1691 Composition Book: Kirk German


See elsewhere for reasons and structure of this manorial record - the numbers and the Ref to 1703 composition book were not in the original but included here for ease of cross referencing - note some references are conjectural.

The following is a slightly modernised transcription - names are as in original though a few other abreviations expanded - the stereotyped format was arranged in two columns the first 'x formerly zz' and the second the lives in being. The entry is here split into its two components. The name under formerly generally refers to 1643 unless a later renewal is noted, the tenant is that of 1691 - note any lives in being must (except for later renewals) have been born by 1643 and thus be older than 48 years old. The given ages would however appear to have been rounded.
