Manorial Records of Nampity & Pettigrew - Lady Day (25th March) 1748

Transcribed from LDS film 1471925 images 560-568. There images are in two parts: firstly a set of accounts and secondly a review of the ages of the lessees and the 'lives'. I have added an extra column to the accounts to include this information.

Note: In the book "My ancestors were manorial tenants” by Peter B Park, published by the Soc of Genealogists in London, Jay Venables found that the definition of HERIOT (or other spellings) is “payment in kind to the lord on the death of a tenant; traditionally ‘the best beast.’ Sometimes commuted to a cash payment.” 

Jay has also found the following definition in the Cumbria FHS magazine:

“HERIOT – the obligation, with Saxon roots, of a heir to return to the lord the military equipment of a deceased tenant, on the premise that it was originally provided by the lord. Depending on status, the apparel could include horse, harness, armour and weapons. This obligation originally applied to freemen and villeins but in later times tended to be related to copyhold tenures only. After the Conquest, the custom was superseded by the gift of the deceased’s best beast, and still later, it was commuted to a cash payment to the lord – another tax upon admission of the heir!"

At a court held the sixth day of May 1748 for ye Mannr. of Petigrew & Nampity by Jno. Enys Esq. Lord of the said Mannr. then and there present at the house of Benjamin Harris Innkeeper within the said Mannour for the receipt of Rents due to the said John Enys at Lady Day 1748.
