As Peter Claughton rightly says, mineral leases were drawn up between
the owner of the mineral rights and the operator. Large numbers of such
leases survive among estate archives in most mineral fields. For
instance, the Grosvenor estate, which owned extensive mineral property
in north-east Wales, granted leases from the 1690s, and several hundred
of these survive. See my Handlist of the Grosvenor (Halkyn) MSS (Clwyd
Record Office, 1988). Unusually, the estate always attached maps to the
leases from the 1720s onwards. This became standard only in the mid-
nineteenth century, and many of such maps are typical 'solicitor's
maps', ie out-of-date, inaccurate, etc. The estate also had a
procedure for setting bargains or takenotes of the smaller mines. I
know very little about mining law, but I know that mining textbooks
start to print model leases in the nineteenth century. For example, see
the specimen lease and takenote, the latter drawn up by John Taylor, and
the former being one granted in Cornwall, in J A Phillips & J
Darlington, Records of Mining and Metallurgy ... (London, 1857), pp
212-20.
