Topic: Justiciar


  
  Lord Chief Justice - LoveToKnow 1911
The justiciar continued to be the chief officer of state, next to the king, until the fall of Hubert de Burgh (in the reign of King John), described by Stubbs as the last of the great justiciars.
The chancellor took the place of the justiciar in council, the treasurer in the exchequer, while the two offshoots from the curia regis, the common pleas and the exchequer, received chiefs of their own.
The justiciar may, therefore, be said to have become from a political a purely judicial officer.

  Justiciar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The chief justiciar (latterly known simply as the justiciar) was a rough equivalent to that of the modern Prime Minister: the monarch's chief minister.
The last great justiciar, Hubert de Burgh, was removed from office in 1231, and the Lord Chancellor soon took the position formerly occupied by the justiciar as second to the king in dignity, as well as in power and influence.
In Scotland, the title of 'justiciar' was historically borne by two high officials, one having his jurisdiction to the north, the other to the south, of the River Forth.

At the height of his power and influence the justiciar was the king's chief political and judicial officer, superintending the administrative machinery and acting as regent in the king's absence abroad.
He was also a feudal lord or bishop; and the study of the careers of the chief justiciars, as soldiers and politicians, judges and financiers, throws light on the workings of feudal society and on the technical administrative means by which royal power was effectively exercised.

Chief justiciar of England in the reign of John Lackland and Henry III, entered the royal service in the reign of Richard the Lionheart.

 Hubert Walter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hubert Walter (died July 13, 1205), chief justiciar of England and archbishop of Canterbury, was a relative of Ranulf de Glanvill, the great justiciar of Henry II, and rose under the eye of his kinsman to an important position in the Curia Regis.
This was the old tax, the Danegeld, in a new and heavier form and there was great difficulty in levying it.
To make it easier, the justiciar ordered the assessment to be made by a sworn jury in every hundred, and one may reasonably conjecture that these jurors were also elected.

 Topics: medieval Irish plea rolls – an introduction
Central justice was administered in the king’s name by the justiciar’s court (which later became the King’s Bench), the Common Bench and by justices itinerant sent out from time to time to different areas of the country, and it is with the records produced by these central courts that this article is concerned.
Pleas are recorded as being heard before the justiciar, but from the 1280s he had a professionally qualified judge assisting him, and a second judge was appointed on a regular basis from 1324 onwards.
In the case of the justiciar’s court, this clerk was responsible for keeping the rolls, writs, indictments, records and bills of the court, but the rolls are the only series of records which survived into modern times.

When the king went on crusade in 1190, William was appointed joint justiciar, and within the same year he had ousted the other justiciar and been appointed papal legate, thus becoming the acting head in England of both state and church.
His strong administration was very unpopular, and in 1191 a series of disputes led to a rebellion by the king’s brother John and the barons.
A settlement was reached, but shortly thereafter the justiciar’s high-handed arrest of Geoffrey, archbishop of York, provoked another uprising, and William was deposed from office.
