The Historical Reasearch Group of Sittingbourne and the Sittingbourne Heritage Museum present a talk with Jean Stirk. The Manorial Court came into being following the Norman Conquest. It required the Lord of the Manor to provide a Court for his tenants and was the lowest form of court in the Country. The Lord of the Manor held jurisdiction and would preside over the hearings, supported by his Chairman and a record would be written in the Manorial Rolls. Entrance £3 to non-members, £1 to members (unless pre-paid). Proof of membership required.
