Series 505 contains correspondence (mostly incoming letters, including telegrams) of the Attorney General, the Marshal and the island sheriffs; commissions and oaths of office of deputy attorneys general, police constables and deputy sheriffs; reports of inquests and other investigations by coroners, district magistrates, tax assessors and school agents; leases, deeds and mortgages; statements of witnesses, etc. to police; oaths and bonds sworn before police constables; maps of parcels of lands; financial records, including such things as account balance sheets and cash receipts; and a wedding announcement. Records address a variety of issues such as citizen complaints against police, pending cases, employee wages, and government policy toward royalists following the overthrow.
[With regard to Series 510] [t]he earliest volume, dated 1844, contains comments of the Attorney General, sometimes formally titled as opinions, on such things as a complaint by the French consul about the treatment of Catholic clergy and a letter from the Earl of Aberdeen stating the position of the British Government with respect to several issues, including the Charlton land claim. The later volumes contain formal opinions of the Attorney General, issues in response to requests from government officials, including legislators. Opinions are the Attorney General's interpretation of the law relative to issues raised in the requests. There are additional 19th century opinions in the general records (Series 505).
