5.00 35 years ago is now worth almost 17.00. ;D You are paying less now  ;)

My point exactly...

The paper copies have nearly doubled in price in the last ten years or so. I'd be interested to know what's driving it. Can't be inflation or postal costs.

I started on my family tree almost 35 years ago: copy certificates were 5.00 then.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Finding Property Deeds in High Harrogate

West Yorkshire had a Registry of Deeds from 1704, indexed under the names of the main parties as well as the address.

So they could marry at 12 & 14 (with parental permission) and have children but were not considered old enough to sign legal documents

Same principle applies today.

Under English law, a minor does not have capacity to enter into legally binding agreements other than contracts for necessaries (goods or services deemed necessary for ordinary living).

The age of majority was altered to 18 by the Family Law Reform act 1969.

Durham / Re: what is a husbandsman?

I can only surmise that Harraton Outside was a local description for an area close to Harraton.

Agreed: census returns for Walsall here in the Black Country show the area divided into "Walsall Borough" and "Walsall Foreign" (which sounds a lot more exotic than it is...)

Perhaps the Lloyd George Museum at Llanystumdwy may be able to help?
