HENLEY IN ARDEN COURT LEET and COURT BARON
The Court Leet and Court Baron dates from a Royal
Charter and was a Court authorised to deal with matters relating to the
duties and services owed by the peasants or villains (not Freemen) to
the Lord of the Manor. It exercised the peacekeeping jurisdiction of
the Sheriff’s twice yearly tour of the hundred courts. It
received presentments about obstructions of the highway and
watercourses. It regulated the weights and measures.
Today, the Henley Court Leet is
one of only 32 recognised Court Leets in the Administration of
Justice Act 1977 and it is responsible for continuing the
