Dorset Quarter Sessions Order Book 1625-1638


SKU: 437 Category:


(Ed Terry Hearing & Sarah Bridges) Dorset Record Society Vol 14.  Consists of 642 numbered folios plus some additional sheets.

The Order Book is the earliest available for the County of Dorset, and no other documents concerning Quarter Sessions for the county before the civil war appear to have survived.  Because of the limited survival of these records, this book is the best source for the history of local government in Dorset.

503 pages.  Hardback.
