“Dorset's Manorial Documents Register Now Available Online
The U.K. National Archives' web site has announced that the Dorset section of the Manorial Documents Register (MDR) has been made available online at http://nationalarchives.gov.uk/mdr/.

The Manorial Documents Register records information on Dorset's manorial records from over 400 manors, held at over 50 different locations, some in publicly accessible institutions and others still in private ownership. The Dorset project benefits researchers worldwide, enabling them to search for manorial records by manor, parish, type of record or by date, and to identify relevant records online for the first time for this county.”
