COURT OF STAR CHAMBER.—The relation between the king's council sitting as a judicial body and the Court of Star Chamber set up by the act of 3 Henry VII., c. i, is matter of controversy. The records of this court are nearly all of later date than this act. They consist of Bills, Answers, Depositions and similar documents, with a very few Decrees and Orders. The Record Office has published a descriptive list (No. XIII.) of a portion of these records; for specimens see Selden Society, Select Cases in the Star Chamber, 1477–1509, edited by I. S. Leadam.
