Excerpt from Select Cases in the Court of Requests: A. D. 1497-1569

The books Of the court testify to its activity from the eighth year of Henry VII.3 To that sovereign it undoubtedly owes its constitution as a definite tribunal, its judges being thenceforth nominated. Even then, however, they were no more than a Standing committee in lieu of the chance attendants at the board Of the King's Council.4 But this comparative permanence ensured the growth of curial traditions and continuity Of practice. These were developed and maintained by the legal assessors, who, at first forming but a numerically unimportant portion Of the bench, succeeded eventually in absorbing the whole of its active jurisdiction.
