Supreme Court of Judicature and former Superior Courts: Central Office and predecessors: Documents Exhibited or Deposited in Court

Most of these documents relate to actions in the Court of Chancery or the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice but there are a few relating to actions in the Queen's/King's Bench Division, the Court of King's Bench and the Exchequer.

The documents arise mainly from disputes concerning the administration of estates, and were deposited by either plaintiffs or defendants, or occasionally impounded by the trial judge. There are also a number concerning the winding-up of companies, patents of invention, and deeds of settlement on marriage; a few concern actions for debt and disputes regarding leases and charter parties. Among the many miscellaneous documents deposited will be found maps, plans, catalogues of sale, share certificates and specimens of printed labels.
