Deed of Gift which begins "THIS INDENTURE made the first day of June in the second year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord George the fourth............" It is an indenture between John Clarke of Loughbrough, Robert Clark of Great Leake and John Edward Fosbrooke of Kegworth for messuages, outbuildings and watercourses etc. It is in good condition for its age. I am not an expert but I think it is written on vellum. It is quite thick and has a slightly greasy texture. It measures 31" x 21". I have produced a typewritten copy of the text which I hope is correct although the writing is legible.

Oxford Printed at the University Press for the British and Foreign Bible Society, Instituted in London in the Year 1804;and Sold to subscribers at the Society's House, Earl Street Blackfriars London MDCCCXLV" ( is that 1845?)

The family details are:

Clara Brown died March 7 1877

AnnThorpe died April 25th 1893

John Thorpe born March 22nd 1822 died aged 71 years Feb 22nd 1893

Although this family line seems to end this bible belongs with the third bible, below.also see the two lovely cross-stitched book markers found in this bible.

The second Bible - 10 and a half inches tall this has the same pattern on the front as the bible 1, same make etc. and came togethr so I think they'll be part of the same family. "The HOLY BIBLE, Containing the Old and New Testaments: Translated Out of the Original Tongues; and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised, By His Majesty's Special Command. Appointed to Be Read in Churches"

Oxford Printed at the University Press for the British and Foreign Bible Society, Instituted in London in the Year 1804;and Sold to subscribers at the Society's House, Earl Street Blackfriars London MDCCCLXVIII" ( is that 1868?)

The front board of this one comes off completely and there's also a complete break of the book a third of the way in, see photo!

The family details are:

Elizabeth Rowland Wife of John Rowland Borne Oct 31st - 1859 at Hemington

Arthur Wheildon died Oct 13 - 1906 at Sawley

This bible has Sawley mentioned and from the internet I have noticed some Sawley connections to my third bible.

The third Bible - 16 inches tall "The Christian's Family Bible or Library of Divine Knowledge. Containing the Scred Text of the Old and New Testaments with the Apocrypha at Large. Illustrated with short, but suitable, Annotations" by the Rev'd James Wood.

Leicestershire Northamptonshire and Somerset all have a Hemington, although when I've searched the internet I am leaning towards the Leicestershire one.

Derbyshire Lancashire and North Yorkshire all have a Sawley, with this I am tending to think it must be the Derbyshire one, but There may be a Ardwick in Lancashire connection.
