Description Part of the series: CS228-239 Unextracted processes, 1st arrangement 1619-1868

An extracted process is a civil case which proceeded to a final judgment (decree), after which the pursuer sought enforcement by taking out diligence. An unextracted process might also have proceeded to a decree, but often the pursuer abandoned the action, or a settlement was reached by other means, eg arbitration.

Until about 1860 the Clerks of Session retained the Unextracted processes in their own offices. During the 1860s and early 1870s these were transmitted to the custody of the Lord Clerk Register and arranged by clerks especially employed for that purpose under James Law and James Irvine, Superintendants of the Arrangement of the Unextracted processes.

Dates given are those of the commencement of the processes. Productions in processes may be of earlier date.
Level Series
Finding aids The original volumes of the clerks' arrangements are available in the West Search Room, where a card index is also available.
