The Office of High Sheriff of Somerset, until 1974 called Sheriff of Somerset, is an ancient shrievalty which has been in existence for over one thousand years.[1]

On 1 April 1974, under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972, the office of Sheriff of Somerset was retitled as High Sheriff of Somerset.[2]

The position of Sheriff was once a powerful one, the holders being responsible for collecting taxes and enforcing law and order in Somerset a county in South West England. In modern times the sheriff has become a ceremonial officer of the Crown, attending or presiding over many public events. Until 1567 the Sheriff of Somerset was also Sheriff of Dorset.[3]

In England, Wales, and Northern Ireland the high sheriff is theoretically the Sovereign's judicial representative in the county, while the Lord Lieutenant is the Sovereign's personal representative.[4] Their jurisdictions, the "shrieval counties", are no longer co-terminous with administrative areas, representing a mix between the ancient counties and more recent local authority areas. The post is unpaid, except for a small court attendance allowance, and the general expenses of the office are borne personally by the holder.[5] Eligibility for nomination and appointment of High Sheriffs is controlled by the Sheriffs Act of 1887.
