Royds Manor Court Rolls


The Court Rolls for the Manor of Royds Hall have been taken from handwritten transcriptions done in the late 19th/early 20th century and form part of the Preston Papers. These are in the Bradford Office of the West Yorkshire Archives under reference PRE/1/3. The current whereabouts of the originals are unknown.

We have transcribed them as they were copied out. We do not understand the use of brackets but have included them in case we work it out! Remember this is transcript of a transcript , so treat the information with a bit of caution - but as the original is probably lost we think it is worth sharing these unique documents.
