Notes

Digital capture of original records at State Records of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia.

The court record books were maintained by the judges associate and could include the day of the week, the date of the month, and the year in which the proceeding is heard, the name of the trial judge, short title of the action showing parties, times occupied by the trial. Each volume contains an alphabetical index at the front, followed by numbered pages recording the daily events of the Court. Each page is divided into two columns. The left hand column records the date in numbers, and the times that actions recorded in the right hand column occurred. The right hand column is headed with day, date, month and year, followed by the name of the judge that the parties appeared before, names of both parties involved in the case, and the case file reference in brackets, then the names of persons appearing for the plaintiff and defendant. The subsequent entries precis the actions subsequently unfolding in the court, including details of exhibits tendered and orders made. The early volumes have copies of published civil settings cause lists pasted into the pages preceding the details of the cases. Where prisoners were brought to trial, these were detailed in specially printed pages inserted into the volumes. These records of prisoners for trial were entered into columns on adjacent pages for No., Name, Age, Offence, Brought to Gaol, Committed to Trial, Where Committed, In Gaol Period or on Bail, then on the next page for Plea.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
