The Justices of the Peace for the County of Devon in the year 1592

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol. 8 (1876), pp. 517-525.


A.H.A. Hamilton

Prepared by Michael Steer

The paper was presented at the Association's July 1876 Ashburton meeting. It preceded Hamilton's 1877 paper on Devon JP's during the Benevolences of 1614 and 1622, and his 1878 paper on Devon's JP's under Charles I and the Protectorate. JPs constituted a major element of the English (later British) governmental system. The JP system has been termed the squirearchy (i.e., dominance by the land-owning gentry). Depending on the jurisdiction, JPs' dispense summary justice or merely deal with local administrative applications in common law jurisdictions. JPs' conducted arraignments in criminal cases, and tried misdemeanours and infractions of local ordinances and bylaws.
