Content description

The records of the College's estates were originally arranged by estate, each one having a drawer in College Library. These records were catalogued by Noel Blakiston as ECR - Eton College Records - and included most of the earliest deeds relating to the estates, as well as some later leases and a good deal of other material.( Maps were generally removed and dealt with separately). However, from the 19th century onwards, extensive series of leases and drafts which were not part of this system were created, including a number of files relating to land transactions or related estate matters such as chancel responsibility. These are the records listed here, along with title deeds of properties acquired in the 19th and 20th century and held in the Estates Manager's office until transfer to the archives in the 1990s. Some of the lawyers' files relate to more general legal matters.
