1691 Composition Book: Santan


See elsewhere for reasons and structure of this manorial record - the numbers were not in the original but included here for ease of cross referencing.

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. Some given ages would however appear to have been rounded.

Many entries had † against them - possibly indicated a death by 1703/4 when next composition book drawn up after Act of Settlement.
