      Subject: FFHS-MEMBERS Dorset Manorial Documents

      The Dorset section of the Manorial Documents Register www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/mdr/  is now online.

      As well as the register there is also an online education pack. This is pitched at key stage 3 students and contains assorted resources for teachers – we are particularly pleased to have included links to Maths and IT as well as Humanities. The pack can be downloaded as a series of Pdf files from:

      Additionally the Dorset Record Society has produced a guide to manorial documents for local and family historians. It is focused on C.17th –C.19th records in English and includes a history of the development of the court baron and court leet as well as explanations of document types with examples and transcriptions. A real bargain at £6 available from:
