Rents were paid to the Duke of Norfolk twice a year – at Pentecost and Martinmas. Pentecost was seven weeks after Easter (between 10 May and 13 June) and Martinmas was on 11 November. Rents payable were Chief Rents and Ground Rents.
Chief rents were annual sum payable on some freehold property, common in North West England, but found throughout the UK. Despite its name it was not a rent.
Ground rents were regular payment required under a lease from the owner of leasehold property, payable to the freeholder. A ground rent was created when a freehold piece of land or a building was sold on a long lease.
