Property Records

Local newspapers since the 18th century provide an important source of information about properties and their ownership. Occasionally, we receive examples of original auction particulars when larger estates were broken up.

However, earlier records are very random in the form of surviving Deeds and Indentures. Many modern-day property owners no longer have access to these historic, artistic and revealing documents because they have been destroyed once key data was computerised by banks and building societies.

Listed Buildings Index: A broad-brush summary for many buildings can be discovered through our "Listed Buildings" page.
