A 4 page, Handwritten Document, relating to Shaw Hall (or the Hall of Shaw), in the parish of Flixton, in the County of Lancaster. It is a certified copy of the original, dated 4th Sept 1775. The original document is dated 4th June 1772. I'm not familiar with this property or the origins of this document. However I have used the internet for research purposes, and this property seems to be Shaw Hall, Flixton, Manchester. This area is now part of Greater Manchester but at the time of the document it was a quite distinct parish, about 5 miles out of Manchester. I have read a contemporary description of Shaw Hall from 1830, which describes it a 'Curious Old Mansion, now occupied as a Boarding School (1830). I would imagine that it may have been a Elizabethan ot Jacobean Mansion. The property seems to have been the home to persons of great local importance and significance, some having held high positions in the county. 4 large pages (approx 40cm by 31cm). Secured with a silk knot in the top left corner. Securely bound and in good condition. Very neatly written in a hand of the 1770's. The document has been folded, so there is a vertical and horizontal fold line running across the pages. James Greatrex of Shaw Hall appears to have agreed to sell the property to Joseph Chippindall for 2300. Chippindall comes from Manchester. I find the document pretty difficult to follow, using the terminology, legal language and formalities of the time. However reference is made to barns, tennants, closes, fields and other properties, etc. Cheadle is also mentioned, I think in connection with Upton's Tenements and Pott's Tenements, possibly owned by one or more of the gentlemen. Property in St James Square Manchester is also mentioned, as are dwelling houses and land at Hulme. Perhaps something about retaining the rents there. Other names are mentioned in the document, such as Matthew Lyon, (of Warrington), Mr Frith (who seems to have secured hundreds of pounds in interest from mortgages). The document is in good condition with no damage or tears. It is absolutely original, with clear 'Pro Patria' watermarks visible in the paper, when held up to the light. A great document in good condition. Probably of great interest to historians in the Manchester area. I would imagine that the property Shaw Hall may no longer exist, so this is superb documetary evidence regarding a fine, and ancient mansion house which may have been lost many years ago.

A two page document in Latin which looks as though it might be a statement made at Macclesfield in 1694. It can't read Latin so I'll list the names that are mentioned: George Sutton of Hamleton, Winckle, Thomas Bawdrey of Macclesfield, Thomas Leigh of Ridge, Edmund Shaw, Walter Mottershead, James Beard, Edward Davenport, Henry Hatwell. I think it relates to property in Winckle. Has been folded
