ActivitySince the 12th century, sheriffs have represented the Crown as judicial officers and administrators and were important units of government. From the mid 18th century, the powers and responsibilities of sheriffdoms were changed and extended, with sheriff deputes and their assistants, sheriff substitutes, and sheriff clerks becoming responsible for a wide range of administrative duties. These included accounting for Crown duties and rogue money funds, calling jurors, organising parliamentary elections, managing court houses and toll booths.
