Nottinghamshire Manorial Records

Nottinghamshire Manorial RecordsNottinghamshire has added the catalogue of their Manorial Records onto the Manorial Documents Register. This means you will be able to search online at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/mdr/ to find out what documents have survived and where they are houses. Manorial records aren’t always where you would expect them to be ie at the county record office. For instance the Nottinghamshire records are held at nearly 50 different locations.
