Researching Manorial Records

Upcoming Talk - October 2022

7.30pm at Harwood Methodist Church
Thursday 27th October 2022

Speaker: David Tilsley

David Tilsley, archivist at Lancashire Archives, will be giving us an overview of manorial records.  These documents are held by many archives and record offices, often within landed family and estate collections.  Documents such as court rolls, accounts, rentals and surveys, can often tell us something of the people who lived in the local district, and the presentation will include some local examples.
