Manorial Records by Denis Stuart Manorial records are an important source of information for the local or family historian, but this is the first, full-length modern manual to offer a structured and comprehensive guide to their use. It explains the nature and Latin vocabulary of manorial court rolls, rentals and extents, accounts and custumals; gives guidance in the translation of transcribed documents; provides more than thirty reproductions of actual manuscript documents in a variety of hands, from the mid-twelfth to the eighteenth century. Includes a glossary of all words normally found in manorial records, plus lists of declensions and conjugations and further palaeographic aids. 120p with illus. (Phllimore 1992)
