The Tholsell Court was established for the settlement of small debts, with the [Lord] Mayor and Sheriffs of Dublin presiding. The surviving records, held in Dublin City Library & Archive, range from the early 17th to the mid-18th century, and are in secretary hand. This transcript by Bridget McCormack makes these records accessible, while the introduction by Toby Barnard contextualises the records.
