Bundle of Estreats

Scope and Content

Each estreat contains extracts from the court roll recording amercements imposed at a single session of the court, with an order from the steward to the bailiff to levy the fines. The majority of amercements are for failure to appear at court or to perform jury service, but in 1867 seven suitors were fined for not scouring their portions of a new drain or watercourse running through their land (EGR2/2/3/5/5).
