Historical Massachusetts Cases

We've added two old titles to our Massachusetts Cases page:

  • Thacher's Criminal Cases: Reports of Criminal Cases Tried in the Municipal Court of the City of Boston before Peter Oxenbridge Thacher, Judge of that Court from 1823-1843. 
  • Quincy's Reports: Reports of Cases Argued and Adjudged in the Superior Court of Judicature of the Province of Massachusetts Bay Between 1761 and 1772. By Josiah Quincy, Junior. Printed From His Original Manuscripts In The Possession Of His Son, Josiah Quincy, And Edited By His Great-Grandson, Samuel M. Quincy. With an Appendix Upon the Writs of Assistance.

There are also many interesting old documents on our Mass. Historical Legal Documents page, including the Mayflower Compact, the Body of Liberties, the law that outlawed Christmas, and more.
