The terrier bundles can contain an eclectic array of documents concerning the properties, including: accounts, bills of quantities, contracts, correspondence, Land Charges Act official searches, legal charges, maps, photographs, schedule of deeds and documents, receipts, sales particulars, site plans, summary sheets, survey reports, and title deeds (abstract of titles, agreements, conveyances, epitome of titles, leases, releases, requisitions on title etc.).
The bundles are still in original order based upon the deed number allocated to them by the West Mercia Constabulary. These numbers are listed in the bundle level descriptions. The quantity of documents within a bundle varies depending on the property, with some containing only a few documents while others fill an entire archive box.
Many documents within the bundles are facsimile copies of the originals. This is of particular importance to the date range, which only incorporates the date the copy was taken rather than the original’s date of creation. Therefore many bundles contain surrogates of older title deeds and correspondence which is not evident from the date range provided.
CJ10/1-51 also contain summary sheets that describe the property, list the date of transfer or sale, the sale price (when known) and purchaser of the property.
