Hello there and…

Hello there and welcome! I’m Robert Bennett, Project Archivist for Devon Quarter Sessions Records, and this is the official project blog for the ‘Right to Remain Silent’ Quarter Sessions cataloguing project. This project, generously funded by the Pilgrim Trust as part of the National Cataloguing Grants Scheme, aims to catalogue the Quarter Sessions records for Devon from 1734-1804.

As project archivist, I will be making regular updates about the progress of the project, items of interest and ways in which the public can get involved. Along the way I’ll be giving you something of a glimpse into the world of a cataloguing archivist, and explaining the history and world which underlay the records being catalogued. As you can imagine, this is an extremely exciting project to be involved with, and I hope you’ll join me on this archival adventure!
