The catalogue is divided into three sections:-
(1) LONDON: documents relating mainly to Gresse Street, Stephen Street, Percy Street and Tottenham Court Road, St Pancras, E/GOR/1-174
(2) ISLE OF WIGHT: documents relating to East Cowes Castle Estate and other properties at Whippingham and East Cowes, E/GOR/175-243
(3) IRELAND: documents relating mainly to Oatlands and Roxborough, Co. Limerick, E/GOR/244-263
Each of these sections is further divided into:
(i) Marriage settlements, probates, and other documents listed by person, which cannot be related to a specific property
(ii) Documents listed by property
Except in listing the original numbered series (see E/GOR/59-174) sub-numbering has only been used where an item was originally enclosed inside another item.
E/GOR/59-174 form an original numbered series
The series contains a few conveyances but consists mainly of licences to demise granted by the Lord of the Manor of Tottenham to a trustee under the will of John Jones decd., leases made by the trustees under the same will, and assignments of leases. The properties were held in trust for his daughter, Elizabeth Mary, wife of George Tudor (who was also one of the trustees) and later wife of John Prendergast Viscount Gort.
Each group of deeds relating to a property has an original number (marked in red ink on some of the documents) making it a part of an original series consecutively numbered. Within this number series the series is ordered by street and then by street number, although occasionally a document relates to different properties in different streets.
Many of the documents are not numbered but were found with numbered documents relating to the same properties. This particularly applies to the licences.
