Pocklington Manor Court Call Rolls - 1793 to 1803
Transcribed by Heidi Woodhouse from document DDPY 20/7 in Beverley Treasure House. The Manor Court Call Roll books consists of columns of names of the Pocklington suitors, or, those people who had the duty to attend the manor court (who "owed suit of court", in the old phrase). The people were freeholders, copyholders or "resiants" (residents). These books were very much working documents and former suitors' names were struck through when they died or left the area and the names of new ones were written in. This makes the books quite messy at times to read. The people who owed suit to the court at any one time was between about 150-200. That was the total number of people who should have attended the manor court when it sat, whether they were going to be involved in particular cases or not. The fascinating thing about the call book is that it shows whether each person appeared at each individual court sitting or not, and if they did not appear it may give further information. The suitors' names are listed in columns at the left-hand side of each page, and the rest of each page is made up of very narrow "date columns" each of which has the date of a court sitting at the top. These are not exact dates: the court was usually assumed to sit twice per year and all its sessions were either at "Easter" or "Michaelmas". However, most Pocklington records seem to be Easter only. The columns have been filled in against the name of each suitor, and so provide a record of attendance for each person. This was done by means of a system of symbols, most of which are abbreviations. The officers using the book would have understood it, so no key was provided. Six basic symbols have been identified by a website created by John Lindley, who proposes that the meaning of each is as follows;- "am." amercement (= fine) for non -attendance "ap." appeared at the court, "appsw" probably meant appeared and sworn in, "D." default? "ess." or "essd." essoined "ex." exempt? or excused? "__" exempt? or excused? The meanings of the three most common abbreviations are plain. (being "essoined" meant that you did not attend in person. In the Middle Ages, a suitor could send a small boy in his place: if you knew that a case was being brought against you, it was a handy way of postponing it. But only a number of "essoins" were allowed.) Of the others, "ex." commonly appears after the names of spinsters and I think that it indicates people who were exempted or excused because their presence was not needed. (Spinsters would not have been asked to serve on juries or take up offices, for example.)
