     Scope and Contents 
 The District Superior Court of Kentucky records (dated 1785-1799; 0.15 cubic feet; 2 items) contain information about the court and its proceedings during a period from September 1785 to May 1799.   This collection contains two items. The first item is an execution book containing records from September 1785 to June 1789. This execution book contains entries for cases that the court heard. Typically, each entry contains the following information: dates, names of the parties, the judgment, costs, writs, county, return, order, and sheriff's return. The second item is a record book of court transactions from September 1787 to May 1799. This record book begins with an index of cases (at the beginning of the volume). The index is followed by a section regarding the rules of court. The majority of the volume records the actions taken during cases during periodic court sessions.

     Historical note 
 The District Superior Court of Kentucky appears to have been a court for the County of Kentucky. However, historical reference to a "Superior Court" existing in Kentucky during the time period of 1785 to 1799 has not been found. What historical reference has been found relating to Kentucky's early court system is the following:  Prior to 1792, Kentucky  was part of Virginia, and Virginia had granted only a limited court system to the County of Kentucky. Once statehood was achieved in 1792, Kentucky's first constitution did not create a detailed court system, other than to specify the creation of a Kentucky court of appeals.   Cotton, Jr., V.
