Surely s62 Law of Property Act applies here:

(1)A conveyance of land shall be deemed to include and shall by virtue of this Act operate to convey, with the land, all buildings, erections, fixtures, commons, hedges, ditches, fences, ways, waters, water-courses, liberties, privileges, easements, rights, and advantages whatsoever, appertaining or reputed to appertain to the land, or any part thereof, or, at the time of conveyance, demised, occupied, or enjoyed with, or reputed or known as part or parcel of or appurtenant to the land or any part thereof.

How is it possible to have more than one set of deeds for a property?
Each time a property was conveyed a new set of deeds was created giving the respective names of the seller and buyer and how much was paid for the property.

With unregistered land there may be a large number of those paper deeds passed on each time the property was bought and sold.

They are accurate historical deeds and it is often the case that an entry from one earlier deed was not transcribed correctly into the next deed created when a property was re-sold. This will often happen when parts of a larger parcel of land is sold off at different times.

A good root of tile for registration purposes is 15 years, so a conveyance dated more than 15 years prior to an application for first registration may not have included a specific easement, but referred to an earlier deed that was not provided to Land Registry.

That happens more often that it should and since modern solicitors then advise a client that these old deeds are no longer needed after a property is registered, the original paper deeds are not always retained, which is why there are problems cropping up that are sometimes difficult to deal with after the original paper deeds have been destroyed.
