Administrative historyThe authority of the North Riding Justices did not run unchallenged throughout the Riding, and the records in this series are largely concerned with their claims to jurisdiction over areas claiming exemption at different times. These were Boroughs or Liberties created either by definite grants or by prescriptive right.
