Hustings Courts, named after similar courts in England, were a system of courts unique

to eighteenth and nineteenth century Virginia. They administered to independent cities,

serving as the equivalent of county courts, adjudicating matters of lands and chattels,

debts, and contracts. See the Library of Virginia document
