Estray Book

 

The Estray (or just plain Stray) Book is the record of domestic animals found wandering at large.  The finder registered it with the court, and after a certain time, they could claim them as theirs if nobody entered a claim otherwise.  The Sheriff typically listed them in the local newspaper via a notice.
