Record books of the Vermont Court of Chancery meeting in Lamoille County by Vermont( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Chancery court record books contain entries of court decrees (judgments) by the court clerk. Cases which did not result in a decree are not included. Like the county court and supreme court judgment records, earlier chancery decrees are scattered among several record books that also include entries from the other courts (see Series LACC-002 and SUPR-LA 002). Beginning in 1870, chancery decrees were entered in separate chancery volumes, arranged chronologically by court term. Entries do not include docket numbers. The post-1870 chancery record books are indexed by plaintiff. A General Index of chancery records contains entries arranged by plaintiff for cases from 1837 to 1966 which ended with decrees. It includes record book volume and page number information, case beginning and ending dates, and docket numbers
Docket books of the Vermont Court of Chancery meeting in Orleans County by Vermont( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The series consists of court dockets kept by the court clerk. Dockets are court calendars which record all cases in order for each court term, assigning a unique number to each case. Docket entries include plaintiff and defendant, attorneys and a brief summary of action taking place that court term. Docket entries may also include court costs for a case. All but the first docket book of the series are indexed by plaintiff. Prior to 1840 the chancery court was held by the supreme court during its Orleans County sessions, so the chancery docket is included in the supreme court dockets for those years (see Series SUPR-OR-001). Beginning in 1880, chancery court was held as part of county court sessions, and its docket was recorded in a separate section of the county court docket for each term (see Series ORCC-001)

Case files of the Vermont Court of Chancery meeting in Caledonia County by Vermont( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Case files include all of the documents generated during the process of a chancery court trial, and may be extensive, minimal or nonexistent for any given case. Most documents are related to real estate foreclosures, and include a bill of foreclosure, a master's report that calculates the amount owed on the mortgage, and a decree of foreclosure if the plaintiff wins the case. Supporting documents often include mortgages, deeds, promissory notes and receipts. Subpoenas, affidavits, depositions, motions, pleas, bills of costs, and testimony transcripts may also be included. Cases involving requests for injunctions include a bill of complaint and the defendant's answer to the bill. There may also be findings of fact and temporary or permanent injunctions. A third category of chancery case files includes documents related to dissolving business partnerships and corporations and placing businesses in receivership. Chancery case files are arranged in docket order for each court term. Until 1895 a case which continued over several court terms was assigned a different docket number for each term, but should be filed under the docket number assigned for the term in which the case ended. After 1895 each case kept the same case number from term to term. Note that pre-1840 chancery court case files are included with supreme court case files (see Series SUPR-CA-003), since chancery court was held by the supreme court during that period
Docket books of the Vermont Supreme Court meeting in Franklin County by Vermont( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The series consists of court dockets kept by the court clerk. Court dockets are court calendars which record all cases in order for each court term, assigning a number to each case. Before 1895 Franklin County courts followed an unusual docketing system in which cases were arranged in order of their beginning court term, and kept the same docket number for all court terms. For any given court term, there might be several cases with the same docket number. After 1895, each case retains a unique original number through all court terms. Dockets for the period 1914 to 1943 consist of loose-leaf sheets arranged chronologically, with one sheet recording all information on each case, rather than calendars docketing all cases for each court term. Two card indexes, arranged alphabetically, contain brief entries on supreme court cases from 1897-1935, and 1933-1961. Card entries include references to published Vermont supreme court reports. Docket entries include plaintiff and defendant, attorneys, and a brief summary of action taking place that court term. Entries often include court costs for a case, and may include the criminal charge or type of civil case. Dockets usually record the names of judges and clerk and note court term dates. Early dockets include bar admissions and court accounts. All but the first volume are indexed alphabetically by plaintiff. Chancery cases are intermingled with regular supreme court cases in 1800-1807 dockets, but are identified as chancery in docket entries. Chancery cases are docketed and entered separately after 1808

Record books of the Vermont Court of Chancery meeting in Orleans County by Vermont( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Chancery court record books contain entries of court decrees by the court clerk. Cases which did not result in a decree are not included. Entries are arranged chronologically by court term. Docket numbers were not included until 1927. All chancery record books except for the first volume are indexed by plaintiff. Chancery cases are indexed by both plaintiff and defendant in the master index covering the record books of all three Orleans County courts between 1800 and 1899 (see Series ORCC-002). Prior to 1842, chancery decrees were recorded in the supreme court record books (see Series SUPR-OR-003). There are no record book entries for the year 1841
