    ” The main aim of this calendar has been to collect the biographical details of each deponent, as given in the preliminary paragraph before each deposition. Details of whether he or she put a signature or mark have been noted as an indication of literacy. The subject of the case and the parties involved have been given[…]The depositions are made in answer to a series of articles or questions which are not given in the Deposition Book. For the most part these have to be deduced from the answers given, though it is probable that a few will survive among the series of Miscellaneous Court Papers (Ep/I/15). The proceedings of the cases are recorded in the Instance Act Books (Ep/I/10), but the information there is normally confined to the formal process and it is often difficult to discover the final outcome. The judges final decision (sentence) occasionally survives among the Miscellaneous Court Papers. The dates given for each group of depositions is usually derived from those given at the end of the statements. They were read over before one of the officials and this fact, with the date, was frequently noted in the Deposition Book. Sometimes a single series of statements will have been taken on two or more dates; sometimes there will be no indication of date.”
