Chancery: Master Chandler's Miscellaneous Books

Miscellaneous Books transferred from the chambers of Master Pretor Whitty Chandler, who served in the Chancery Division of the High Court from 1913 until 1938. The series does include material generated by his predecessors and inherited by him. The predecessors of Master Pretor Whitty Chandler (1913-1938) in his role as a Master/Chief Clerk were Master Richard John Villiers (1894-1912), Master Charles Harwood Clarke (1873-1893) and, for causes with initial letters O-Z, Master Henry Leman (1852-1872).

These books relate principally to liquidation proceedings of the Court of Chancery taken in chambers. Many of the proceedings concern banks and insurance, mining and railway companies.
