Wakefield Manor Court Rolls - Scammonden Valley Land Abstracts 1433 to 1436

The Scammonden Valley land information has mainly been extracted from the Wakefield Court Roll books, which run from 1274 to 1790.

I have also trawled through a large amount of the original 'Court Rolls' based at the YAS and other archive places, which has revelaed some interesting points!!!!

Other sources of information has come from the Broadbent family collection.

As previously noted, divisions of land may lie within the borders of Slaithwaite, Stainland and Barkisland parishes and some land information or land cases i may have missed or dont know about!!!

Any further information please let me know so i can update the database!!!
