Collected citations of Netherwood as a surname in British archive catalogs.
Some entries edited for brevity or, occasionally, clarity. Square brackets [ ] indicate comments or summarizing by the Study.
Many document descriptions do not include a personal name but there is a list for those that do or where the name has been identified.

Document copies can often be obtained by mail or even digitally from the repository. Those marked "+" are on file with the Study. Should you contemplate ordering copies, it's good to remember that some documents tell you no more than appears in the citation, such as the Dorset juror list below. Also, a single document reference may consist of many pages and older items can be huge and/or fragile, making copies shockingly expensive or unavailable for reproduction. Some are in Latin, and even when written in English old handwriting can be difficult to decipher. The Study will transcribe Netherwood documents in English from the 1500's and later, however, at no cost.

In using the list below, your "Back" button will return you to the top. For further searching, most catalogs can be accessed at the archives' own web sites; some will be found only at A2A (Access to Archives) and many are at both. Due to a change in the level of cataloging for some archives, WYAS in particular, some of the descriptions below can no longer be seen at A2A.
