INDICTABLE OFFENCES (c.1745 - c.1782)

Devon Quarter Sessions, DRO - Devon QS10/1

Transcribed by Brian Brassett

Devon Record Office [DRO] QS10/1 is a large leather bound ledger of the mid-18th century covering a period c.1745 to c.1782, and in which is recorded in Parish Hundreds indictable offences to be heard at the County of Devon Quarter Sessions. There are also a few recorded offences concerning malefactors from the counties of Cornwall; Dorset; and Somerset; with a quite separate list of entries covering the City of Exeter. The information is recorded in eleven columns; [i] number of indictment on the file [ii] numeric appearance of the malefactor in the Alphabet [Index] book; [iii] Names of the person[s] charged with the offence[s]; their occupation, and their reputed parish of residence at the time of the offence; [iv] the offence[s] committed; [v] when the bill of indictment was traversed; [vi] at what Sessions the Bill was found; [vii] when the indictment was tried or submitted; [viii] the verdict [if any]; [ix] the sentence passed; [x] fines or otherwise imposed upon submission; [xi] in what Sessions Bundle the Bill may be found.

The numeric appearance column [ii] of a malefactor in the 'alphabet index book' QS10/2 is not an entirely reliable aid. Many names are missing.
