Jurisdictions in Finland 1800-1900

General

In the maps, the jurisdiction borders in Finland are shown in years 1800, 1820, 1840, 1860, 1880 and 1900. The area of the district court (käräjäkunta / tingslag) is here called district. The tuomiokunta / domsaga, or the area that was given to one judge to rule consisted of one or several districts. Here, it will be called jurisdiction. Until 1868, there was also a larger area laamannikunta / lagsaga, that consisted of several jurisdictions. It is used here to illustrational purposes only: after 1868 the county level (lääni, Sv. län) is used instead.

Why the borders are shown in a map instead of a list or a table? Traditionally, the country consisted of parishes with some underlying areas called chapels, as we talk about congregational entities. In time, some of the chapels became parishes and inside them new chapels were established. Sometimes land was transferred between units, and the borders are on the move in history.

On the other hand, the districts consisted of one ore several "administrational parishes" or even of parts of them. Administrational parishes did not coincide with the congregational ones. When a border change happened between parishes and chapels, there was not necessarily any change in judiciary borders. So the list would be a collections of exceptions and their exceptions, and it would be very long. And what's more, we have no systematic data for border changes for the whole realm.

In map view, the anomalies we know are taken into account, and the area inside one jurisdiction would be part of it no matter the congregational changes inside it. Mind though, that we don't know all anomalies and when they were changed. So if the place of your interests is near the domsaga border, you might want to check the neighbour, too.

Using the maps service

The little map gives an overview of the situation. Clicking the map opens the larger map. You can zoom it by the mouse scroll. Drag the picture and to find your place of interest. The jurisdictions have an abbreviation, which is explained in the right side of the picture. If there are changes between two years, below the map is the explanation of the jurisdictions, districts and the changes in them between those years.

When you find the right jurisdiction, use it as a filter in your search. The name in the abbreviations list is the same as in the filter (in the brackets is respective name in Swedish, which is the form you will find in the documents). The name in the explanation text may vary somewhat. There, the Swedish name is used if it is considerably different than the Finnish one; plain genetives are shown only once (i.e. "Rantasalmen" [tuomiokunta] should be "Rantasalmi" [domsaga] but only the former is used here.

Not all court books are included in the search. The ones from Åland / Ahvenanmaa, Suur-Savo, Sääksmäen ylinen and Sääksmäen alinen jurisdictions were destroyed in the fire of Turku 1827. There could be other minor gaps in the series. The books of the jurisdictions that were ceded to Soviet Union (Jääski, Kurkijoki, Käkisalmi, Ranta, Salmi, Sortavala, Äyräpää and their predecessors) are held in another context and not digitized. The so called "old towns" had the city court (raastuvanoikeus, sv. rådstuvurätten) and their court records are not yet searchable.

The base map is the municipalities border map of 1937. So it will show the municipality (parishes and chapels alike became municipalities after 1868) borders of that year. There will be many names that didn't exist in the year the border map is for. Mind that even if a spatial change is marked in the map, it is not explained in the text. Hopefully we can offer that sometimes in the future, but this kind of research was not in the scope of this project.

Jurisdictions in 1800

Vasa och Uleå lagsaga

By 1800, there were four jurisdictions in the north, all established in 1777:

  • Kemin ja Kajaanin (Kemi och Kajana) (Kemi, Kemijärvi, Pudasjärvi, Hyrynsalmi, Kuusamo, Paltamo and Sotkamo districts). In 1804 Rovaniemi district was separated from Kemi.

  • Pohjanmaan pohjoinen (Österbottens norra) (Oulu (Uleå), Ii (Ijo), Liminka (Limingo), Muhos, Salo, Pyhäjoki and Siikajoki districts)

  • Keski-Pohjanmaan (Österbottens medledels) (Kalajoki, Lohtaja (Lochteå), Kokkola (Gamla Karleby), Kruunupyy (Kronoby), Pietarsaari (Pedersöre), Uusikaarlepyy (Nykarleby) and Vöyri (Vörå) districts)

  • Etelä-Pohjanmaan (Österbottens södra) (Mustasaari (Korsholm), Vähäkyrö (Lillkyro), Isokyrö (Storkyro), Ilmajoki (Ilmola), Laihia (Laihela), Maalahti (Malax), Närpiö (Närpes), Lapua (Lappo), Kuortane and Lapväärti (Lappfjärd) districts)

In 1805 the division was totally turned over, when new jurisdictions Kemi, Kajaani (Kajana), Oulu (Uleå), Salo, Keski-Pohjanmaan ylinen, Keski-Pohjanmaan alinen (Österbottens medledels övre, Österbottens medledels nedre) and Korsholman eteläinen ja pohjoinen (Korsholms södra, Korsholms norra) were established.

The Torneå valley and Lapland (Tornio (Torneå), Enontekiö, Inari (Enare), Utsjoki, Sodankylä and Kittilä) belonged before 1811 to Västerbotten och Ångermanlands jurisdiction under Svea hovrätt, and their renovated court records can be found in Swedish archives. In 1812, Tornio (Torneå) jurisdiction was established.

Åbo och Björneborg lagsaga

The southwestern corner of the duchy was traditionally divided in five jurisdictions, but Ylä-Satakunta was divided in two halves in 1785:

  • Ahvenanmaan (Ålands) (Finström, Föglö, Hammarland, Jomala, Kumlinge, Lemland, Saltvik and Sund districts)

  • Ylä-Satakunnan alinen (Övre Satakunda nedredels) (Loimaa (Loimijoki), Huittinen (Hvittis), Tyrvää (Tyrvis) and Karkku districts)

  • Ylä-Satakunnan ylinen (Övre Satakunda övredels) (Hämeenkyrö (Tavastkyro), Kangasala, Lempäälä, Orivesi, Pirkkala (Birkala) and Ruovesi districts). Vesilahti district was established in 1806 and Ikaalinen (Ikalis) district in 1807. The jurisdiction was divided in 1812, and in the process Ruovesi district was abolished and Orivesi district (in Satakunta jurisdiction) established.

  • Vehmaan ja Ala-Satakunnan (Vemo och Nedre Satakunda) (Eurajoki (Euraåminne), Laitila (Letala), Uusikirkko (Nykyrko), Taivassalo (Töfsala), Vehmaa (Vemo), Ulvila (Ulfsby), Eura and Kokemäki (Kumo) districts). The jurisdiction was split already in 1802.

  • Mynämäen (Virmo) (Korppoo (Korpo), Mynämäki (Virmo), Nauvo (Nagu) ja Rymättylä (Rimito) districts)

  • Maskun (Masko) (Lieto (Lundo), Marttila (St Mårtens), Masku (Masko), Pöytyä (Pöytis) and Raisio (Reso) districts)

Vehmaa and Ala-Satakunta jurisdiction was divided in two in the fall 1802 into Vehmaan tuomiokunta (Vemo domsaga) and Ala-Satakunnan tuomiokunta (Nedre Satakunda domsaga). From the Ylä-Satakunnan ylinen tuomiokunta a new jurisdiction Satakunnan tuomiokunta (Satakunda domsaga) was separated in 1812.

Nylands och Tavastehus lagsaga

The lagsaga was organized anew in 1795/1796 when each of its jurisdictions (Sääksmäki, Raseborg and Piikkiö ja Halikko) were split in two. By 1800 it consisted of following jurisdictions:

  • Piikkiön ja Halikon alinen (Pikis och Haliko nedredels) (Hiittinen (Hitis), Kemiö (Kimito), Parainen (Pargas), Perniö (Bjernö) and Sauvo (Sagu) districts)

Karelska lagsagan

In the northeastern corner of the duchy, Karjalan tuomiokunta was split in 1791 and Pien-Savon tuomiokunta in 1796, and in the process a new jurisdiction Pohjanmaan itäinen tuomiokunta established from Rautalammin tuomiokunta (among others). By 1800, lagsaga consisted of following jurisdictions:

  • Pohjanmaan itäinen (Österbottens östra) (Keuruu, Laukaa and Saarijärvi districts)

  • Rautalammin (Rautalampi) (Rautalampi, Pieksämäki and Viitasaari districts)

  • Pien-Savon ylinen (Lill-Savolax övre) (Kuopio and Iisalmi (Idensalmi) districts). Pielavesi district was separated from Iisalmi district in 1814.

  • Pien-Savon alinen (Lill-Savolax nedre) (Rantasalmi, Joroinen (Jorois), Leppävirta, Kerimäki and Sääminki (Säminge) districts)

When the jurisdiction was split in 1808, Porvoo district was split and Porvoo (Ul), also called Mäntsälä, and Porvoo (Kl) districts were established. In 1811 a new district Nurmijärvi was separated from Helsinki in 1811.

  • Hollolan /Hämeen lääni (Hollola / Tavastehus län) (Hauho, Lammi (Lampis), Padasjoki, Hollola and Asikkala districts)

  • Hollolan / Kymenkartanon lääni (Hollola / Kymmenegårds län) (Hartola (Gustaf Adolfs), Sysmä, Nastola, Orimattila and Iitti (Itis) districts) In 1805 Heinola district was separated from Asikkala (Kl).

Viborgs lagsaga

So called "Old Finland", the areas that were ceded to Russia in 1800th century, belonged to Käkisalmen pohjoisen (Kexholms norra) (Impilahti, Korpiselkä, Ruskeala, Salmi (Salmis), Sortavala and Uukuniemi (Uguniemi) districts), Käkisalmen eteläisen (Kexholms södra (Hiitola, Jaakkima (Jaakkimavaara), Kurkijoki (Kronoborg), Parikkala, Pyhäjärvi, Rautu, Räisälä and Sakkola districts), Viipurin kihlakunnan (Viborgs härads) (Antrea (St Andree), Kivennapa (Kivinebb), Koivisto (Björkö), Muolaa (Mola), Säkkijärvi, Uusikirkko (Nykyrka), Valkjärvi and Viipuri (Viborg) districts), Savonlinnan ja Jääsken (Nyslott och Jääskis) (Joutseno, Jääski (Jääskis) and Ruokolahti districts), Kymin kihlakunnan (Kymmene härads) (Lappee (Lappvesi), Lemi (Klemis), Savitaipale, Kymi (Kymmene), Säkkijärvi, Vehkalahti (Veckelax) and Virolahti (Vederlax) districts) jurisdictions. As they weren't place under any Swedish hovrätt, there are no renovated court records before 1812.

They were re-attached to the rest of Finland in 1812 and formed their own Viborgs lagsaga. In 1816 the jurisdictions were thoroughly reorganized, see 1820 information.
