Legal records

Scope and Content

This class consists mainly of title deeds, conveyances and leases, and other material relating to the property held by Rylands and Sons, such as insurance policies, claims for war damage, and agreements with the council concerning lighting and decoration. Other legal records include details of trademarks, agreements and licences.


Where possible, the relevant page number in the deed index (RYL/1/5/1) is given, either for a bundle or individual documents. However, some of the deeds do not appear to be listed at all, and the archive contains only a minority of the documents mentioned in the index.
