Surrey Feet of Fines


What are Feet of Fines? Feet of Fines were records of fictitious suits at law, instituted in fact to obtain secure transfers of land. Fines survive from very early times to 1834 in the National Archives, Kew. The great value of fines is not just that they are arranged by county so as to facilitate topographical studies but they were often used to break entails, and thus it is quite usual for several members of families involved to be mentioned in each document. Booklets included in the set RS20, RS22, RS24, RS26 & RS28, original price over Twenty Pounds.
