Manorial Records for Family Historians

Manorial Records for Family Historians

Ref: UTP0131

The manorial system, introduced to England and Wales by the Normans, lasted until 1926 and the surviving records can provide wonderful insights into the personal lives of our ancestors. Henry Chandler wrote in 1885 that manorial records ‘enable us to drop down suddenly on an obscure English village five hundred years ago, and almost to see with our own eyes what the inhabitants are doing’. However, it seems that few genealogists understand manorial records and how the manor operated. The aim of this book is to cut through a complex mix of social and legal history to give family historians the knowledge and confidence to start utilising these records. The rewards are immense.
The book also contains many examples of how records from the manors of Rotherfield in East Sussex and Datchurst alias Hildenborough in Kent were used by the author in his own research.
