District Court Bischofsheim

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The district court of Bischofsheim was a Bavarian district court of the older order that existed from 1804 to 1879 and was based in Bischofsheim in today's Rhön-Grabfeld district . In the Kingdom of Bavaria , the regional courts were judicial and administrative authorities, which were replaced in administrative matters by the district offices in 1862 and in legal matters by the local courts in 1879 .


In 1804, in the course of the administrative restructuring of Bavaria, the district court of Bischofsheim was established. From 1806 to 1814 it was a regional court in the Grand Duchy of Würzburg . This came in 1817 to the newly founded Untermainkreis , the forerunner of the later administrative district of Lower Franconia .

On the occasion of the introduction of the Courts Constitution Act on October 1, 1879, the District Court of Bischofsheim was formed, the district of which was identical to the previous District Court district of Bischofsheim and the places Bischofsheim in der Rhön, Burgwallbach , Frankenheim , Ginolfs , Haselbach in der Rhön , Langenleiten , Oberelsbach , Oberweißbrunn , Sandberg , Schmalwasser , Schönau an der Brend , Sondernau , Unterelsbach , Unterweißbrunn , Waldberg , Wegfurt and Weisbach included.
