Supreme Court of Judicature: High Court of Justice, Chancery and King's Bench Divisions: Depositions
Statements on oath used in evidence in civil proceedings in the Queen's Bench and Chancery Divisions of the High Court of Justice. The Chancery depositions arise mainly from disputes concerning the administration of estates and trusts of settlement; those from the King's Bench relate mostly to actions relating to breaches of contract, claims for damages, recovery of debts, etc. Similar depositions from 1926 to 1959 have not survived, but from 1960 onwards a representative selection has been preserved. There is also a small amount of other material, such as documents exhibited in court, etc., including records arising from the trial of Sir Roger Casement in 1916.
Depositions are listed in date order, and within each year they are arranged alphabetically under plaintiff's names.
