Abstract

As we have seen, in early modern England a variety of royal courts dealt with crime and criminals, at county, regional and national levels. But these courts did not deal with all criminal cases; indeed, the bulk of petty crime was dealt with elsewhere. It is to these jurisdictions of the Church, the manor and the borough that we must now turn.
