The series comprises 1 handwritten rent book - consisting of 174 folios - which evidences the actions undertaken by the board to realise the body's obligations under The Disafforesting (Commoners) Allotment Act, 1866. In this case, the ongoing management of Common lands via the collection of rental monies.
Each folio furnishes the following information: the name of the property, the acreage, the annual rents payable, the date payable, the lease date, the tenant's name, the tenant's address as well as an account of rental monies received from the tenant.
The rent book includes a number of pasted enclosures which are attached to its fly cover, namely: 3 newspaper cuttings concerning the public auction of common lands on 12 Feb 1921, the 17 Aug 1925 and the 12 Nov 1932; and a handwritten enclosure entitled 'Valuation (from Assessment Board) May 1929' which details the acreage and value of a number of mountainous parcels of land held by the board.
In addition, there are 8 loose enclosures of handwritten and typed correspondence relating to the settlement of outstanding ground and gate rentals due from leasees.
