Court of Chancery: Six Clerks Office: Answers etc, before 1660

The records in this series consist of pleadings in equity cases initiated in the court of Chancery.

They comprise a miscellaneous collection of bills, answers, replications, rejoinders, commissions and depositions which have become detached from their related documents. The related pleadings may perhaps be found in C 1, C 2 or C 3

Also included are some odd earlier items, and later miscellanea from the Six Clerks Office, including papers relating to the late eighteenth-century inquiry into the six clerks. There are also some materials created by the Court of Requests (REQ) and the Court of Wards: WARD.

After being under arrangement for over 150 years, this series was finally listed in 2001-2008
