It is thirteen years since the start of the project to revise and to put online the Manorial Documents Register, a source which uniquely unites in one place a particular class of record scattered across the country. This year the latest phase was completed with the addition of records for manors of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. The Register is the official record of manorial documents across England and Wales. The online version is set to replace the paper Register. So far Wales and the pre-1974 counties of Yorkshire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Norfolk, Surrey, Middlesex, Westmorland, Cumberland and Lancashire (north of the Sands) have been covered.
