Summary:
This series is an outdated partial index to Enrolled Chancery Decrees After 1800. It was superseded by J0064, Index of Enrolled Decrees After 1800. File numbers, therefore, no longer refer to actual enrolled decrees since new file numbers were assigned in the subsequent index. Entries include complainant, defendant, solicitor and decree file date. Entries before 1830 also include the object of the suit and the nature of the decree; this information is not included in J0064, Index of Enrolled Decrees.

Scope and Content Note

This series is an outdated partial index to Enrolled Chancery Decrees After 1800. This index was superseded some time in the 19th century by Index of Enrolled Decrees After 1800.

File numbers recorded here no longer refer to actual enrolled decrees; they have been replaced by new file numbers which appear in Index of Enrolled Decrees after 1800. Each entry in the index contains the names of the complainant, defendant, and solicitor and the date the decree was filed. Entries recorded before 1830 also include the object of the suit (i.e., divorce, foreclosure) and the nature of the decree ("divorce granted," "sale"). This information is not included in the Index of Enrolled Decrees.
