About Surrey, England, Jury-Qualified Freeholders and Copyholders, 1696-1824

An act of 1696 required that lists of men qualified to serve as jurors be provided to the Quarter Sessions. To be qualified, the men had to be between the ages of 21 and 70 and possess property with an annual value of £10 or more. After 1730 the qualification was extended to men in possession of a long lease with an annual value of at least £20.

This collection contains lists of those qualified to serve as jurors in Surrey, England, and includes the names of qualified men, the parish, and at times a street name and possibly occupation.
