We have collected several sets of deeds outlining the transfers of land and property within and between families, in some cases over several centuries.

Most are concerned with land in and around the Westgate area, and in that respect can be regarded as following on from the deeds and other documents contained in the famous “Weardale Chest”, the subject of one of the museum’s displays.
