Donegal Grand Jury Catalogue

Donegal Grand Jury 1753 - 1899 

Grand Juries were in existence since Norman times. Landowners made up the Grand Jury itself, selected by the Sheriff of the County. Grand Juries had no corporate existence,  they were discharged by the Judge of Assize. Before the assizes, presentment sessions were called in each of the six baronies of Donegal, where proposals for work to be

done were considered and submitted to the Grand Jury for ratification. Services provided and paid for by Grand Jury Cess, a rate payable by occupiers, included making, and repair of roads and bridges and construction of courthouses, levying for support of district hospitals, schools and prisons. Records of the Grand Jury of Donegal, including assizes, general information, treasurers' accounts; other financial records; resolutions; minutes of meetings; correspondence; and memoranda.
