These records can help you trace your family tree and understand the lives of your ancestors. Order the full entry for a research fee of £3.00.

The information listed above is an index entry only. The full original record contains more details, including the crime the person was accused of. You can order an image of the full entry for a search fee of £3.00. By clicking 'Add to Cart', you will place an order for this item in your PayPal 'Shopping Cart'; our PayPal account is in the name of 'Graham Maxwell'. There is a link to the Shopping Cart at the foot of each page on the site so that you can review or amend your order at any time. Once you pay for your order we send the entry (or entries) to you as soon as possible by email, normally within a few hours.

As well as supplying an image of the original entry, one of our genealogists will let you know if there are any other surviving records and how you can access them. As is the case today, some cases went on to the High Court, some to the Sheriff Court or another lower court, and some were dismissed. This means that the Crown Counsel Procedure Books act as a finding aid to other records. In time we hope to link more records to this database.

What will the full entry tell you? The columns on the original volumes are as follows:

A.D. [Advocate]
Date of Receipt
Name of Accused
Date of transmitting
Additional Procedures
When returned with opinion
How disposed of
