    Default Bankruptcy and the London gazette.

    Have just come across an entry in London gazette for Thomas hall in 1857. I am assuming that it is a bankruptcy case, but it is just among a list of people appearing in court, no results. Have googled every which way but can't find the result of the hearing. Any suggestions please.

    Cheers. Ed

    Give us a clue! The name Thomas Hall appears dozens of times in 1857!

    Can't copy the entry
    Challenging stuff.



    Just the edition details would have done eg
    Publication date:
    18 September 1857
    Issue:
    22041
    Page:
    3170

    Details of the court are on the preceding page ie "Court for the Relief of Insolvent Debtors".

    Don't forget the important distinction between insolvent debtors and bankrupts.
    See http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/h...lvent-debtors/

    Thank you for that, Peter, no matter how I tried I could not get to the previous page to see the heading. More research needed. The gazette has fascinating stuff but not exactly user friendly indexing. It seems to me that it's fine if you know what you are looking for but otherwise...

    Cheers Ed

    I saw that Peter but for some reason It didn't work on this tablet and I was too tired to go upstairs to my PC.

    Tablets can be choosy little blighters sometimes. They never ever work properly for me

    Swings and roundabouts ain't it! The tablet is on my lap in my recliner and the pc is upstairs in the spare room. So the tablet is a pain but so are my knees going upstairs. Do you remember "life gets teejus, don't it?"

    Cheers. Ed
