Many intriguing glimpses of our ancestors come from legal records. Gwyneth Wilkie has two Victorian gentlemen on her family tree that had seemed to be unassailably respectable yet there they were, both standing in the dock. Family historians miss a great deal unless they can find ways into the legal records and then understand the unfamiliar processes. Drawing on material mostly from the 19th century, Gwyneth looks briefly at: - People on both sides of the law; - Some of the most frequent events, such as inquests and bankruptcy; - What happened when some cases were brought to trial.
