  • Function / Content
    This series was used to record details of property sales within Council boundaries, presumably to keep information in Council ratebooks up to date. The majority of entries refer to allotments of vacant land purchased for what appears to be the first time.

    Entries in this register record the:

    - number of the property in the rate book (if one had previously been allocated)
    - vendor's name
    - purchaser's name and address
    - description of the property (descriptions used included "land" and "land & house" with street names included when relevant)
    - location of the property (county, parish, section & allotment)
    - date of purchase, and
    - date of receipt of notice of sale.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Entries are made in chronological order.
