A presentment is the act of presenting to an authority a formal statement of a matter to be dealt with.[1] It can be a formal presentation of a matter such as a complaint, indictment or bill of exchange. In early-medieval England, juries of presentment would hear inquests in order to establish whether someone should be presented for a crime.[2]

In the Church of England Churchwardens' Presentments are reports to the Bishop relating to parishioners' misdemeanors and other things amiss in the parish.[3]
