573; of. De Silveira v. Texeira, Morley, Digest, i, 349. 4 Keith, Conet. Hi8t. of Fir8t Briti8h Empire, pp. 127-31. Sec. 3] THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS as the island in January 1669. In accordance with instructions from the Company he established the executive government under a deputy governor and council, but the current belief that he enacted codes for the civil and military administration of the island rests on a misunderstanding.

Criminal jurisdiction was exercised monthly in general sessions, juries were used for major offences, but minor infractions against religion and morals were punished without jury trial.
