Acomb was a township within the wapentake of Ainsty, two miles to the west of York (Acomb is now included within the boundaries of the city). The manorial court met in three capacities – the Court Baron for freehoders, the Court Customary for Copyholders, and the Court Leet, which was concerned with keeping the peace in the manor. The court rolls in this volume cover the period 1544–1760. Included alongside the court rolls are leases, surrenders, call rolls, lists of presentments and pains bringing together documents held in York City Archives, The Borthwick Institute for Historical Research, and private collections.
