Handwritten English vellum indenture dated 1796 during the reign of George III of Author and Designer Richard Payne Knight, of Downton Castle in Hereford. The indenture conveys a dwelling and property in radnor from Knight to Aaron Rogers, a Farmer. Knight signs the document next to a red wax seal. More information and Richard payne Knight is contained at the end of this description. Two blue revenue stamps with insert, tax stamp, and red wax seal on green cloth tag. Fine condition, measures 30 x 21". Richard Payne Knight (1750-1824) was a connoisseur, author and owner/designer of Downton Castle, between 1774 and 1778. Pevsner, in the Art Bulletin for December 1949, traces the origins of the Downton design to Vanburgh Castle and Strawberry Hill. Richard Payne Knight was the grandson of an ironmaster and the son of a clergyman. Pevsner believed he was more interested in sexual symbolism than anything else. This interest is revealed in Knight's book on The Worship of Priapus. Knight wrote a Poem, The Landscape (1794) in which he mocked the 'smooth' style of Lancelot Brown. This led to the 'picturesque controversy' between Knight, Price and Repton. Richard Payne Knight designed a castellated mansion with a picturesque garden at Downton. The architectural style was 'mixed', just as Humphry Repton was later to propose a 'mixed' approach to garden design.
