The High Sheriff is the oldest secular office under the Crown.

The High Sheriff changes every March. The shrievalty of Caernarvonshireshire, together with that of Anglesey and Merionethshire, was abolished in 1974 when the county and shrievalty of Gwynedd was created.

Famous quotes containing the words high and/or sheriff:

    The high wore away, the chromed skeleton corroding hourly, flesh growing solid, the drug-flesh replaced with the meat of his life. He couldn’t think. He liked that very much, to be conscious and unable to think.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)

    The man’s an M.D., like you. He’s entitled to his opinion. Or do you want me to charge him with confusing a country doctor?
    —Robert M. Fresco. Jack Arnold. Sheriff Jack Andrews (Nestor Paiva)
