Third, the palace court, created by letters patent in 161z and renewed in 1665 with jurisdiction over all personal matters arising between parties within 12 m. of White-hall (the jurisdiction of the Marshalsea court, the City of London, and Westminster Hall being excepted). It differed from the Marshalsea court in that it had no jurisdiction over the sovereign's household nor were its suitors necessarily of the household. The privilege of practising before the palace court was limited to four counsel. It was abolished in 1849. The lord steward or his deputies formerly administered the oaths to the members of the House of Commons. In certain cases (messages from the sovereign under the sign-manual) " the lords with white staves" are the proper persons to bear communications between the sovereign and the houses of parliament.
