Warrants to the wardens and gaolers of the Fleet Prison for the release of debtors in their care. The series also contains a few misplaced letters, and storeroom details relating to the Queen's Prison.
The prisoner's commitment number can be used to trace records in other series.
Debtors were freed when the plaintiff's opportunity to render a case against the defendant had expired, when the debt was paid off (usually through charitable means) or if the prisoner was freed in accordance with one of the frequent Insolvent Debtors' Acts.
