[Maberly exchequer plea] Plea explaining Non-payment of Taxes

The gist of this 1820 plea, made by Thomas Maberly, is that he can't pay his tax bill due to a defaulting debtor. He cites the debtor as John Vince who welched on an 1816 200 obligation bond. There's also much mention of a James Bush and it seems very likely that John Vince had signed the bond in good faith on a promise from James Bush. Wonder what happened? Paper, 2 sheets approx 10"x15". (ref 236/19)

On offer here is an early copy [probably contemporary] of the settlement, together with 3 parchment deeds [1704, 1728 & another 1728] to do with the same property.

[Ashdon property deed] Lease of House and Land

This 1606 lease is of a property know then as Whitehands (the occupant at the time being John Whitehand) together with several plots of land including 2 close called Ladyfield and a meadow called Platt's Meadow. Unusual inasmuch as there were 3 joint lessors (Thomes Wale of Radwinter and John Cowle & John Gardener, both of Ashdon) and 3 joint lessees (John Smythe of Clare in Suffolk, William Nightingale of [Saffron] Walden and John Wayte of Wethersfield). Single parchment sheet approx 19"x12", worn through where old folds cross, some waterstaining but perfectly legible. Bears signatures of 2 of the lessees (John Smyth and John Wayte) thus making this the counterpart copy of the lease. Ideally this needs careful flattening - having been folded for the best part of 400 years hasn't exactly been the ideal storage condition. (ref 236/18)

When he died the inn passed to the Bush family. 2 or 3 deeds have recent tears through careless handling, nevertheless a nice little collection, each item being well over 200 years old. (ref W4/169)

2 sets of Articles dated 1890 and 1899. It would appear the Harlow Brewery was formerly run by Thomas Chaplin, and his death in 1890 prompted the Articles in which Frederic Edwards and Frederick Chaplin Edwards became partners. Fresh Articles were drawn up in 1899 to admit Frederick Edwards (who was by then deceased)'s son Arthur B Edwards as a new partner. The earlier of the documents contains a 2pp schedule of Essex and Hertfordshire public houses leased by the company and a 2pp list of fixtures, fittings and equipment at the brewery.

The property was known alternatively by the name Fambridge Lands but there is no obvious connection with the nearby parishes of North & South Fambridge.

This really is a lovely piece of Victorian history. It is a book that contains many handwritten poems, thoughts, sonnets etc. I believe it belonged to a young girl by the name of MARY EUGENIA MONEY. It appears to date circa 1818 onwards. (From the IGI, there is a record of a Mary Eugenia Money, born around 1800, of Walthamstow, Essex). I have done a small bit of research on the internet and was able to find a picture of this young woman.Perhaps if someone has more time and know-how than myself they may be able to find out the history behind her. She has created a contents page, listed below are some of the contents titles:

A DREAM ....AND SO MUCH MORE.

 

What makes this even more charming is that at the end of the book she has turned the book upside down and written on the reverse of some of the pages. With regards to condition it is in excellent condition considering the age.However it appears that a few of the pages are missing.

Antique deed in very good condition from the 8th year of the reign of King George. Dated 1721. Counties stated include Middlesex and Essex. This really is in great condition with the usual folds and creases with no tears. Very neatly handwritten but the style I find difficult to interpret. The names stated on the deed include Russell, Dixon, Fitzgerard and Windey, and the deed is signed by Wendey and Dixon. Wax seals still present and there are three blue sixpenny stamps down the side of the deed. I generally only deal in books and have described this as best I can.

This is one manuscript / legal document from an interesting collection I acquired recently. They seem to be in the main for land deals around the area of Braintree Essex, and mention the surname Mott a lot. Latterly, in the late 19th century there were legal documents relating to a Motts charity, and I believe these were probably kept together for that charity. I have a few more on Ebay at the moment and over the near future I will gradually put on the rest ... keep an eye if you like this sort of thing, and if you want to see the others I have on this week click on the Ebay "view sellers other items" link above, top right.If you need any more information / images please email me. A Super manuscript on Vellum in latin, Elizabethan circa 1590, most likely to be a dispute over property and tried in London in the Court of Common Pleas, one of the three highest courts in the country. Measuring approx 14 iches wide x 10.5 inches high. With three nice seals attached, one being a lovely large chancery seal. And to expound a little ...... although in latin, the dispute seems to be between two parties, both with the christian name Willo the case had a novel ring to it Willo vs Willo, one party having the surname Bogiff and having the alias name Bigge (Big). The signature on the left hand side is that of the Lord chief Justice of the court of common pleas Edmund Anderson (Knight), who had a rise to power throughout the years of the Elizabethan court holding various titles of prestige and power. The scribes surname seems to read as Falstaff within the signature at the bottom right of this document. (From the image, I do not read this as Falstaff, but ....ball?
