Cracking the code: how to read old handwriting, session 4 of 4: Manorial records

Monday 22 November 11.00 am-12 noon

Learn how to read a range of old handwritten documents in our new course of four sessions.

We will look at a selection of typical formats of a document ranging from the 16th to 19th century, learning the common ways of writing particular letters, abbreviations and phrasing.

We encourage everyone to participate and take a turn reading parts of the documents – however there is no obligation to do so.

Each session will focus on a particular group of records. This session will investigate manorial records, documents that may reveal where our ancestors lived and farmed.

Previous knowledge/experience required: none necessary, as the session is aimed at the beginner. All the documents we look at in these sessions will be in English.

Venue: Hampshire Record Office, Winchester. Please note that if circumstances change, the session will be hosted on Zoom

Advance booking required.

£8.50 per person per session, or £7.50 if booked by 10th September.
