Final volume of essential material for study of criminal justice in Kent and wider national context, 1625-88.Seventeenth-century Kent indictments have survived in larger numbers then have those of any other county, and they therefore provide a particularly full picture of the adminstration of criminal justice, the organisation of the assizes, the role of the judges and officials, and the whole process of criminal trial. This volume contains a full calendar of all the material relating to Kent from 1625 to 1688 which exists among the assize indictment files for the Home Circuit. The calendar also includes judges' commissions; writs and precepts; lists of local officials; coroners' inquests; and appeals of felony.
This volume is the last in a series of four, all edited by Professor J.S. Cockburn, with earlier titles covering Kent from 1625-1675; they are available upon enquiry from HMSO. Professor J.S. COCKBURN teaches in the History Department at the University of Maryland.
