Court Rolls of the Manor Of Acomb Vol. 2

edited by Harold Richardson (1978)


Record Series 137This volume is a continuation of Court Rolls of the Manor Of Acomb Vol. 1, published in the Record Series in 1969. This volume contains calendars of court rolls which includes material supplementary to the period included in the first volume, as well as filling gaps in the remaining series after 1761.

The fresh sources include a few additional documents still in private hands, but which have been calendared in typescript for York City Library, and an important group of rolls ranging in date from 1594 to 1759, discovered at the Castle Museum and transferred to the City archives in 1971 (Acc. 152). Just as work on these was approaching completion, a further series of Court Books was discovered by Messrs Harland, Solicitors and also deposited with the archives (Acc. 197). From these books entries for 1798-1800 are included in this volume.

Indices of persons and places, field and minor names, subjects and occupations are included.
