This is a literal transcription of the first half of Newport Court Book A which is actually a record of the Court of Trials for the entire Colony. In this book you'll find the murder trial of Thomas Cornell of Portsmouth in 1672, a 1676 court martial of several Indians for specific actions against colonists in King Philip's War, as well as many bastardy cases and other interesting matters. Earlier Rhode Island Court Records to 1670 were published in 1920 and 1922 by the Rhode Island Historical Society; this book extends the coverage in print to 1704.
