Arbory - South Side Sales

Following the Act of Settlement , which came into force 1704, all sales, mortgages etc involving property had to be recorded - these were indexed in two groups - North and South Side Sales.

The Reference is the form needed to request the deed - North or South Side, Month (usually May or October) , Year and deed reference within that court.

Deeds (contracts etc) recorded pre 1723 are numbered in a different sequence - as Old Deeds, the sequence number does not reflect the date.A handlist of references to earlier deeds etc. is found before the index to Old Deeds.

Contract = Marriage Contract, Gift is usually a parent giving the land to a child, a settlement is usually an elderly parent passing the land onto the heir.

Note these are transcribed from a copy of a negative photocopy (white on black) in Manx Museum - the copy is not always easy to read and there will be several errors still to be corrected - the full index will be on CD_Rom - items in bold are on CD_Rom.
