This extract from the court roll of the Manor of Sarratt records the admission of Henry Finch on the death of his father John.  A copy was made from the roll and given to the incoming tenant as evidence of the transaction.  This came to be regarded as a title deed providing the evidence of a tenant’s right to enter his holding and on what terms.
