  • How to use the Records
    Function

    This series consists of volumes detailing information regarding persons appointed as bailiffs. A bailiff is a court official who assists the Sheriff in duties such as the execution of writs, serving summonses etc.

    System of Arrangement/Control

    Information contained in these volumes is arranged in two alphabetical sequences although the same detail is found in both. The first sequence is arranged by the bailiffs surname, the other by location. Entries in the surname sequence refer users to the location sequence.

    Contents and Related Records

    Entries detail the name (or location) of the bailiff, the position (ie. type of bailiff) and a schedule number. This number refers the user to the Schedule of Appointment appointing the bailiff as found in VPRS 7744 Staff Appointment Books. Entries are also annotated with any detail regarding deaths or resignations which occurred during the active use of the register.

    End of Series

    Series probably ended in 1956. A notation of the end of the alphabetical sequence of the final volume notes that all appointments of bailiffs were terminated on 31 January 1956. A Government Gazette extract dated 18 January 1956 found inside the front cover of the same volume indicates that Police Station officials at the locations noted were automatically appointed as bailiffs.
