Halifax County Court of General Sessions of the Peace fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1770-1886

Fonds consists of minute and other record books documenting the proceedings of the court, as well as returns and other documents gathered into files relating to the assessment and collecting of taxes; returns of justices of the peace, sheriffs and other local officials relating to court proceedings, the county jail, and relief of the poor; and other miscellaneous materials. The minutes record the actions of the court in its judicial and governmental capacity, giving information on the outcomes of criminal trials as well as the actions of the court in its capacity as local government. Two volumes of minute books covering the years 1810 to 1820 appear to be final approved versions while draft and other minute books covering the years 1791-1863 also exist, often as annual notebooks bound into larger volumes. Two volumes covering the years 1834 to 1837, which are labelled as Sessions Books, appear to be correspondence and other material relating to proceedings rather than minutes. In contrast, similarly labelled volumes covering the years 1860 to 1885 are the sessions minutes and include the first five years of minutes for the successor Halifax County Council. Parts of the non-bound records, in particular returns to the Provincial Secretary concerning assessments and judicial and other fees collected by local officials, appear to have been added when the 1976 Inventory of Manuscripts was prepared.
