Its principal functions were the trial of civil actions in contract and tort and the exercise of supervisory powers over inferior courts. By the Judicature Acts 1873–75 its jurisdiction was transferred to the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court. When the sovereign was a king, it was known as the Court of King's Bench.
