London Sessions

Records of the London Sessions are kept at the London Metropolitan Archives (LMA). Many times these official court records contain additional information, such as the criminal's place of residence (or place crime was committed) that supplement the journalistic Old Bailey Sessions. LMA has prepared information leaflets (available online) to assist in locating these records:

Some seventeenth-century records have been abstracted:

Peter Wilson Coldham indexed felons who were transported to the American colonies from these records: FHL CD-ROM no. 2150.

Consistory Court
