High Court of Admiralty Examinations, 1536-1641

Material relating to Ireland

The High Court of Admiralty was established between 1340 and 1360 and it was probably set up to deal with the problems of piracy and spoil. It was stated that as an 'Admiralty Court' it was not bound by the rules of common law, but must administer "Equity and the Law of the Sea"

The work of Reginald G. Marsden is the best introduction to the early history of this court ('Select Pleas in the Court of Admiralty'. Selden Soc., vols., Vi and XI, 1894 and 1897)

AS with any court, cases were heard involving plaintiffs and defendants. Documents relating to any case, examinations and depositions of witnesses were studied by the court or its employees and decisions made. Appeals may or may not have been presented.

"Most of the surviving records of the court are clasified in a series of documents separate from civil and prize cases. This includes a wide range of material such as commissions of oyer and terminer, warrants, indictments, lists of gaol delivery, letters, minutes and examination books running from 1537-1776, which contain the depositions of the accused person, complainents and witnesses. Much of the material conerns the activities of pirates at sea, or of 'aiders and abettors'' ashore, but there are other cases concerning theft, murder or manslaughter, sodomy and mutiny."(A Calendar of Material relating to Ireland, from the High Court of Examinations, 1536-1641" Ed. John C. Appleby. Publ. Irish Manuscripts Commission, 1992. ISBN 1 874280 03 7)

SHIP PASSENGER LISTS  p. 80  [219]
Peter Rigglesworth purchased by Robert GLASCOCKE, was a land owner by 1652 when Robert Grimes patenting 300 acres lying at the head of the westernmost branch of Elizabeth River describes it as adjoining Peter RIGGLESWORTH. (The westernmost branch of Elizabeth River is now usually called "Western Branch").  Robert GLASCOCKE received a patent on 7 Oct 1635, for 200 acres lying in Elizabeth City County adjoining Lieutenant CHEESEMAN. (The Glascock, like many other Warwick and Elizabeth City County families, somewhat later moved to the Northern Neck of Virginia which lies between the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers).

RICHARD  AND  ROBERT GLASCOCKE who arrived in Virginia in 1635
The earliest recorded emigrants from England to Virginia were Richard and Robert GLASCOCKE, who were headrights of Richard BENNETT (later Governor of Virginia) to settle on his 2,000 acres of land at "Bennett's Welcome" on the Nansemond River in Virginia.
Robert apparently brought 4 servants with him and was on that account entitled to 200 acres which he selected in what is now Elizabeth City County, Virginia.  He was a Puritan and his house was used for church meetings until a convenient church could be built-- about 1640 (VA Mag of Hist and Biog.  Vol. 1 pg 327).  As a result of the unsatisfactory government of the colony and incessant Indian outbreaks, they removed to a city near Annapolis, Maryland, then called Providence, Maryland.  Robert died before 1646.
Robert is listed as a Master who purchased one Peter RIGGLESWORTH, who arrived in Virginia in April of 1637 from London on the ship, "Tristam and Jane."  (Ship Passenger Lists -- the South      (1538 -1825)  by Carl BOYER.
