NORTHUMBERLAND QUARTER SESSIONS


The entire contents of this catalogue are shown below. Browse the hierarchical structure instead

Reference Q
Covering dates 1580 - 1971
Held by Northumberland Record Office
Source of acquisition Acc No: NRO 00

Contents:
In theory records of the Court of Quarter Sessions ought to survive from the fourteenth century. In reality the earliest surviving record is the Vetera Indictamenta 1580 - 1630 which is a single volume of indictments. No other records survive for the early period. The order books begin in 1680 and there is a complete series until 1971. Other classes of records are incomplete. Covering dates given in the catalogue contents list, for example 1584 - 1971, do not mean that records exist for the entire period 1584 - 1971 merely that the first record is dated 1581 and the last 1971. The detailed lists give all the dates of records held.
The records have been listed under six main headings which describe a specific role of the court or records relating to a particular class of court official. The headings are:
The Justices (reference QJ)
The Court in Session (reference QS)
Administration (reference QA)
Finance (reference QF)
Registration Enrolment and Deposit (reference QR)
The Clerks of the Peace (reference QC)
Each class of record under these headings has been given one or two further letters as a unique reference for example indictments are records relating to the Court in Session so they have the reference QSI. QS for the Court in Session and I for Indictment. The Discharge Prisons Aid Society was administered by the Clerk of the Peace and so its records have the reference QC (for Clerk of the Peace) DP.
Each list has a brief introduction describing the records listed and any relevant information. Some records are 'box listed' only and others have been listed in detail.

The files from 1680 to 1724 have been bound in 62 volumes except volume 54 which, with volumes 63 - 92, remains unbound. Each paper in the files was numbered at an early date and these numbers have been retained.

Order Books  QSO  1680 - 1971

Contents:
Quarter sessions order books are the formal record of court proceedings. The entries contain enrolment of indictments, orders on administrative matters and the appointment and payment of county officers. They record the decisions and orders of the court. The series begins in 1680, with the first volume written in Latin, and ends in 1971 with the final session of the court on 21 December 1971 when all the Justices of the Peace signed the final entry. The first volume in Latin consists almost entirely of presentments, indictments and recognizances and is not typical of the series.

PROBATION RECORDS  QSPB  [n.d.]

Northumberland Combined Probation Areas Committee.  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The Northumberland Combined Probation Committee was constituted under section 2 of The Criminal Justice Act of 1925. The Committee served the county of Northumberland with the exception of the County Borough of Newcastle. The Clerk of The Peace served as clerk to the Committee which constituted justices from the various county and borough divisions served by the Committee as well as ex-officio members - the chairman and deputy chairman of the Northumberland Quarter Sessions and the Recorder of the Borough of Berwick Upon Tweed or some person deputed by him. The committee was responsible for appointing Probation Officers. The Probation Committees of each of the petty sessional or borough divisions making up the Combined Committee were expected to submit annual reports to the latter. Some of these reports survive amongst this series of records. In addition, the Combined Probation Committee drew up it it's own annual report which was submitted to the Quarter Sessions.
