[Eglinton Family document covering 70 Years] Abstract of Title to Propty in Diss, Part Freehold, Part Copyhold

This 1870 abstract gives details of deeds and documents going back to 1800 when John Eglinton paid 230 for a shop in Drapery Row in the market place at Diss. This had ceased to be a shop by 1824 when he mortgaged it for 250. The mortgage was paid off in 1826 and the property immediately sold to Solomon Eglinton for 600. As well as the shop, which was freehold, came a stable and stallage which were copyhold. In the transcript of the copyhold paperwork is recorded the fact that Solomon was the son of John, who died in 1848. Solomon died in 1870 and left the property to his widow Ann on condition she sold it, and it is the imminent putting up for sale of the property which prompted this abstract. Nice clean document in manuscript on 12 large paper sheets. (ref 3263)

You are bidding on a document which mentions Diss, Norfolk. There is a date on the document April 22nd.?1805. The document mentions, amongst other things...'I have Bought the House &Garden Now in the Occupation of of Joseph Beech and under Tenant Near the Pound Leading to the Common Called Diss Common with the Granary...'. This maybe some kind of copy, as all the signatures appear to be of the same hand. There are tears, folds and marks and this document cannot leave England or Wales. The document is in a delicate condition and has a 'little plan' on the 'back page'.

A paper document containing 42 pages of handwritten text relating to properties in Norfolk. It is a "Release Of An Estate" between The Right Honourable Caroline Hans, Dowager Lady Suffield of Norfolk; The Right Honourable John William Robert Kerr, Earl of Ancram, son and heir apparent of the Marquis of Lothian; and Sir Robert John Buxton of Shadwell Lodge in the Parish of Rushford in Norfolk, Baronet. There are lots of names mentioned throughout this document such as: the Earl of Buckinghamshire, Earl of Mount Edgecumbe, Lord Brownlow, Marchioness of Londonderry, Sir Richard Heron, Joseph Dixie Churchill and Lewis Duval of Lincolns Inn, Middlesex. There are far too many to list here. The document also refers to numerous previous indentures, agreements, Acts of Parliament, Court of Chancery decisions etc. This is a goldmine of information for anyone willing to explore it fully. The final page of the document is torn but this is basically page 43 and therefore the condition doesn't affect the main body of text. All other pages are in good condition apart from slight ageing round the page edges. The writing is much clearer than it appears in the photo. There are no seals on the document.
