Extremely attractive multiple sheet vellum indenture, dated February 2nd, 1651/2, being the bargain and sale by Jerome Weston, Earl of Portland to William Montague of Little Oakeley, Northants of the Manor of Croft, written in English, with decorative calligraphic borders, and with five unusually good and well preserved pendant wax seals attached by original vellum tags. A particularly impressive document which also reflects the fortunes of supporters of the King once Parliament had won the Civil War. The Earl of Portland was Governor of the Isle of Wight from 1633-42 the supported the King at the outbreak of war, residing in the King's stronghold at Oxford. On the capture of the King after the battle of Naseby he was compounded for delinquency (i.e. had to pay a huge fine to Parliament). Obviously the sale of this Manor was in order to raise much needed funds. On the Restoration he was reappointed Governor of the Isle of Wight until his death in 1663. The land referred to in this document is located in the Skegness area.

I am selling 2 marriage registers. One from the Parish of Saxby and the other from the Parish of Furzby, in Lincolnshire.

Both registers are identical in appearance (39cm by 25cm).

They are bound in Vellum and are too large to fit on the scanner, so only part of the cover is shown in the picture.

 

The Furzby register has a title page dated 1812.

The first marriage entry in this volume is dated 1831.

There is just one completed page of entries. 99 other pages are blank, but for the ruled out spaces and headings for names, dates, witnesses, etc.

This Furzby register has an ink splash on the front cover but otherwise the condition is very good. The whole volume is securely bound.

 

The register for Saxby begins with entries in 1813.

There are around 8 completed pages of entries, with the final marriage being dated 1836.

4 of the completed pages are quite delicately bound. Over 90 pages are unused.

This register is in very good condition.

 

An interesting feature of some of the entries is that not all those involved could read and write.

Some people have had to sign with a X, as their mark.

 

These are 2 remarkable items, as such registers would normally be part of church or Parish records.

It must be most unusual for 2 Georgian marriage registers, from the same area (Lincoln), to appear on the open market.

A rare pair of documents.

 

The 2 registers are heavy. Even so Uk delivery is only 4.58. International surface delivery to all countries 8.20

Old English hand written Mortgage deed dated 9th July 1821 (executed in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord George the Fourth - Prime Minister at the time - Robert Banks Jenkinson, Earl of Liverpool) and made between William Hooker, the Mortgagor of the one part and William Broadhurst, the Mortgagee of the other part to secure the sum of 16,000 over some 216 (or more) acres of land situate in Lincolnshire. The Mortgage deed consists of 2 pages and a backsheet. It measures 30" x 25" and its weight is approx. 144 grammes. For its age it is in excellent condition. The back sheet is a little stained due to storage and it is slightly thin on one of its folds. It has been stored in the same Safe for over 20 years. An ideal piece of English history for collectors of old hand written documents. The signature and the wax seal appears to be in the same condition as if it had been signed and sealed only yesterday, not nearly 200 years ago. The 2 original Revenue stamps (sealed and impressed on the front of the 2 pages with the original black stamps on the back) are again near perfect.

Masses of reading in English for someone but the condition of this vellum is not as good as others we have sold, some water staining and a few small holes (nibbled by mice?) which mean the odd word of text is not complete, the seals are also missing.

The document has been well preserved and is an ideal piece of English history for collectors of old hand written documents. The signature on the mortgage deed itself is a little faint and the original seal which is in near perfect condition is for some reason a very dark green/nearly black substance. The deed stamps in 1882 value 7.10.0. appear as though they were impressed only today. The seals on the Transfer are again near perfect. They are red.

A very early and unusual item. This is a mortgage endenture dated 1821. It details an agreement between jonathan maltby and george moore to a loan for 3080 for tenanted premises and parcel of land, conveyance of estate in ingham, linclon. It is all hand written with quill and ink and has beautifully calligraphy. The paper is of amazing quality and each of the three pieces is held together with what look like paper ties. It still as all the original wax seals and really is a wonderful piece of history. The lot was held in trust in case of default of payment. Each sheet measures 59 cm by 76 cm.
