Register of Insolvent Debtors – 1824-1834

This booklet was compiled by members of the Devon Family History Society in co-operation with the Devon Records Office. The booklet provides an extract of some information and further details may be obtained from the Devon Records Office. This Register of Insolvent Debtors [QS 36/2] which covers the years 1824 to 1847, is found among the Devon County Quarter Sessions records held at Devon Record Office, Exeter. At the front of the volume is written the oaths which insolvent debtors and witnesses had to swear in court, before answering questions and giving evidence. Following this are lists of persons brought before the court for each session, beginning with 10th March 1825. The Register gives the name, parish or town of residence and occupation of each insolvent, and the order made in the court concerning the case. Many were discharged, either completely or conditionally, on the date of their appearance.
