Madley Inclosure Herefordshire 1862 Manuscript in small exercise book, compiled by David Hindley.  There's no clue as to what part (if any) David Hindley played in the process, but this is his record entitled 'Allotment in lieu of and Exchange for Common Fields in the Parish of Madley in the County of Hereford made allotted & awarded by Mr Wm Fosbrooke Surveyor Hereford - Completed at a Meeting held after Public Notice at the Red Lion Inn in Madley July 17th 1862.'.  There follows an indexed inventory of the situation before and after inclosure, with details of owners, occupiers, names of fields, their sizes and old&new field map numbers etc.  David Hindley rented a small field owned by the vicar, but he also owned about 5 acres.  One of the biggest landowners at the time was Guy's Hospital, with over 50 acres.  Small [approx 4"x7"] notebook, red covers, 80pp.  (ref 6179)

[Peterchurch & Dorstone] Abstract of Title to 2 Plots of Land bordering the Golden Valley Railway This 1894 abstract lists property transactions going back to 1882, though the story really starts with the death of Walter Gilbert Price (of Holmer) in 1851. He left the 98 acre Snodhill Mill Farm (and the watermill) to his nephew Nicholas Gilbert Price. Latterly, and heavily mortgaged, the farm devolved to other parties. All this is background to the presumably intended sale of 2 small plots of land which appear to have formed part of the original 98 acre farm. Plots no's 311 (in Peterchurch) and 922 (in Dorstone) on the tithe map are both described as meadow, and a small accompanying map shows them bordering the then Golden Valley Railway. Manuscript on 9 large paper sheets. (ref 3680)

[St Weonards & Pencoyd] Conveyances

3 items consisting of conveyances of 1826 & 1873, and the schedule of an 1826 survey (a plan almost certainly accompanied it but this appears to have been recently removed). The 1826 conveyance is a large parchment deed concerning three separate properties belonging to the Gwatkin family of Pencoyd:

1. Blue Enstone, Llanwarne, 31 acres.

2. Partridges Nest, St Weonards, 19 acres

3. The Marsh, Pencoyd, 3 acres.

and Partridges Nest & The Marsh, still the concern of the Gwatkin family, are the subject of the 1873 conveyance.

The survey is merely a breakdown of the 7 plots of land making up 'a small Farm called the Partridges Nest...'.

[Whitchurch] Group of 18th Century Deeds relating to Littlefield and Suit Acre

Ranging in dates from 1740 to 1794, these 9 parchment & 1 paper deeds give details of successive owners & occupiers. In 1740 John & Anne Jones mortgaged the property and it remained so until the 1760s when it devolved to the Beavan family. The name Suit Acre is not mentioned in the 2 latter documents (1789 & 1794) which may indicate it had been sold off or perhaps the name had gone out of use. A useful, if incomplete, run. (ref 16/65)
