Courts of Requests, 1787 

One of a number of accounts of Birmingham by William Hutton. He sat as a magistrate in the Court of Requests, which dealt with petty crime and disputes in Birmingham. He describes many of the most memorable cases he dealt with, and how they were resolved using as much his own common sense as the letter of the law. A fascinating social document, with many people named in cases. Kindly loaned to the project by the Birmingham and Midland Institute.
