VCP35x
1822-1846

Louisiana. Parish Court (Orleans Parish).
Docket books and indexes, 1813-1846
9 v.


Manuscript volumes divided into subseries as follows: general dockets (and indexes) and "special" dockets.

The general dockets are arranged in numerical order by docket number. Each page is divided into rectangular sections so that one docket entry appears in each section. At the head of each entry is the docket number, names of the plaintiff(s) and defendant(s) in the duit, date of initial filing, the name(s) of the attorney(s) representing the parties to the suit, and in some instances a brief note as to the type of suit. Beneath the heading is a dated list of the actions taken in the suit (e.g., petitions, answers, orders, documents filed, copies made, record withdrawn, judgments, etc.), along with the court costs incurred for each action.

The general dockets can be especially useful when an original suit record is missing. In such cases the dates shown in the docket entry can be used to access the minute books where a more detailed record of the individual actions may be recorded. The docket books are also useful in finding reference to suits represented by specific attorneys and in finding reference to suits of a particular type.

There are plaintiffs' indexes to the general dockets for the period 1835-1846. Also available is a partial index (letters A-D only) for the period 1813-ca. 1832 (this index may have been prepared at a later date from the suit records thenselves rather than in conjunction with creation of the individual docket entries themselves).

There are no general docket books for the periods 1813-7/17/1822 and 3/14/1826-10/10/1835.

The "special" dockets include the following:

Judgment docket, 1813-1827.
Appeals docket, 1823-1835.
Insolvents' docket, 1813-1819.
