BYRON, George Gordon Noel, Lord.: Original legal indenture recording the sale and conveyance by William, 5th Lord Byron (immediate predecessor of the poet), of land near Rochdale in Lancashire to John Clough, clothier, of Spotland. Signed twice by Byron and by his attorney and various witnesses and dated 20 July 1744. Vellum deed, ca. 22" by 16", written in a legible hand within red ruled border; folded, some yellowing and other age marks, one small hole affecting a few letters, but generally in very good state. With Byron's seal at foot, chipped but substantially complete. The fifth Lord Byron, here described as 'Baron of Rochdale in the County Palatine of Lancaster and Lord of the Manour of Rochdale aforesaid' but commonly known as 'the Wicked Lord', earned a fearsome reputation as a rake and spendthrift; he killed his cousin in a duel after a drunken argument and built a folly at Newstead which was reputed to be the venue for 'unspeakable orgies'. Despite these excesses he outlived his son and grandson, and so it was that on his death in 1798 the title and estates passed to his ten-year-old great-nephew, the future poet. The present document adds another piece to the jigsaw of the complex history of Byron's inheritance: William was only twenty-two when he sold this parcel of two acres for the sum of 2 8s., reserving to himself and 'his heirs and assigns..the yearly rent of eight pence of lawful money' - rent which presumably was to form part of his successor's income. By the time of his death Wiliam was penniless, leaving not even enough for his funeral expenses, and the entire income from his estate was swallowed by debts. Eighty years after the date of this initial sale the poet, after years of litigation, sold the remaining Rochdale estate for 11,225 to fund his Greek enterprise. A few months later he was buried in the family vault, his coffin resting on the Wicked Lord's.

1865 ANTIQUE DEED HAWKSHEAD LANCASHIRE - NOW CUMBRIA -.LOW START PRICE AND NO RESERVE MANUSCRIPT COPY TITLE DEED FROM THE MANOR COURT OF HAWKSHEAD BEING ADMITTANCE OF DOROTHY HARRISON AND OTHERS FOR RIGHT IN TRUST TO LAND AND CLOSES IN CONISTON QUARTER AND HOLME HEAD. NOTES OF RENTS IN MARGIN HAWKSHEAD is an ancient market town, situate in the centre of a warm and sheltered valley, at the head of Esthwaite Water, and surrounded by the lofty Fells of Furness. "The small round-topped verdant elevations," says Mr. Baines, "with which the country abounds, give a softness and beauty to this part of the lake scenery, which can scarcely be excelled." The construction of this town is very antique, but there are no authentic records to show either its origin or the etymology of its name. When Furness Abbey was in the zenith of its splendour, in the middle ages of British history, a court was held here, at which the bailiff of Hawkshead dispensed justice in the name of the abbots. The room in which this court was held is still pointed out over the gateway of the house called Hawkshead Hall, now occupied by a farmer, about a mile north from the town; and here the abbot kept residence by one or more monks, who performed divine service in the church and other places. Though several of the old-fashioned houses still remain, yet there are many good dwellings in the town, and some comfortable inns, especially the Red Lion, where conveyances are always in readiness for visitants and tourists; and it is a matter of surprise that this central and picturesque town is not more frequently resorted to by tourists to the lake district.

RICHARD SHUTTLEWORTH

THOMAS HOUGHTON OF BRYNFOLES NR WHELETON

ALEXANDER RIGBY OF BURGH

"the said Thomas Standyshe hathe marryed and taken to wyffe Margarett the reputed daughter of Sir Richarde Houghton Knight deceased" Dated 26 June in the 23rd year of the reign of Elizabeth I 1581

This single page document in English sets out the complex inheritance rights to Thomas's properties of Margaret's and Thomas' children. There are also a group of what appears to be trustees also having an interest in the properties.

Thomas Standish's properties included:

The Manor of Heapey

The Manor of Whytell in the Wooddes (Whittle in the Woods)

The Manor of Duxbury

And all other messuages, tenements, etc, of Thomas Standish lying and being in Duxbury, Heapey, Whittle in the Woods, Heath, Worthington, Claughton, Longton, Croston Burrow, Standish, and Anglezark.

This document will be useful to anyone with an interest in the old Catholic families of Lancashire such as the Houghtons and Standishes.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The years 1580/81 were of significance as this was the time of the Jesuit leader Edmund Campion's stay in Lancashire (he was executed later on in 1581). It is interesting to speculate that documents like this indenture were created to make it difficult for Elizabeth I to confiscate lands from known catholic families such as the Standishes.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Standish family had held a share in the manor of Heapey since 1300.

Part share of the manor of Whittle le Woods was granted to Gilbert de Witul in the reign of Henry I, who subsequently passed it onto Richard le Butler, and through his ancestor John Butler de Rawclif, into the hands of the Standish & Anderton families. The Anderton family transferred their portion of the manor to Mr. William Crooke.

 

The other portion moiety described as Whythall in the wood, was passed from Warin Bussel through Richard Fitton, onto the Lee family, and subsequently to Sir Richard Hoghton through his marriage to Sibil, daughter of Sir Henry Lee.

 

The Houghton and Standish families have been associated with William Shakespeare (reference the recent Michael Wood BBC series on Shakespeare). One of the family members at the time, Alexander Hoghton, wrote his will in August 1581 naming William Shakeshafte (taken to be Shakespeare by some historians). Members of the family were also friends of Dowager Countess Alice, widow of Ferdinando, 5th Earl of Derby, who, as Lord and Lady Strange in the early 1590s, were patrons of Strange's Players, who performed some of Shakespeare's early plays.

 

Handwritten in English.

 

Creasing, dust marking and some faint text in areas around the folds.

 

Signatures of all parties with vellum seal tags. Only one still retains the intact wax seal.

Indenture recording the settlement by Thomas Standish after his marriage with Margaret Houghton, between THOMAS STANDISH OF DUXBURY, LANCASHIRE, ESQUIRE, and EDWARD STANDISH OF STANDISH, LANCASHIRE. Dated 20th October 1579 in the 21st year of the reign of Elizabeth I "the said Thomas Standyshe hathe marryed and taken to wyffe Margarett the reputed daughter of Sir Richarde Houghton Knight deceased" This two page document in English and Latin sets out the complex inheritance rights to Thomas's properties of Margaret's and Thomas' children. There are also a group of what appears to be trustees also having an interest in the properties. Thomas Standish's properties included:

The Manor of Heapey

The Manor of Whytell in the Wooddes (Whittle in the Woods)

The Manor of Duxbury

And all other messuages, tenements, etc, of Thomas Standish lying and being in Duxbury, Heapey, Whittle in the Woods, Heath, Worthington, Claughton, Longton, Croston Burrow, Standish, and Anglezark.

This document will be useful to anyone with an interest in the old Catholic families of Lancashire such as the Houghtons and Standishes. Document has extensive creasing and some tears, but all text is readable.

_______________________________________

The Standish family had held a share in the manor of Heapey since 1300. Part share of the manor of Whittle le Woods was granted to Gilbert de Witul in the reign of Henry I, who subsequently passed it onto Richard le Butler, and through his ancestor John Butler de Rawclif, into the hands of the Standish & Anderton families. The Anderton family transferred their portion of the manor to Mr. William Crooke.

The other portion moiety described as Whythall in the wood, was passed from Warin Bussel through Richard Fitton, onto the Lee family, and subsequently to Sir Richard Hoghton through his marriage to Sibil, daughter of Sir Henry Lee.

 

_______________________________________

 

The Houghton and Standish families have been associated with William Shakespeare (reference the recent Michael Wood BBC series on Shakespeare). One of the family members at the time, Alexander Hoghton, wrote his will in August 1581 naming William Shakeshafte (taken to be Shakespeare by some historians). Members of the family were also friends of Dowager Countess Alice, widow of Ferdinando, 5th Earl of Derby, who, as Lord and Lady Strange in the early 1590s, were patrons of Strange's Players, who performed some of Shakespeare's early plays.
