2.2.4 PALATINE COURTS

2.2.4 PALATINE COURTS


These were special jurisdictions in which the King’s writ did not run. The Palatinate of Chester (external link) was a portion of the Earldom of Chester, the Palatinate of Durham (external link) was presided over by the Bishop of Durham, and the Duchy of Lancaster (external link) was created from the Earldom of Lancaster, when the Earl became Duke in 1351. Each palatinate had its own administration and kept its own records. The published sources are listed in Graves’ 1975 bibliography(29). Only the published plea rolls of the courts are listed below.
