The individual entries in this book relate to all those who, between 1845 and 1945 inclusive, held office or rank as follows:_

  • Lord Chancellor
  • Judge of the Superior Courts
  • Attorney-General
  • Solicitor-General
  • Recorder of London
  • Common Serjeant
  • Judge of Mayor's and City of London Court ( or its predecessors)
  • County Court Judge
  • Serjeant-at-Law
  • Queen's Counsel
  • Metropolitan magistrate
It will be appreciated that a subject is often eligible by more than one of these criteria. A natural consequence of this arrange­ ment is that the period under consider­ ation is, in a sense, extended. Some of those still living in 1845, had careers which began in the previous century, and some who had qualified for entry by 1945, remained professionally ac­ tive well beyond that date.
