Scope and content

The series consists of four volumes of offence and complaint books dating from 1924 to 1949. Two books appear to have been kept concurrently for the period 1943 to 1947. Offences do not appear to be duplicated between them. The volumes provide a brief description of the offence, the action taken by authorities, and the result. The volumes cover a variety of offences, from unattended livestock to allegations of domestic abuse. Typical entries list the name of the complainant(s) as well as names of those interviewed or searched. A nominal index is included in the front of the 1943-1947 and 1943-1949 volumes.
