Law and Order

Occasionally Glascoed people got on the wrong side of the law - or were wronged themselves. Most of the references I have to this are from the local newspapers. I was really disappointed to find that many of the “Petty sessions” records from the Victorian period were recycled and re-written on (the back) rather than preserved. Any Petty or Quarter Sessions records that I am able to find will be in this part of the site. Fortunately, newspapers captured many of these court appearances, so the Newspapers section includes many interesting cases.
