Manor of Croydon, Leet Jury Minute Book

  • AR010
  • Collection
  • 1830-1855

Minute Book of the Leet Jury of the Manor of Croydon. Courts Leet were held annually in April, May or June. The location is given as the Town Hall from 1833 onwards. The majority of the records of courts before 1850 consist simply of the election of the manorial officers and the report All Well; although in 1830; 1833; 1836; 1837; 1843; 1844; 1845 and 1846 presentments are made for encroachments or nuisances. From 1833, the record of each court is signed by the members of the Jury. From 1850 onwards, these signiatures are the only record given of the proceedings at each court: there is no election of manorial officers and the records become generally more scrappy.

The back of the book has been used for various annotations and memoranda, including a list of preparations to be made by the baliff for a Court Day.

Gillett and Johnston: Bell and Tuning Books

Tuning at Gillett and Johnston was undertaken according to the 'five toned system, or 'Simpson principle, developed by Cyril Johnston from the writings of Canon Simpson. This was based on the concept that the chord rung by a bell comprised five distinct notes ('strike note, 'hum, 'nominal, 'third, and 'fifth), which had to be harmonised. After the two early rough notebooks (AR1/1/1-2), the main series of tuning books

(AR1/1/3-19) contain details of the tuning of each bell cast or re-cast by the company, including diameter, weight (as cast and as despatched), note, and vibrations (as cast and as tuned). Dates of entries appear to be those of casting rather than tuning, and entries are therefore not in strict chronological order. These books are all marked on the spine 'C.F.J.[ohnston], although they are completed in different hands. All volumes except AR1/1/1 contain indexes of place names.
