Manor Court Records [volumes], 1678-[1882]

Reference Code: GBR/0269/DCAR/1/1/4/1

Scope and Contents

From the Series:

The HMC defines Manorial Records as: court rolls, surveys, maps, terriers, documents and books of every description relating to boundaries, wastes and customs or courts of a manor.
The Manorial Documents Register [MDR] also usually excludes individual copies of court rolls given to tenants as evidence of title. However, in the Estate Records group in Downing's Archive, surveys, rentals, maps and accounts etc are to be found in their own specific series. This manorial records series consists of court records and items dealing expressly with copyhold tenure. It also includes formal records [not correspondence] re fee farm rents and quit rents.
