Diocese of Norwich: Consistory Court Minute and Act Books

  • DN/MIN
  • Fonds
  • 1720-1956

Initially, concerned overwhelmingly with 'office' causes (the third volume listed here is labelled, 'Ex Officio Book') of a sexual nature, adultery, fornication, antemarital fornication and the like, but also dealing with the licensing of surgeons, schoolmasters, etc. The first few volumes are the most informative, and actually provide details of the types of offence involved. Later (post 1750) volumes appear to be summaries of Consistory Court act books, and are very formal and technical in what they record. Occasional references to tithes and clerical non-residency appear, but in general, entries merely record the passage of court procedure. Those dating from the late 19th century onwards appear to be almost exclusively relating to the granting of faculties.
