Before their acquisition by the Law School, the collections were designated MS. Lat 14 and MS. Lat 14.7. At some point--perhaps just after 1925 when they were transferred from the Harvard College Library to the Harvard Law School--the collections were combined. As a single collection, the manor rolls were formerly designated simply as MS. Lat 14 and contained in boxes numbered 85-86, labeled A-E. The arrangement of the materials into numbered and lettered boxes has been abandoned in favor of the original sequential numbering of the individual items.

Finding aid updated in July 2017 by Eleanor Goerss and May 2018 by Jane Kelly, after the Library undertook a multi-year project to conserve and digitize the entire collection. Many corrections were made to the finding and improved description was added to the digital objects. The labels on the digital objects in the Mirador viewer contain extended information on place names and dates.
