- Description: Quarter Sessions were formally established in Oswestry by the charter of James I (see A21), which empowered the Mayor, the Recorder and the Coroner to be Justices of the Peace. A petition under section 103 of the Municipal Corporations Act 1835 (5 & 6 William IV c.76), for the continuance of the separate Court of Quarter Sessions, failed, but the Court was restored in 1842 after a further petition. The Borough lost its separate Commission of the Peace in 1951, following the Justices of the Peace Act 1949 (12, 13 & 14 Geo. VI c.101).
