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.
