Abstract

"[Warwickshire County Record Office have] published sets of the earliest surviving justice of the peace records for Warwickshire. The Order Books contain orders, proceedings and resolutions of the Quarter Sessions. These are often administrative in nature and were necessitated by the legislation of the Tudor Parliaments and Privy Council. Much of the business of the Order Books is taken up with the administration of poor relief by local overseers." - from digitisation publisher's description.
