These copy deeds mainly concern the following areas of Manchester:

The Little Meadow, The Lyon's Den or The Purgatory, Dean's Gate, Park Field, Royle's Deal, Dole Field, Bridge Street, Three Cornered Meadow, The Great Meadow, The Boat Field. These mainly concern one John Gartside who in 1797 had recently moved from Crumpsall to Bath - possibly due to money problems. He seems to have inherited the rents of multiple plots in the various places already mentioned from Margaret Lightbourne, who in turn had inherited them from her parents John & Eleanor Lees. Copies of the wills of the last three are included in this very detailed collection. All the items are copies (on paper) made in 1808 of documents going back as far as John Lees' 1741 will. There is no clue as to what prompted all these copies being made - the most likely reasons are either a sale or a dispute. Fascinating insight into late 18th century Manchester. 11 items in all, offered at an affordable price (average less than 4 an item) in an attempt to keep the collection together. Incidentally, Margaret Lightbourne in her will left 200 to be donated to a hospital 'for the support of persons deemed incurable' and 200 for another hospital 'for the support care and attendance of lying-in women' provided the hospitals were built in the parish of Manchester within 7 years of her death.

[Poulton-le-Fylde & Thornton document] Abstract of Title to Farm & Lands

This 1890 abstract is accompanied by a large (approx 23"x18") plan on waxed linen showing the railway running through this 32 acre farm which in 1871 was described as 'All & singluar the messuage or farmhouse and farm with the barn outbuildings and garden and the several closes or parcels of land belonging thereto situate in the townships of Poulton-le-Fylde and Thornton.....all which hereditaments were formerly in the occupation of Robert Brindle and George Brade but then of Edward Dutton....' This is essentially the same document as above though in typescript, though the plan clearly shows Hard Hill Meadow as just asmall - and detached - part of the whole. This abstract also features such plots of land as Thrimlands, Broad Meadow and the 6-acre Horse Pasture, this latter field being cut right through the middle by the railway. Typescript on 10 large paper sheets + the hand-drawn map. (ref 408/181)

[Poulton-le-Fylde & Thornton] Abstract of Title/Plan of Estate

The large multifolding plan is all that survives from sale particulars printed for an 1890 sale. The various fields and plots of land almost co-incide with an abstract of title, also 1890, which contains a plan on waxed linen which implies the name of the estate was Woodhouses. The abstract is in manuscript on 19 large paper sheet and provides details of property transactions going back to 1831. Some of the field names are shown as Great Marl Hey, Old or Little Marl Hey, Hodgsons Hardhill, Ley or Long Hardhill, Little Hardhill or Whinny Field. The large plan measures approx 35"x25" and is torn along some of the folds so needs careful handling. As far as we can tell the site is a few hundred yards to the North of Poulton-le-Fylde railway station, and is probably still open land. The pair (ref 480/182)

[Poulton-le-Fylde documents] 2 Abstracts of Title to Property at The Breck

A 21-sheet abstract of c1851 and a 5-sheet abstract of c1863, both concerning Breck Field. The larger document gives details of property transactions going back to 1787, and clearly by 1833 at least 3 cottages had been built 'on the East of the Public Highway or Road leading from Poulton to Skippool'. The smaller abstract would imply that in 1808 a part of the land was sold off to widow Ellen Dagger. Principal parties involved are Fayle (from1748 to 1787), Brown (1787-1805), Nunns (1808-?), Hull (1805-1833), Carless (1833 onwards), Fisher (1839 onwards). The pair (ref 408/184)

[Poulton-le-Fylde documents] 3 Abstracts of Title to Breck House, Cottage and Land

These 3 abstracts dated 1886, 1909 and 1909 provide details of 3 lots of property deeds. There are 3 small plans making it easier to see what area was involved. The earliest of the abstracts is clearly a draft & consequently the handwriting is quite scrappy in places - but the information is invaluable as it goes back to 1850. Very much to do with the Sykes family. The outsides (as folded) are grubby but the worst of this can easily be dealt with - the insides are clean, though. 40 large paper sheets in all, manuscript and typescript. The 3 (ref 408/190)

[Salford] Large Group of Property Deeds - Corner of Chapel Street/Clowes Street

Ranging in dates from 1773 to 1905, these deeds not only record the parties involved in the various property transactions, but they indicate the development of this very specific part of Salford which 200 years ago was Warmingham's Orchard. 39 items in all, parchment and paper.
