Prerogative Court of Canterbury: Bound Volumes of Depositions
Bound volumes of depositions of witnesses in causes heard by the Prerogative Court of Canterbury for the period 1826-1858. In a few instances interrogatories, and exhibits annexed to interrogatories or cited in the depositions were bound up with the depositions.
It should be noted that where F H Dyke and Iltid Nicholl appear as parties they appear as HM Procurators General and were therefore acting for the crown. Such causes generally relate to the estates of insane or illegitimate intestates whose estates escheated to the crown.
The series list is organised by name of cause and is listed in chronological order.
Depositions produced in civil law courts take the form of responses to written questions submitted by proctors acting for either of the parties to the cause. The written questions were known as interrogatories or articles and were derived from the allegations of the plaintiffs.
