(Definitions supplied by LB on the basis of the Oxford English Dictionary)
1A terrier is a register of landed property including lists of vassals and tenants with
particulars of their holdings, services and rents; a rent roll; in later use a book in which
the lands of a private person or corporation, civil or ecclesiastical are described in their
size, boundaries, acreage etc. Also in extended application an inventory of property and goods.
2A garth is a small piece of enclosed ground, usually beside a house or other building,
used as a yard, garden, paddock etc.
3The herbage is the natural herbage or pasture of any land as a species of property
distinct from the land itself.
4A rood is a measure of land properly containing 40 square poles or perches but varying
locally, or a plot of land of this size (a pole or perch being 6 to 8 yards).
5A flat is one of the larger portions into which the common land was divided: a square furlong.
6An oxgang is a 1/8th part of a carucate or plough land, varying from 10 to 18 acres.
(A carucate is the amount of land which it is possible to plough with a
single plough and a team of 8 oxen in one day - hence an oxgang is the share of land
ploughed by one ox in one day).
7A headland is the strip of land left untilled in a field at the end of furrows for
convenience in turning the plough. In old times this was used as a boundary.
8An obligation is an agreement enforceable by law whereby a person or persons become bound
to the payment of a sum of money or other performance.
9An obvention is an incoming fee or revenue, especially one of an occasional or incidental nature.

The Registers of the Marriages in the Parish of Reighton from the year 1754 to 1803, both
included, were entered and witnessed in the Register Book according to the form appointed by Act
of Parliament, but being written on paper and in a state of decay, were extracted from if in
the year 1803 as follows by me, Henry Eustatius Strickland, churchwarden of the Parish of Reighton.
(This appears in the register in 1803. In places the year of marriage is ambiguous as Henry
Strickland began the year on January 1 whereas the registers of this time began on Lady Day,
March 25. Where possible I have looked for the date of baptism of the first child and
assigned the marriage to the year which seems most likely in this context. Where there are no
children recorded of a match (usually where one of the parents came from outside the
village) I have allocated it to the year given by HS. However, the year of any marriage between
1754 and 1800 should be treated with some caution if it took place between January 1 and
March 25. The year given by HS is in brackets at the end of the entry. )
