ArrangementThe following documents had previously been sorted and arranged in alphabetical order by place and this arrangement has been retained with few alterations. While the majority of the documents listed here are documents of title there are other various items making this section difficult to describe. Many of the documents had probably been brought together during the process of the Kenyon Family's legal affairs and businesses and may even relate to legal cases, and where this has been obvious the documents have been listed elsewhere. However, any evidence of an original order or provence no longer exists. The documents relating to the Isle of Man relate to Roger Kenyon II's position as Governor of the Isle of Man and likewise the Clitheroe election papers relate to his having been MP for Clitheroe from 1690-1695.
