Central Criminal Court: Indictments

Indictments at the Central Criminal Court which commence criminal proceedings and set out the nature and date of the offence. They are generally endorsed with the plea of the accused and the jury's verdict. The series also includes subsidiary documents, such as commissions of judges, coroner's inquisitions, gaol deliveries, recognizances, warrants to appear and jury summonses.
