[Carter Family of Buckingham] Large Collection of Miscellaneous Minor Papers Ranging in dates from 1852 to 1902, much of the paperwork concerns Richard Carter, died 1884. The collection appears to have been rummaged through several times and this is all that remains - a few hundred minor papers, predominantly from the 1880s and 1890s, including such things as local traders bills, dividend statements, a few small account books and much routine day-to-day correspondence etc. Latter papers concern Richard W Carter, presumably a son. The collection (ref 333/12)

[King/Bradbury/Moorcraft/Lines family] Documents relating to Cottages in Preston Bissett A collection of 15 documents - including a 40pp abstract of title - chroncling 70 years [1782-1852] of the history of these cottages. Their location isn't described in geographical terms but by a succession of occupiers - including some members of the family. The family's involvement began in 1792 when the cottages were bought by Edward Lines. When he died [1828] they went to his daughter Elizabeth Ann King. As well as original and copy property deeds, there are some more personal items such as probated wills, an admon and copies of entries in baptism, marriage and burial registers [1 of each]. Some of the documents are very grubby. The collection (ref 7419)

[Brill & Elsewhere] Sale Particulars of Leaphill Farm, Ixhill Farm, Chilling Place Farm, Cuckoo Close

Printed particulars for these properties which came up for sale at the Golden Cross Hotel, Oxford, in 1912. The 119 acre Leaphill Farm, tenanted by William Watkins, was entirely within Brill parish, and the particulars include a couple of photos. Only 15 of the 138 acres of Ixhill Farm [tenanted by E Crook] were in Brill, the rest being in Oakley. The particulars include a photo of the farmhouse with thatched barn nearby. As far as Chilling Place Farm [tenanted by William East] was concerned, nearly half lay in Brill, the rest in Piddington. The particulars are accompanied by a couple of photos including a nice view of this 14th century former manor house. Cuckoo Close was a 6 acre plot of land entirely in Brill. Tucked in a flap in the rear cover are large folding coloured site plans for 3 of the 4 properties [that for Leaphill Farm is missing]. Pencillings in the margins are by someone at the sale. It would appear Leaphill Farm sold to W Fuller for 3700, Ixhill Farm was bought by Mr Hawes, Chilling Place Farm was unsold and Cuckoo Close was bought by White for 350. Grey overlapping printed paper covers, edges worn, pp lightly foxed. (ref 360/2)

[Buckingham] Group of 10 Manorial Documents

Ranging in dates from 1798 to 1851, the documents relate to a copyhold cottage & land. In 1798 the cottage, newly built by James Tunks "on waste ground...situate within the Prebend of Buckingham near unto Dancer's Brick Kiln there, the Public Highway leading from Buckingham to Bourton lying on the South West and Great Port Field lying on the North East side thereof...". In 1816 James Tunks surrendered his copyhold in favour of Michael & Mary Westley. The Westley family retained the copyhold until February 1851 when it was surrendered to Rev Eusebius Andrewes Uthwatt. As the 1851 census was taken shortly afterwards it may be possible to identify where the cottage was situated. (ref 6870)

The 1822 mortgage was taken out by William Jones so he appears to have lived in the cottage from then until 1829 when he sold it to Edward Cripps Westly, a local carpenter. (ref 44/268)

Though these 3 adjoining properties can't be identified just from their location 'near the Castle Hill', it should be possible to identify them from the succession of occupiers 'for many years in the tenure or occupation of...Job Wilson...and late of Abraham Wheeler, a messuage or tenement some time since in the occupation of John Jones, late of Geo Elborough and now of Robt Holt...'. A large chunk has been cut away from the 1843 release - apparently recently taken by a collector of embossed tax stamps. The four (ref 333/30)

In 1815 the cottages were sold to John Watts and, though he died in 1827, they remained with his widow & daughters until 1834.

[Charndon] Document Concerning Smarts Farm

This is actually a detailed legal query sent to Lincolns Inn for expert opinion. Smarts Farm was evidently part of the Manor of Charndon which was settled in 1746 on the marriage of Philip Lord Wenman and Sophia Herbert. Extracts from various documents show the descent of the manor and its subsequent break-up. This document shows the situation as at 1809, when there was some uncertainty about exactly how much land belonged to Smarts Farm. What was merely a request for legal clarification has left us this interesting piece of local history. 7 large paper sheets protected by a now very dilapidated covering sheet. (ref 44/181)

_________________________________

From "Magna Britannia" 1806:

The manor of Agmondesham (called in the Norman Survey, Elmodesham) was given by William the Conqueror to Geffrey de Mandeville, and, with other large estates, descended from him to the noble families of Fitz-Piers, Bohun, and Stafford. After the attainder of Edward Stafford, Duke of Buckingham, King Henry VIII. granted this manor to Sir John Russel, ancestor of the Duke of Bedford. In 1665, it was purchased of William, Earl of Bedford, by Sir William Drake knt. and is now the property of Thomas Drake Tyrwhit Drake esq. The family of Drake had been settled in this parish some time before, by the marriage of Francis Drake esq. of East Sheen, in Surrey, one of the gentlemen of the bedchamber to King James I. (descended from the Drakes, of Ash, in Devonshire,) with Jane, daughter and heir of William Totehill esq. of Shardeloes, in the parish of Amersham. William Drake esq. was created a baronet in 1641, but dying a batchelor in 1669, the title became extinct: he bequeathed his estates in Amersham to his nephew, William Drake esq. afterwards Sir William Drake knt., in whose posterity they still continue.

Shardeloes, the seat of Mr. Drake, stands about a mile from the town. It formerly belonged to the Brudenells, collateral ancestors of the Earl of Cardigan: this branch of the family terminated in a female heir, who brought Shardeloes to the Cheynes. It was afterwards the seat of William Totehill esq. an eminent lawyer in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, who had the honour of entertaining her Majesty at Shardeloes in one of her progresses: Mr. Totehill's daughter married Mr. Drake, as above-mentioned. Among the pictures at Shardeloes is the portrait of a Lord Chancellor, by Cornelius Jansen, supposed to be Sir Christopher Hatton. The gardens, much commended for their beauty by the editors of the Magna Britannia published in 1720, were formed out of a morass by Sir William Drake knt.; they were modernized for the late Mr. Drake, by Richmond.

 

Mr. Drake has three other manors in this parish, called Woodrow, Wood-side, and Wedon-hill, all of which have been a considerable time in his family: the manor of Wedon-hill belonged anciently to the family of Wedon, and afterwards to Sir John Cobham, who surrendered it to the crown in the reign of Edward III. that monarch granted it, in 1365, to Peter de Brewes.
