Courts of record

Courts of First Instance (now the Regional Trial Court), being courts of record, are bound to keep a record of their proceedings, which must appear in writing. According to the definition given in 2 Cyc., 657-658, courts of record are those which are bound to keep a record of their proceedings for a perpetual memorial and testimony thereof. This being so, and applying it to the question under consideration, it cannot be said that the appellants were notified of the order of denying their motion for a new trial, until said order have been reduced to writing and filed in the clerk's office.
