Stockport Court Leet (1664)
This Court Leet and Court Baron with View of Frankpledge for the barony of Stockport was held 4th October in the 16th year of king Charles II. The court record, in a mixture of Latin and English, lists the jury, and proceeds to give their findings on recent trespasses, largely petty matters such as breach of the assizes of bread, ale and meat (presented by the alefounders and market lookers), and minor nuisances and infractions (presented by the miller, constables, burlymen and moor lookers). In addition there are notes as to the transfer of burgages; orders warning individuals to cease transgressions and notices of aldermen, burgesses, tenants and heirs who had failed to do suit of court. The amercements were assessed by the affeerers, whose names are also given. All the officers for the coming year were chosen (pp. 50-52) - assessors, apprizers, market lookers, officer for flesh, officer to see the mastiffs muzzled, alefounders, burlymen, searchers and sealers of leather, scavengers, moor lookers, mayor, bailiff, constables, and affeerers.
