JUDGES AND OTHER LEGAL DIGNITARIES OF
IRELAND.

The earlier portions of these lists have been compiled from the Liher
Munerum Puhlicorum Hibernice, a work in two immense volumes, imperial
folio, which was completed by the late Mr. Rowley Lascelles, from the
compilations of Mr. Lodge, formerly Deputy Keeper of the Rolls and
Keeper of the State Papers in Ireland, and printed by order of the
House of Commons. It has never been published. A. few copies only
were issued to high personages in the state, and to certain public offices,
as records. A copy is in the British Museum, and may be seen there.
There is no index to the book, but a separit^ index has been prepared
and embodied in the 9th Report of the Record Offi:;e, Ireland (1877).
Smyth's Chronicle of Irish Law Officers, a very useful little work,
published in 18:^9, has also been consulted.

The Irish Law Courts were modelled on those of England, the origin
of which is shortly given at pp. 345-352, ante.

The embarrassed condition of many of the Irish landowners led to
the establishment first of an Incumbered Estates Court and afterwards
of a Landed Estates Court.

The Irish Supreme Court of Judicature is formed by a con-
solidation of the old Irish Courts of Chancery, Queen's Bench,
Common Pleas, Exchequer, Probate, and Matrimonial Causes, and the
Lauded Estates Court, with a provision for the inclusion of the Court
of Admiralty on the next vacancy in the judgeship thereof. It was
established by the Supreme Court of Judicature (Ireland) Act, 1877,
(40 & 41 Vict. c. 57), whereby a " Supreme Court of Judicature in
Ireland" was established, to consist of two permanent divisions.

1. Her Majesty's High Court of Justice in Ireland.

2. Her Majesty's Court of Appeal in Ireland.



THE BOOK OF DIGNITIES. 573



1. HER MAJESTYS HIGH COURT OF JUSTICE IN IRELAND.
President, the Lord Chancellor of Ireland for the time being ; in hia
absence the L.C.J, of Ireland for the time being.

This Court originally consisted of five divisions : —

1. The Chancery Division, consisting of the Lord Chancellor

(President), the Master of the Rolls, the Vice Chancellor, and
the Judges of the Landed Estates Court, who were to be called
the Land Judges of the Chancery Division.

2. The Queen's Bench Division, consisting of the L.C.J, of

Ireland (President), and the other Judges of the old Court of
Queen's Bench, in all four Judges.

3. The Common Pleas Division, consisting of the L.C.J, of the

Common Pleas (President) and the other Judges of the old
Court of Common Pleas, in all three judges.

4. The Exchequer Division, consisting of the L.C. B. of the

Exchequer (President) and the other Judges of the old Court
of Exchequer, in all (after the next vacancy) three Judges.

5. The Probate and Matrimonial Division, consisting of the

Judge of the Courts of Probate and for Matrimonial Causes.
Upon the Admiralty jurisdiction falling into the Supreme
Court it was to be exercised by the Judge of this division,
which was thenceforward to be called the Probate, Matri-
monial, and Admiralty Division.
The titles of Lord Chancellor, Lord Chief Justice of Ireland, Master
of the Rolls, L.C J. of the Common Pleas, and L.C.B. of the Exchequer
wei-e to be retained, but all other future judges were to be styled '' Judges
of Her Majesty's High Court of Justice in Ireland."

By the Supreme Court of Judicature (Ireland) Act, 1887, (50 & 51
Vict. cap. 6), power was given on the next vacancies to abolish the offices
of L.C.J, of the Common Pleas and L.C.B. of the Exchequer, to fill up
the vacancies with ordinary puisne judges, and to " direct the amalga-
mation and fusion " of the Common Pleas and Exchequer Divisions
with the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court. This power has
been acted on as regards the Common Pleas Division, which by Order
in Council (Ireland) dated July 6, 1887, was abolished as from Oct. 20,
1887.

1. Eive ex officio Judges, viz., the Lord Chancellor of Ireland, the

the Supreme Court of Judicature (Ireland) Act, 1887 (50 & 51
Vict., cap. 6), power was given to abolish the last two offices ;
vide supra.

2. Two ordinary Judges to be from time to time appointed. The
