to have survived the Reformation, but the Slaughter court continued until the Civil War.
The justices were not a corporate body, and for centuries their only permanent official was the Clerk of the Peace, who advised them on legal questions, drew up indictments and other formal documents, maintained the routine of the court, and had charge of its archives between sessions. This officer, mentioned as early as 1285, was until 1888 appointed by the Custos Rotulorum, who was originally a senior justice nominally responsible for the custody of the 'rolls' of Quarter Sessions; since the 17th Century, however, the office has by custom been held by the Lord Lieutenant. Nowadays the office of Clerk of the Peace is held jointly with that of Clerk of the County Council. The Clerk was often of good family, and if not legally qualified could treat the post as a sinecure, employing a deputy to carry out the work. (In Gloucestershire, from 1801 to 1852, an able Dursley solicitor, Edward Bloxsome, was deputy to William Tudor. The latter had started life as William Cole, brother of the butcher's daughter who became Countess of Berkeley. Tudor was appointed Clerk of the Peace by his brother-in-law the 5th Earl (Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum, 1766-1810), and in the Berkeley peerage claim of 1811 was the principal witness who testified to the trumped-up earlier marriage by which his patron's eldest son tried unsuccessfully to prove his legitimacy.) The active Clerk or Deputy Clerk would have a private legal practice in addition to his official duties. His remuneration until 1853 was by fees, not salary, and out of it he had, of course, to pay his staff.
CHAIRMEN OF QUARTER SESSIONS
Although there are occasional references to 'the Chairman' in the Quarter Sessions Order Books at the end of the 17th Century, the names of justices present at Quarter Sessions are normally given in order of rank, and there is nothing to show which of them actually took the chair. Probably a chairman was elected on the first day of each sessions. From about 1710, however, the name of one particular justice, not usually of exalted social position, appears first in the list for a number of successive sessions, and it may be concluded that he acted as chairman. In the Minute Books, starting in 1781, the word 'chairman' sometimes appears after the first name.
The following, so far as can be judged, have acted as regular chairmen:
John Viney, c.1710-19
John Cocks, 1719-28
Thomas Cooke or Charles Hyett, 1728-43
Thomas Hayward (occasionally from 1738), 1743-68
Sir William Strachan, Bt., 1769-77
(Various justices, 1777-80) (At Trinity Sessions, 1778, the list of justices in the Order Book starts with the names of Thomas, Samuel, Charles, and William Hayward, the bench or their clerk having evidently been struck by the fact that four justices of the same surname were present. Samuel Hayward of Sandhurst does not appear to have been actually related to the others. Thomas (chairman 1738-68, d.1781 aged 75) and his two sons were of the Quedgeley family, now Curtis-Hayward, which provided also a 19th Century chairman.)
Alexander Edgar, 1780-85
Dodington Hunt, 1785-96
The Rev. John Foley, 1796-1803
Charles Tirrel Morgan, 1803-04
The Rt. Hon. Charles Bathurst, 1805-12
The Rev. George Cooke, D.D., 1813-33
Charles Bathurst, 1833-42
Purnell Bransby Purnell, 1842-63
John Curtis Hayward, 1863-74
Sebastian Stewart Dickinson, 1874-78
John Edward (afterwards Sir John, Bt.) Dorington, 1878-79
Russell James Kerr, 1889-1904
Francis (afterwards Sir Francis) Adams Hyett, 1904-29
Lt. Col. Russell (afterwards Sir Russell) James Kerr, 1929-36
Stamford Hutton, O.B.E., 1937-41
His Honour Judge Alfred Ravenscroft Kennedy, K.C., 1941-43
Robert Crompton Hutton, 1943-
During the 19th Century there were sometimes separate chairmen for the administrative and judicial business of the court, e.g. Charles Bathurst, Esq., having resigned, it was resolved 'that Ebenezer Ludlow, Esq., Sergeant at Law, be Chairman of the Appellate and Judicial Court and that Purnell Bransby Purnell, Esq., be Chairman of Financial and all General County Business' (Order Book, 1842). The latter was, however, regarded as the 'County Chairman'. Since 1939 a legally qualified chairman has been appointed under the terms of the Administration of Justice (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 1938.
CLERKS OF THE PEACE
This list gives the names and terms of office of Clerks of the Peace and their deputies from 1660, when the Quarter Sessions records begin. It is based mainly on entries in the earlier Order Books and Clerks' signatures endorsed on documents deposited with them. The earliest known Clerk of the Peace for Gloucestershire was Henry Lecche, c.1392-99. The names and dates of Clerks before 1660 can be obtained from the Pipe Rolls and the estreats of fines returned to the Exchequer. A list of Clerks for all counties, based on these sources, is being prepared by the Society of Clerks of the Peace.

Four 14th Century rolls of Gloucestershire Sessions of the Peace (1361-63, 1378, 1384-86, 1395-98), taken to London by the justices of assize and preserved among the Assize Rolls and Ancient Indictments in the Public Record Office, were edited by Dr. Elisabeth Kimball in Transactions of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society, Vol. LXII (1940). W. B. Willcox, in Gloucestershire, A Study in Local Government 1590-1640 (Yale University Press, 1940) deals inter alia with the work of the justices and their relations with the central government. Sidney and Beatrice Webb's The Parish and the County (1906), the standard work on local government by the justices of the peace after 1689, draws largely on Gloucestershire sources. The work of the Gloucestershire J.P.s during the last quarter of the 18th Century is studied in an unpublished thesis for the Cambridge Ph.D., 'Local Government in Gloucestershire, 1775-1800', by Miss E. A. L. Moir, a copy of which is in the County Records Office (D 1268).
Middlesex, Warwickshire and Hertfordshire have printed large parts of their Quarter Sessions records in detail, with full and scholarly introductions. A number of county record offices have issued guides or handbooks, some more detailed than others, to Quarter Sessions and other official records. The compilers of the present catalogue are particularly indebted to the Guide to the Essex Record Office, Part I (1946) and the Descriptive Report on the Quarter Sessions... Records... of West and East Sussex (1954), and for typography, to the Interim Handlist of Somerset Quarter Sessions Documents and other Official Records (1947).

GLOUCESTERSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS ARCHIVES
Some counties are fortunate enough to possess Quarter Sessions 'rolls' (files), running in almost unbroken series from the 16th Century, and order books or minute books from the early 17th. Gloucestershire has nothing before the date of the Restoration. (But see Bibliographical Note (p. xiii) and Appendix II (p. 85) for earlier records surviving in other custody.) The order books run from 1672, with one volume missing (1692-1701), but there are no sessions files until 1728. From about 1730 the records are fairly complete; they include most of the classes enumerated in the 'Specimen List of Classes of Records which may be found with the Clerk of the Peace' (Appendix to Report of the Royal Commission on Public Records, 1900). Very little, except the registers of alehouse recognizances, seems to have been lost since 1800, while one valuable record was recovered in 1915 when the present earliest Quarter Sessions order book, 1672-81, was found in a solicitor's office in Dursley.
Not much is known about the history of the Quarter Sessions archives before the following order, made at Epiphany sessions, 1733/4:--
Whereas the Clerk of the Peace for this County hath lately at his own expence taken by lease a house near the Boothall in Gloucester for the greater conveniency and more regularly placeing and keeping in the rolls and records of the Peace belonging to this county In consideration whereof It is ordered by this Court that the Treasurer of the County Stock do pay to the Clerk of the Peace the sum of ten pounds towards his fitting up his said office
Thus it is evidently to William James, who had been appointed Clerk at Trinity, 1723, that we owe the establishment of a permanent home for the archives and their subsequent preservation. They were still in the same office in Westgate Street when a later Clerk made his report to the Select Committee on Public Records, printed in 1800. The records, he said, were in pretty good preservation, but scarcely a single application in a month was made for any search, inspection, or copy. He thought it might be a good thing if the office could be attached to and made part of a dwelling-house for the residence of an officer, who could keep constant watch over the records.
A committee of seven justices, appointed in 1804 to investigate the records, made a similar report at Epiphany, 1805, earnestly recommending the preservation of the existing records. They were moved to the Shire Hall when it was built a few years later, but no further interest in the subject appears to have been taken until 1870, when another committee was asked to consider the best means to preserve and render more accessible the records and documents open by law to public inspection. This committee's report (Epiph., 1871) is long and interesting; it mentions the historical value of the records as well as their importance for legal purposes, dwells upon the need for a proper catalogue and indexes, and remarks that
'Record Offices should be large enough to allow of a proper staff of officers and proper and safe repositories and convenient accommodation for searching etc. But when these requisites can be secured, the claims of provincial over central deposit are considerable.'
This report had little noticeable effect, but in 1896, when the Council Chamber was added to the Shire Hall, it became necessary to move the archives. The opportunity was taken to examine them, to destroy superfluous documents, and to make a brief Catalogue of County Records, which was printed in 1898. Care was taken to preserve all documents which were thought to have historical or antiquarian value, though many were not placed in a strongroom until after the establishment of the County Records Office.
The surviving archives cover a wide field of historical interest, as the catalogue will show. Besides the proceedings of the court itself, and documents relating to county administration, they include a great variety of records enrolled or deposited with the court or with the Clerk of the Peace under a long succession of statutes. Social, constitutional, and administrative history, trade, industry, law, finance, and religion are all represented; the topographer as well as the local historian and the genealogist will find grist for his mill; and some documents, notably the inclosure awards and deposited plans of public undertakings, are still frequently consulted for legal purposes. The efficiency which distinguished Gloucestershire Quarter Sessions in the 18th and early 19th Centuries was commended by the historians of local government, (S. and B. Webb, The Parish and the County (1906), pp. 429-430, 441.) and for this period the archives are well preserved. At the end of the 18th Century, thanks to the energy and perseverance of an outstanding county magistrate, Sir George Onesiphorus Paul, Gloucestershire was in the forefront of prison reform, and material of value to students of penology is among the records of the county gaol and the houses of correction.
OTHER COUNTY RECORDS
In addition to the Quarter Sessions archives of the county and of Tewkesbury borough, the present volume briefly lists a number of others which have been deposited with the Gloucestershire Records Office by their official custodians. These comprise the older minutes and other documents of many, though not all, of the Clerks to Petty Sessional Divisions, records of H.M. Coroner for the Stroud Division, shrievalty records (unfortunately comparatively late and scanty) from the County Undersheriff, and records relating to the militia, etc., from the Clerk to the Lieutenancy. As the latter's office has long been held jointly with that of Clerk of the Peace, the absence of any lieutenancy records of the Napoleonic War period or earlier is difficult to account for.

Registers of allowances to solicitors, prosecutors and witnesses in criminal prosecutions, giving names and sums allowed. Quarter Sessions was authorised by 25 Geo.

Later Acts enlarged this provision to include witnesses, and it was extended to cases of misdemeanour by 7 Geo. IV, c.64 (1826). The same Act required Quarter Sessions to publish a scale of allowances after approval by a justice of assize. The justices established a scale in 1829.

BONDS  Q/CB  [n.d.]

Bonds of flax-growers  Q/CB/2  1795-1798

Contents:
Bonds of flax-growers to the clerk of the peace to ensure against false claims for government flax bounty. Giving names, parishes, and occupations of the grower and his sureties, quantity and location of flax grown, and amount of bounty to be paid. Locations are Arliongham, Dymock, Mickleton, Preston, Quinton (now Worcs.), Whitminster, and Wickhamford (Worcs.)
A fund raised earlier for additonal duties on foreign linens was applied to furnish a bounty of 3d. per stone on hemp and 4d. per stone on flax to English growers, by 21 Geo. III, c.58 (1780-1781) and 26 Geo III, c.43 (1786). Claims for bounty were to be exhibited to the justices and transmitted to Quarter Sessions. On annual statements of claims the Treasury remitted the money through the Receiver of Land Tax to Quarter Sessions, for payment to individual claimants. On receiving their bounty, claimants were required to enter a bond with the clerk of the peace.

The returns in this group are the quarterly and annual returns laid before QS by the Chief Constable, and copies of the annual statements sent to the Home Office.

Contents:
This collection of objects, documents and photographs reflects a murder investigation following the discovery of a headless torso in the River Severn at Hawbridge, which extended over the whole country and involved hundreds of interviews. The matter was never resolved; murder was not proved or any other particular crime disclosed. The cause of death remains unknown
In the summing up Chief Inspector Worth of Scotland Yard listed the insurmountable obstacles facing the police; the suddenness of the happening, the total absence of motive, the unsatisfactory identity of the victim, the failure to locate the scene of dismemberment and to trace persons living who were implicated. He attributed his lengthy report to 'most unusual and mystifying circumstances' surrounding the case.
The local press, issuing three editions daily of lengthy and detailed accounts of the progress of the enquiry and interviews with people, affected the reliability of many who came forward to give information, including two very active hoaxers. The time lapse between 10 January 1938 when blood stains discovered on the bridge were dismissed as non-human and 3 February 1938 when the torso was found gave ample time for those involved to cover their traces.
Chief Inspector Worth commented:
'I believe this to be no perfect crime as suggested in some newspapers. The solution was a simple one at one stage, but unfortunate events enabled a lapse of time to ensue that has been the prevailing bugbear throughout the whole investigation.'

COUNTY GAOL AND HOUSES OF CORRECTION  Q/G  [n.d.]

Contents:
The starting-point of these records was the reform and rebuilding of the county gaol and houses of correction, 1785-90. A simple series of books to be kept by visiting justices, governors, chaplains and surgeons was prescribed in the rules approved by Quarter Sessions in 1790. A new and more elaborate series was introduced under Quarter Sessions rules of 1844.
The county gaol, like other prisons, was transferred to the Prison Commissioners in 1878. The houses of correction remained under the control of Quarter Sessions, since by 1860 they had become merely 'houses of remand' and so were outside the scope of the Prisons Act, 1877. The variety of records kept was considerably reduced by their change in status and only Littledean produced any later than 1878.

Source of acquisition: Deposited by H.M Prison & Remand Centre, Barrack Square, Gloucester GL1, per Clerk of the Peace between 1936 & 1958, per Mr R Dempsey, Governor 12 November 1996, per Ms J Hart, Supplies Executive Officer, 7 May 1997 and per Home Office, 26 November 1998


Contents:
From the 12th century, Gloucester castle was used as the county gaol. The records of the gaol survive as separate series from the reform and rebuilding of the county gaol (and houses of correction) which took place between 1785 and 1790 following John Howard's critical report in 1777. A series of books to be kept by visiting justices, governors, chaplains and surgeons was prescribed in rules approved by Quarter Sessions in 1790. A new convict prison east of the 1791 gaol was built between 1844 and 1850 (see 21/1 below) and a new and more elaborate series of records was introduced under Quarter Sessions rules of 1844. In 1877 prisons ceased to be the responsibilty of the Quarter Sessions and were transferred to the Prison Commissioners. The Home Office took over from the Prison Commissioners in 1963.
For further background to the building and administration of Gloucester gaol see Prison Reform in Gloucestershire, 1776-1820 by J R S Whiting, 1975; Victoria History of Gloucestershire vol IV pp. 245-7 Gloucestershire Quarter Sessions Archives 1660-1889 and other official records.

Record of [previous] conviction books  Q/Gc/13/1-15  (1880)-1936

Contents:
Contain a double page for each prisoner. Details include name, sentence, court, place & date of conviction, offence of which found guilty, reference to nominal register, age, height (not always filled in); prison where sentence undergone. These registers are compiled in date order of current conviction but include all recorded previous convictions of each prisoner. If a prisoner was convicted again while the register was in use the later conviction(s) were usually added, even if a new register had been started. The dates assigned to each volume therefore indicate the period of its currency, and not the date of the earliest and latest conviction recorded in it.

INSOLVENT DEBTORS  Q/RID  [n.d.]

Contents:
Copy documents deposited with the Clerk of the Peace by order of the Commissioners of the Court of Insolvent Debtors.Proceedings for the discharge of insolvent debtors were administered by Quarter Sessions under 21 Geo. II, c.31 (1747-48) and subsequent Acts. A court for the relief of insolvent debtors, under 3 bankruptcy commissioners, was established in 1813 (53 Geo. III, c.102). This court sat in London, but had power to delegate some of its functions to Quarter Sessions. In 1824 the commissioners were empowered to go on circuit, thus supplanting the jurisdiction of Quarter Sessions (5 Geo. IV, c.61, amended by 7 Geo. IV, c.57 (1826)). The clerk of the peace could act as clerk to the commissioners and duplicates of schedules of debts and debtors' books were to be lodged with him; this explains the preservation of these documents with Quarter Sessions archives.

Minutes of proceedings in cases of insolvent debtors under Acts of 5 George IV, c.61, and 7 George IV, c.57  Q/RID/1  1824-1833
