Chris Watts has written to Genbrit as follows:

The record series is HO 47.
The information is incoporated within the on-line catalogue PROCAT.
For example the first thing thrown up by searching for "smith" in "HO 47"
is:
"HO 47/1/8
Report of John Skynner on George Leedham, convicted at the Leicestershire
Summer Assizes in 1783, for a highway robbery, stealing a canvas purse, 5
guineas and 12/-, property of William Biddle, on 19 April 1783. Evidences
supplied by William Biddle, Thomas Price, John Williamson, Bridget Street,
Francis Smith and John Evans. 1784 Feb 24"
Happy searching! Chris Watts
