    I have been researching an old civil court case from 1975 in the state of Victoria and it talks about how the action has been settled. I would really like to know what Bond No. 267 means as the writing says...

    "Take Notice that this action has been settled and we, the undersigned solicitors for the plaintiff and the defendants respectfully hereby authorise and consent to the Bond no. 267 to the Prothonotary being discharged"

    Hi Jordi,

    The "Bond No. 267" refers to a particular bond which has been handed up to the principal clerk of the court (the Prothonotary) to hold. Essentially, it means that the defendants agree for this security (i.e. the bond) to be released. The security would temporarily be handed to the court clerk by one of the parties during proceedings to mind while the matter is being disputed, and released upon resolution.

    Hope this helps.
