Readings on statutes, Mid seventeenth century

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Ee.06.03

Scope and Contents

Readings delivered in the middle temple on various statutes, and the arguments arising out of them, at various times from 2 August 1613 to 2 August 1620. The readers' names are Welsh, Wotton, Serjt Harvye, Reynell, Barker, Marten, Francis Ashley, Nicholas Hyde, Richard Hadsor, Pye, Rives, Whitlock, Hoskins and Trist. The manuscript gives an insight into the mode of conducting exercises practised in the inns of court, since much care has been taken by the writer in transcribing all the arguments, and affixing the names of the arguers. The exercises of Whitlock, Hoskins and Trist are given very elaborately.
