On 20th September 2018 The Hexham Courant published that:

The Manorial Documents Register for Northumberland is an up to date record of all the county’s former manors that has been compiled over the last four years. The register contains a wealth of historical information and written records that is said to have enormous academic potential.

The paper version refers to the ‘Memorial Documents Register’, but the on-line version has the correct ‘Manorial Documents Register’.

The Manorial Documents Register (MDR) is an index of English and Welsh manorial records, providing brief descriptions of documents and details of their locations in public and private hands. Manorial records include court rolls, surveys, maps, terriers and all other documents relating to the boundaries, franchises, wastes, customs or courts of a manor.

The National Archives website still describes the Register (for Northumberland) as work in progress.

The Northumberland Archives website does not list the Register.
