Cromarty Courthouse Museum
These leather-bound volumes at Cromarty Courthouse total 33 in number. They are the ‘Public Statutes’, or enacted (or passed) legislation from 1805 to 1896. This period covers the reigns of King George IV, King William IV and Queen Victoria.
Once to be found in Cromarty Sherriff Court, they would have been an essential resource for those who worked in the legal profession. They give us an insight into the complexity of the law and how difficult the process of searching for specific information must have been.
