West Derby Manor court Rolls.

The Society tendered for this project which was linked to the restoration of the West Derby Manor Court house by Liverpool City Council.  A selection of the rolls, which  date from the 15th to the 19th century, were selected for transcription and translation with the aim of illustrating the workings of the court to visitors.

The completed work was passed to Liverpool City Council.  It has not been published but it can be viewed in the Local History Library (Special Collections)   

This book has now been published under the title ‘Life, Love and Death in North East Lancashire 1510 to 1537’ .  Copies available from the Society.

The recent volume of the Historic Society's Transactions has a very positive review of our Whalley Act Book Chetham volume. Selected highlights: -

'this important publication', 'the editors have presented the volume well', 'the book will be of considerable value to students of the period...' 'it is a must for all dedicated local historians and should adorn the bookshelves of family historians'.
