COMMON LAW COURTS ACT 1796

Received Royal Assent: 15 July 1796
Promulgated: 12 September 1796
Commenced: 12 September 1796
AN ACT
for the better Regulation of the Court of Common Law.
Island divided into Districts, etc

Whereas
the present Mode of holding the Court of Common Law for the whole
Island, at one particular Time and Place, hath been found to be very
inconvenient to the Public. And it is thought expedient that the Island should be
divided into two Districts for the Purpose of holding a Court of Common Law
within each District; and in order to make such Division the more commodious
and effectual for the Purpose thereof, it is also thought expedient that the
present Division of the Parishes of the said Island into Sheadings should in Part
be altered.
1 Glanfaba Sheading

That from and after the Promulgation of this Act, the Parishes of Patrick,
German, and Marown, shall be, and they are hereby constituted, the Sheading
of GLANFABA, and shall be so reputed, deemed, and taken to all Intents and
Purposes whatsoever.1

2 Garff Sheading

And that from and after the Promulgation of this Act, the Parishes of Maughold
and Lonan shall be, and the same are hereby constituted the GARFF Sheading,
and shall be so reputed, deemed, and taken to all Intents and Purposes
whatsoever.2

3 Middle Sheading

And that from and after the Promulgation of this Act, the Parishes of Conchan,
Braddan, and Santan, shall be, and the same are hereby constituted, the
MIDDLE Sheading, and shall be so reputed, deemed, and taken to all Intents
and Purposes whatsoever.
