District Court Gerolzhofen
The Gerolzhofen Regional Court was an older Bavarian regional court that existed from 1804 to 1879 and was based in Gerolzhofen in what is now the Schweinfurt 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 .
Gerolzhofen had been the seat of a prince-bishop's bailiff since 1492 . After secularization , the regional court of Gerolzhofen was established in 1804 as part of the administrative restructuring of Bavaria . 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 . The Gerolzhofen District Office was formed in 1862 through the merger of the Gerolzhofen and Wiesentheid regional courts . This was enlarged in 1872 by some communities from the disbanded Volkach district office . With the introduction of the Courts Constitution Act on October 1, 1879, a district court was established in Gerolzhofen , the district of which was formed from the regional court district.
