Court Rolls
Up

 

Collected here are just the Chobham entries covering Edward III's reign - 1327 to 1348.  I am grateful to the Surrey Records Society which translated the court rolls from the Latin and published them.  The paragraph numbers refer to the entries in the Society's publications.   These publications can be examined in full in the Surrey History Centre.

This is a fairly long page; you may prefer to use your browser's edit/find feature to find what you want.  But beware, the spelling used is the original spelling and hence searching using today's spelling are unlikely to be successful.

A word of explanation about the entries.  The Abbey collected revenue by collecting fees (fines) for each recorded change and the best animal (heriot) whenever someone died and the tenancy passed to another.   The Chertsey court covered only those aspects relating to the economic affairs of the manor; the inheritance of land, the granting of leases, the regulation of ploughing, encroachments on the common and highway, and the control of common grazing.  Chertsey Abbey was effectively the lord of the manor and hence the court was held at Chertsey and was recorded in the court rolls (literally rolls of parchment).   These have come down to us today in the form of the Chertsey Cartulary - a fascinating insight into the lives of people in the 14th century.  

But not everything is recorded here since there was another court, the Church Court which covered church attendance, marriages and the payment of tithes.  Once Chobham became a parish in the 13th century, this court was held locally.
