Series Details:


Original bonds filed by constables after elected by municipalities and appointed by the Court of Quarter Sessions and before they may take office. Pre-printed forms show names of constable, surety, and witnesses; date and amount of bond; municipality to which a constable was elected and the term; affidavit; and official seals and signatures. Other papers, such as resignations, oaths, appointments, power of attorney for a surety, etc., may accompany a bond starting in the mid-1930s. Forms are glued or stapled onto blank pages of bound volumes. Note 1: Constable Bonds 1805-1870 are an unbound paper series. Note 2: there appears to be no volume "No. 4"; but dates in "No. 5" continue from "No. 3".
