Oath of jurors.
When the jury are assembled, the
coroner shall appoint one of the number as foreman, and administer to him
an oath or affirmation, in the following form, to-wit:
You, as foreman to this inquest, do solemnly swear (or affirm, as the
case may require), that you will diligently inquire, and true
presentment make, how, and in what manner, and by whom or what, the body
which lies dead, came to its death; and that you will deliver to
me, the coroner of this county, a true inquest thereof, according to
such evidence as shall be given you, and according to the best of your
knowledge and belief; so help you God.
And to the other jurors, one as follows, to-wit:
The same oath which A B, your foreman has just now taken on his part,
you and each of you do solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may
require), to keep on your respective parts; so help you God.
