Boxes 1-19 comprise deeds of title to the main Wyndham estates in Somerset, Devon, Wiltshire, Dorset, Cornwall and Hampshire derived from the Sydenham and Wadham families and also by subsequent purchases.
Their arrangement adheres to the order imposed pre. 1838 by W.U.Tripp, Steward of the Earl of Egremont's Western estates (the resulting catalogue, in two volumes, is stored in Box 74). Despite some inconsistencies, it illustrates the accrual of the estates.
Bundles A-O (boxes 1-5) comprise mainly settlements relating to the large estates with some earlier deeds of title of elements of the ancient estate. Subsequent bundles cover deeds of title to individual manors and estates together with deeds of later acquisitions from the mid C17th. Schedules of the lands held, together with pedigrees of the Wyndham, Sydenham and Wadham families, are included in the "Tripp Catalogue"(see Box 74). This should be consulted with reference to deeds unfit for production to students and also for giving an overall picture of the family holdings since it lists deeds not deposited at the Somerset Record Office. The catalogue relates to the manorial records (boxes 44-47), the Seymour family manorial records (box 49) as well as the deeds of title (boxes 1-19). Also stored in Box 74 are the calenders of the early deeds compiled by Col.Malet on behalf of the National Register of Archives, 1951-1952. The calendars are arranged chronologically with each deed being allocated the reference MTD followed by its original reference. These are indicated in the present list. At the time of calendaring several artificial bundles AZ, BZ, CZ, DZ, EZ & FZ were created. These have all been disbanded and the deeds allocated to the appropriate original bundles except in the case of bdl.AZ comprising deeds of Watchet (stored in Box 5). Several deeds found in the original bundles of miscellaneous deeds have been similarly resorted.
