Document on vellum dated May 16th, 1684, being a lease by Nathaniel Axtell of Lincoln's Inn, to William Parker, citizen, tiler and bricklayer of London for a messuage in Cow Cross, near St John Street, in the parish of St Sepulchre, Middx, and a messuage lying backward in the same passage. Parker also agrees to demolish the messuage 'next to the front' and replace it with two good and substantial messuages. The document then lists the building specifications in great detail. Written in a clear secretarial hand, with an ornate caligraphic initial letter surrounding the date'1684', a little faded in one fold, but generally in good legible condition, lacking seal, but with prominent signature of Axtell to the base. A document of considerable interest which provides remarkably comprehensive information on building methods during the Reformation, as well as property ownership in the area. Coming just 20 years after the Great Fire of London, it is possible that such well defined building specifications were considered necessary to ensure that a similar disaster never happened again.

Fine and extensive autograph letter signed by Ralph Hurt, an English Merchant in Lisbon to his father William a Merchant in London 'Per Blessinge' January 1637, in generally good legible condition, one small hole and one tear affecting a few words , with integral address leaf, 2pp folio A particularly informative letter of the state of European trade in the early years of the reign of Charles I. Hurt refers to a ship called the Mayflower, Master Wm. Bodiloe, comments on the state of Spain, mentions the loss of an East Indiaman called the Palsgrave, wrecked off Plymouth, and mentions the Reformation and the Discovery . The fact that Hurt knew of the whereabouts of these vessels is evidence of the speed with which news travelled in those days. He also mentions 'ye plague in England', and an 'Armada for Brazil' as well as a new child for the Spanish Queen and the appointment of Ferdinand III as Holy Roman Emperor. William Hurt is himself known to history as a London Merchant with some connection with the East India Company. Letters with such full information on the state of Europe from such an early date rarely appear on the market.

Lunatics. Two scarce documents on vellum, dated 1839 and 1858, being summonses to enquire whether Henry Robert Pearce and Robert Henry Wright are lunatics, the first document entirely in manuscript in good condition, the later document partially printed with manuscript insertions, slight dusting but otherwise in good order. Each document takes the form of a Commissioners' Summons to a hearing of enquiry . The venues are strange - the first hearing being held at the Cadogan Hotel in Sloan Square and the second at the King's Arms in Bow High Street. eformed in 1845. The asylums in which the lunatics were confined are known to history: the first refers to Blacklands House, Chelsea, a small home, which was opened in 1802 and was still known to be running in 1875. Samuel Wesley, the composer and nephew of Rev John Wesley was an inmate in 1817. Other inmates included two surgeons, two clergymen and a clerk. The second house is Grove House, Bow, opened in 1844 and at the time of this document housed 352 lunatics and 168 paupers: it was destroyed by fire in the 1890s.

Apprentice indenture evocative document on vellum, dated January 28th, 1830, being an indenture for Charles Miller, an illiterate boy of 13 into apprenticeship as a chimney sweep in London, printed document with manuscript insertions with wax seals and signatures of parties to the foot. One of the most undying images of the horror treatment of children during the 19th c is that of the boy chimney sweeps, forced to climb the filthy chimney stacks in London to clean them. The death rate of these 'climbing boys' was appalling, with boys suffocating in the choking smoke and soot, or becoming lost in the labyrinth of chimneys in large houses - and often their heartless masters, who treated them as common slaves, would light fires while they were still in the chimney systems. This barbaric work practice was finally stopped by Act of Parliament in 1875. Documents of this nature are extremely rare.

1872 ANTIQUE VELLUM SIGNED LORD CHIEF JUSTICE. ASSIGNMENT OF COMMISIONER OF OATHS TO THEODORE ROBERT RIXON OF GRACE CHURCH STREET LONDON. SIGNED BY SIR ALEXANDER EDMUND COCKBURN, BARONET, LORD CHIEF JUSTICE. 1802–80, British jurist. He was called to the bar in 1829, and a volume of reports on election cases (1832) brought him into national prominence as a trial lawyer. He was made recorder for Southampton (1841) and was elected to Parliament from there (1847). He was noted particularly for his defense advocacy, one of his most famous successes being the acquittal (1843) of Daniel McNaghten, who had killed Sir Robert Peel’s secretary, on grounds of insanity; the “McNaghten rules” became the basic definition of criminal responsibility in most English-speaking jurisdictions. In Parliament, Cockburn successfully defended Lord Palmerston’s handling of the “Don Pacifico” dispute (1850). He served as attorney general (1851–56) and was chief justice of common pleas (1856–59) and lord chief justice (1859–80), presiding over the famous Tichborne case. GUARANTEED ORIGINAL.

London’s Oldest theatre The Covent Garden area has long been associated with theatre. The oldest established is the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, which had its origins in a patent granted on the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660. A small theatre was established off Drury Lane in 1663 and this has evolved via several auditoria to the present famous building. Sir Christopher Wren's sectional drawing entitled simply 'Playhouse' is generally reckoned to be at least an initial design for the 1674 Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Since its construction in 1663 the theatre has triumphed over tragedy, fire, bankruptcy and even murder, the celebrated actress/mistress Nell Gwynne played an important role in the theatre's history. In 1794 The Third Drury Lane Theatre was built Samuel Whitbread, the son of the brewer had a major involvement in the DRURY LANE THEATER. In 1809 the theatre was again destroyed by fire. Already over £500,000 in debt, the theatre was in danger of going out of business. Whitbread became chairman of the committee set up to rebuild the theatre. With the help of his political friends, Whitbread managed to raise the necessary funds and the Drury Lane Theatre was reopened on 10th October, 1812.

"THIS INDENTURE TRIPARTITE made the six and twentieth day of May on Anno Domini 1677 and in the nine and twentieth year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord Charles the Second, by the grace of God,of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith..." This is a land indenture between three people whose names appear to be MATTHEW BATEMAN, SAMUEL BERRY and RICHARD BACON Gentleman of the Middle Temple of London. The name JOHN HOSKYNS (Hoskins?)is signed at the base. It relates to land at St.Mary ***** Whitechappell (Whitechapel ?) Middlesex Essex and London. HATFIELD BROAD OAK ? and HATFIELD KINGS are also mentioned?? Very hard to read - time needs to be spent on this document. It is very large, made of real animal hide velum, and 326 years old. The artistry at the top left is super and is signed in the swirls by Edw Berry. Two huge wax seals at the base. Mention is made of stables, arable land, floodings (or shootings?), out buildings etc. The beautiful swirl on the outside has writing beside it in Latin. It measures 2 foot 7 inches by 2 foot when unfolded. This is an old English rarity made in the same century as Oliver Cromwells Commonwealth existed! This came with others from the Bateman family predominantly - many over 150 years later. One mentions the CRABS GREEN FARM at HATFIELD BROAD OAK, ESSEX, probably the same place!! (indenture: A duplicate contract, the two halves being cut in a zig-zag line, which was commonly employed in the early modern period..)
