Title: Additional Manuscripts, catalogue 32

This is the thirty second volume of Additional Manuscripts (Add Mss) to have been catalogued in the West Sussex Record Office, and it has been compiled, in general, along the lines indicated in the first volume in November 1956


The class of Additional Manuscripts embraces all the smaller gifts and deposits of documents received by the Record Office, as distinct from the large family and estate collections, such as the Goodwood Mss., or accumulations from solicitors' offices, such as the Oglethorpe and Anderson Mss., each of which is referred to and quoted by name. The majority of such documents have been deeds of title, though increasingly a health balance of a vast range of other original material has been catalogued in these volumes. However, the pressure of the weight of material to be catalogued has meant that since volume twenty nine, the catalogues of title deeds, instead of being the detailed calendars that had been the practice until then, have appeared in summary lists, with the emphasis being placed on the property concerned, rather than on the parties involved, and the technicalities of the type of legal conveyance being used


This catalogue lists a number of small deposits, mostly concerning deeds of title, including many manorial records once in the custody of the Sussex Archaeological Society, or records of local businesses. But it also includes records of the Royal Sussex Masonic Lodge, Worthing (Add Mss 26869) and the Selsey Masonic Lodge (Add Mss 30313-30320); Scorebooks of the Sussex Martlets (Add Mss 31135-31138) and Henfield Cricket Club (Add Mss 31507-31548); records of Chichester Civic Society (Add Mss 31364-31440); the Solent Sunbeams (Add Mss 29894-29900); and of Southdowns CND (Add Mss 30075-30085). The documents range in date from a title deed of Rullings in Woodmancote of 1345 (Add Mss 30974), to a Bognor Labour Party Election Address of 1983 (Add Mss 30084)


No index has been provided for this volume, as all the relevant details of this and all previous volumes have been included in the card indexes of persons, places, manors and subjects, which are to be found in the Search Room of the West Sussex Record Office


Searchers are again asked to exercise care in quoting references, and to use the form Add Mss followed by the relevant number or numbers. In printed works the reference should be preceded by West Sussex Record Office (or W.S.R.O. in subsequent references). Those wishing to photocopy items catalogued in these pages should seek permission from the Archivist in the Search Room, and those wishing to quote from documents in published work, should seek permission in writing from the County Archivist
