Minute Books  Q/SM  [n.d.]

Arrangement: The arrangement of entries in the first four volumes is very haphazard, but from 1763 becomes more systematic, with some classified headings. The volumes covering the years 1727-1809 are numbered 1 - 14 after which volumes are unnumbered until 1904, when a new, numbered, series begins, with an index at the front of each volume (except no.54). From 1918 some entries are typed.

This series, which commences in 1727, is subsidiary to the order books (Q/SO). The minute books are in the nature of drafts or working documents compiled - at any rate in part - during sessions of the court. Unlike the order books, however, they are signed by the justices in attendance (later only the chairman signs). Entries relate to the whole range of the court's business, both judicial and non-judicial, but most are in a sketchy, outline form only and are duplicated and supplemented by the order books, while some classes of enrolments, etc., found in the latter are omitted altogether, e.g. constables' appointments and presentments and inclosure awards. On the other hand, a few types of entries appear not to be duplicated in the order books, notably examinations in settlement and other cases prior to 1800 and calendars of prisoners, 1786-1827. Appeals form an increasing proportion of the record from the late 19th century when the details given are fuller. The less standard entries vary greatly in their fullness and it would require individual comparison to ascertain whether they add anything to the order book.
The minute books have the advantage of being smaller and more convenient to consult than the massive and formally worded order books and might be useful in locating material of interest more quickly.

Sessions books labelled variously "Sessions Records" and "Records". The series, which commences in 1678, contains the formal record of proceedings of the court both judicial and administrative. These books, or earlier versions of them, were referred to in 1690 as "books of Orders of this Court (Bucks Sessions Records vol. 1. p.IX) and this description has been adopted as corresponding most closely to similar records in other counties. They are arranged "with method, system and meticulous care" (Bucks Sessions Records vol. 1. p.IX). In addition to the orders of court, a large proportion of which refer to appeals in disputes relating to legal settlement and highway matters, they contain inter alia particulars of indictments, presentments of the constables, recognisances, calendars of prisoners, enrolments of returns to and registration by Quarter Sessions relating to dissenting meeting houses, oaths and sacramental tests, friendly societies, stopping up of footpaths, convictions at petty sessions, etc., reports of committees (mostly post 1800). Less regular entries include copies of loyal addresses, orders regulating wage rates and enrolments of inclosure awards, 1736-1769. The contents of the earlier volumes to 1724 have been printed in calendar form (with additional documents from 1700) as Buckinghamshire Sessions Records vols. 1-4 (ed. W. LeHardy and G.L. Reckitt), with introduction and full indexes to each volume and a further unpublished volume in the series covering the period 1724-1730 is available for consultation. A ms. summary of the principal business transacted other than routine business, is also available for the period 1730-1733.

This group of records, which was discovered in an overhead cupboard in County Hall in 1967, derives from the functions of the Clerk of the Peace as clerk to the Court for the Relief of Insolvent Debtors under 5 Geo. IV c.61, 1824. It is thus not strictly a Quarter Sessions series. The Court was first constituted in 1813 (53 Geo. III c.102) but initially appears to have delegated many of its functions and it was not until 1824, when local sittings were commenced, that the jurisdiction of Quarter Sessions in such matters finally was repealed.
The majority of the records consist of account books and papers of small tradesmen living in Bucks. In many cases they are scrappy and badly kept; outgoings are seldom given. In the following list the better examples are indicated by G (good) or V.G. (very good).
Details regarding occupations are based on internal evidence in each case and are not necessarily exact. Where possible, they have been checked with Pigotts' directories for 1830 and 1842.
