Within a given court term, case files may be divided into cases which reached a judgment or verdict, and cases which ended before judgment. Judgments in docket order are followed by discontinuances in docket order. If the court clerk did not separate the two types of cases there will be one docket sequence of case files for that term. Miscellaneous files include court administration documents such as jail reports, jury venires, vouchers for costs from court officials or witnesses, financial accounts, documents related to licensing of public houses, and bar admission recommendations. There may also be inquests, poor debtor oaths, and case files unrelated to docketed cases. From 1900-1917 probation reports are included in miscellaneous court documents.

    Scope: Case files include all documents generated during the process of a civil or criminal court trial, and may be extensive, minimal, or nonexistent for any given case. They may include writs, affidavits, depositions, subpoenas, verdicts, pleas, motions, warrants, indictments, informations, recognizances, mittimuses, bonds, bills of costs, witness certificates, transcripts, documents relating to appeals, and supporting documents such as deeds, promissory notes, statements, and inventories.

Inquests and jail reports are included with case files if docketed, or placed with miscellaneous court records if undocketed. Franklin county court clerks arranged case files alphabetically by plaintiff for each court term, rather than by docket number. This order has been maintained. Each case is filed with the court term in which it ended. In a given court term, some cases reached a judgment or verdict, while other cases were ended by the plaintiff before judgment. The clerk separated judgments from discontinued cases, so case files are arranged for each term with judgments in alphabetical order, followed by discontinuances in alphabetical order. Miscellaneous files include court administration documents such as jail reports, jury venires, vouchers for costs from court officials or witnesses, financial accounts, documents related to licensing of public houses and peddlers, and bar admissions.

    Extent: 23 cubic feet. Access: Open
    Scope: Series consists of clerk’s dockets covering 1818-1912 court terms, and one 1919 bar docket. A loose-leaf docket book, which is missing most of its original pages, includes only an undated index of cases from 1913-1918. There are no surviving dockets at all for the years 1919-1944. A civil index card file covers civil and chancery cases from 1944 -1961. Court dockets, kept by the court clerk, are court calendars which record all cases in order for each court term, assigning a number to each case. Before 1895 Franklin County courts followed an unusual docketing system in which cases were arranged in order of their beginning court term, and kept the same docket number for all court terms. For any given court term, there might be several cases with the same docket number. Beginning in 1895, each case retains a unique original number through all court terms. Docket entries include plaintiff and defendant, attorneys, jury members, and a brief summary of action taking place that court term. Entries often include court costs for a case, and may include the criminal charge or type of civil case. Dockets may also record other information for each court term, including judges and court officials, term dates, jury lists, admissions to the bar, naturalizations, appointment of county officials, granting of liquor licenses, court administrative costs, and new court procedural rules.

Case files are arranged in docket order by court term. Until 1895, a case which continued over several court terms was assigned a different docket number for each term, but should be filed under the docket number assigned for the term in which the case ended. After 1895, each case kept the same case number from term to term. In a given court term, some cases reached a judgment or verdict, while other cases were ended by the plaintiff before judgment. If the court separated judgments from discontinued cases, case files are arranged for each term with judgments in docket order followed by discontinuances in docket order. If the court did not separate the two types of cases, there will be one docket sequence of cases for that term. Miscellaneous files include court administration documents such as jail reports, jury venires, vouchers for costs from court officials or witnesses, financial accounts, documents related to licensing of public houses and peddlers, and bar admissions. There may also be inquests, poor debtor oaths, and case files for undocketed cases. From 1901-1917 probation reports are included in miscellaneous court documents for some court terms.

    Extent: 13 cubic feet. Access: Open
    Scope: The series consists of court dockets, two judge’s dockets, and five bar dockets. Court dockets, kept by the court clerk, are court calendars which record all cases in order for each court term, assigning a unique number to each case. Docket numbers change from term to term until 1895, when each case retains its original number through all court terms. Docket entries include plaintiff and defendant, attorneys, jury members, and a brief summary of action taking place that court term. Entries often include court costs for a case. Dockets may also record other information for each court term, including judges and court officials, term dates, jury lists, admissions to the bar, naturalizations, appointment of county officials, granting of liquor licenses, court administrative costs, and new court procedural rules. All Lamoille dockets except the first volume are indexed by plaintiff, although some indexes are incomplete. A separate chancery court docket comprises a section of the county court docket books for the court terms December 1845 and June 1846, and for all court terms after December 1850. Beginning in December 1909, divorce and criminal cases have their own docket sections, and civil, criminal, and divorce cases are assigned separate docket number ranges. The two judge’s dockets contain similar brief entries on each case. The printed bar dockets list judges, lawyers, court officials, court rules, fees, and each docketed case for that term.

    Series ID: LACC-002 (Click for Index) Location: State Archives
    Extent: 23 volumes, 2 cubic feet. Access: Open
    Scope: Record books contain entries by the court clerk summarizing each case that ended in a judgment. Beginning in 1875, divorce judgments, called decrees, were entered in separate volumes. The recording of Lamoille county court judgments was highly irregular. Only post-1889 entries are arranged consistently in chronological order by court term, in volumes exclusively limited to the county court. Because of the scattered nature of these records, and the lack of indexes for some volumes, the researcher must rely on the master General Index of County and Supreme Court Records to locate judgment entries for individual cases. The two master index volumes cover cases between 1836 and 1947, and are arranged alphabetically by plaintiff for each court term. Entries note record book volumes, page numbers, case beginning and ending dates, and docket numbers. The indexes also include entries on discontinued cases, which are not entered in the record books, but which may have case files. In addition to the two index volumes arranged by plaintiff, there is a set of index cards recording 1836-1968 county and supreme court cases by defendant. The cards are arranged alphabetically, but within each letter there is no alphabetical or chronological order of cases.
