Court of Pleas and Quarter Session,

Cumberland County, North Carolina


(Abstracted by the Cumberland County Bicentennial Commission)

        The Courts of Pleas and Quarter Sessions served the function of both County Commission and District Courts from colonial times until the ratification of North Carolina’s reconstruction constitution in 1868.
        The courts met quarterly, with a minimum of three Justices of the Peace presiding. In addition to hearing minor criminal and civil cases, the courts proved and recorded deeds and probated estates. The Courts, in conjunction with the governor, appointed all county officials, including coroners, tax collectors, constables and road overseers. The sheriff, for example, was appointed by the governor from a list of three nominated by the Court.
        In its administrative role, the Court appointed juries to layout and maintain roads; licensed and set rates for taverns, public houses, mills, ferries and toll bridges; recorded livestock brands; and set tax rates.
        Between sessions of courts, the justices could act individually as a magistrate, performing marriages, and hearing minor matters.
        The Court minutes survive nearly intact with only a few gaps, the most notable from October 1765, through October 1771. Interestingly, a Munroe may account for this deficiently. In his claim with the British Crown for compensation of his losses during the American Revolution, Tory James Munro reported, "I seized the records of the county in order to strengthen the influence of the government…. I had all of the records mentioned privately buried underground in the woods along with my own bonds, books and most valuable papers, with strict directions not to touch them until I should return. Consequently they were suffered to remain in that situation so long that when they were taken up, many of the books were quite destroyed and almost all my own papers rendered useless." (Patterson, page 13)
