St Albans

The Rolls are the working papers of the General Court of Quarter Sessions for the old Borough of St Alban. They provide a fascinating glimpse of life in a small market town of about 4000 inhabitants at the turn of the 18th century. Trials at St Albans were for non-capital minor offences, however punishments could be quite severe including transportation to the colonies.
