Manorial Documents Register online

The Manorial Documents Register (MDR) is the official index to English and Welsh manorial records and provides brief descriptions of documents and details of their locations in public and private hands. 

The National Archives at Kew now provide online access to this resource.

Manorial documents include court rolls, surveys, maps, terriers, documents and books of every description relating to the boundaries, franchises, wastes, customs or courts of a manor. Title deeds are not included in the MDR. 

A number of counties have been revised and made available online via the Discovery database. You can also browse by alphabetical listing. For example: searching for Randall Manor (Kent) in the list will bring back the following results:
