Cornwall Litigation

Litigation is essentially variable. In a survey of litigation arising from one county from Hilary term 1331 to Easter term 1335, displayed in a manner that shows both the number of new cases each term and the total number of continuing cases, the volume of litigation varied substantially but stayed between about 190 and 250 cases pending at any given time. The initial low bars in the graph are probably the result of cases lost by continuances enrolled in prior terms, so that those initial bars probably are not indicative of actual litigation levels.

The table at the left gives the distribution of all enrollments among the various major types of litigation. The designation "land" is indeterminate and simply reproduces the categorization common with short continuances.
