York Assizes

This is an index to records held in York Reference library of prisoners brought to trial at York Assizes in the period 1785 – 1851.

Pre-July 1800 ages were not given and after this time place of origin was generally not given. There are occasional gaps.

Please Note: York Family History Society is NOT able to offer a look up service, however Explore York Archives do as part of their enquiry service. Whilst the look-up service is free, digital copies of the entry/entries required can also be produced for a fee. Please contact archives@exploreyork.org.uk for further details.

The Archive’s records give quite a lot of detail and, in most cases, there are also the results of the trials. Some of these are published HERE
