Marshalsea Commitment & Discharge Books - Ancestry
« on: Saturday 04 October 14 16:08 BST (UK) »
My 3xGt-Grandfather Thomas James Boardman was committed to the Marshalsea Prison several times - I am particularly interested in the entries for 11/7/1840 & 20/7/1840 as the suit was brought by his father-in-law William Cranch.  But I don`t understand what is written under "How Discharged" - it looks like 1 & 2 Victoria.  Can anyone help please?

Jane

It probably refers to the Judgments Act 1838 c. 110 (Regnal. 1 and 2 Vict)

See section VI Defendant may apply for his Discharge forthwith.
