To the Manor Born: An Introduction to Manorial Records for Family Historians
Wednesday 22 September 2021, 05:30pm - 06:45pm
Hits : 206

When we talk about manors and manorial courts, we tend to think of a large country estate with the Lord of the Manor presiding over his lands in a despotic, albeit slightly avuncular, way. Whilst there is a certain amount of truth in this ideal, the actual was a lot less romantic and more prosaic. This talk introduces us to the manorial system, how that system worked, the documents it generated and how these records can be used by the local and family historian.

Talk takes place 5.30pm to 6.45pm and is £5. Please book a place online. Once your registration has been received, you will be emailed a unique link and password to attend the talk on Zoom.
