Jurisdiction

The Archdeaconry Court of Sudbury included also the records of the Court of the Sacrist of St. Edmund’s Abbey for the Peculiar of Bury St. Edmunds, 1354-1539, which then became the Episcopal Commissary Court for Bury St. Edmunds and was officially annexed to the Archdeaconry of Sudbury in 1844. For practical purposes, however, the probate business of the two courts was largely merged from 1566 and there are no separate registers after that date.[1]
