Ashford Manor Court Rolls 1734 to 1925  - Introduction
These webpages are designed to be viewed with the screen resolution set at 800 x 600 and text size at normal. HOW TO

Ashford Manor Court Baron was held regularly, and from 1734 to 1925 the proceedings of the Court were first written on parchment, the sheets being made into rolls until 1814 and then into books. These provide a great wealth of information of the owners and occupiers of the land, and family relationships. An idea of the change in the economic standing of tenants can often be learnt, since the mortgage of lands had to be declared in the Court.
   Extracts from these Rolls made by Arthur Ruderman can be viewed below.

Eventually an index of names and places mentioned in the extracts will be constructed.
