Title Deeds User Guide

Are you interested in deepening your abilities in archival research? This guide explains how to use our extensive collections of title deeds, dating back to the seventeenth century, for family and local history. These are documents which record the transfer of land or property between individuals, and the details of the transaction. They include personal names, dates, the costs involved and sometimes plans or maps of a local area. Download this guide to find out how to access this rich and under-used collection!

This guide was produced by Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the 'Land and Lives' project. Hard copies are available on request.
