The Rättegångsbalken (the judicial section) of the 1734 Law stated that the härad was to build and maintain a court house, härad jail, a härads archive, along with the responsibility for a “häradskista” (a chest used to store judicial documents and tools for example the gavel and official seal.) Many responsibilities changed or were taken from the härad with the creation of municipalities and municipal ordinances in 1862. Other responsibilities followed as the population grew and society changed throughout the end of the 1800’s and into the 1900’s. By 1970 there were a total of 226 härads, of which 6 were skeppslag and 1 bergslag.
