Up for auction is a huge archive of material all pertaining to the Manor of Tuttington and Crackford in Norfolk, England. This large lot of documents spans from the early to the late 1800's. There are 44 in all- 19 of them are sheepskin (vellum) documents, 1 is a colored map dated 1856, 24 are paper documents, many of them multi-paged. There is a nice variety of types of documents including indentures, last wills, abstracts, etc. The paper documents are all in nice condition for the most part. The parchments vary from nice to heavily damaged, about 5 have red wax seals-many with multiple seals. Some of the sheepskins have areas where the document has disintegrated leaving holes, several spotted from moisture due to improper storage-one document is so tattered I was afraid to open it. Many of the sheepskins are in nice, easy to handle condition-see images below.

ANTIQUE MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS/BLOFIELD MANOR, NORFOLK A bundle of 20 documents from 1755 to 1883 This bundle of documents was found in a family loft, but although there are family ties with Blofield, I cannot connect any of the names on these documents. I think they may be of interest to local historians or historical collectors. They have been stored folded for a great many years and I would say the condition is fair to poor. At least one item is vellum. There are several documents with red wax seals and several have a blue impressed stamp. The papers relate to the copyhold house and premises (late Mr Joseph Page) at Blofield.

This indenture was produced in 1899 and commences with the will of John Hotson who leaves his property to his wife and children. Unfortunately he owes a considerable sum of money, so much that the deeds to his property are in the posession of the bank.This indenture records a mortgage of 2,200 so that the family can keep their properties. The parties involved in the agreement are Eleanor Mary Hotson, Arthur Wales Hotson, Mary Eleanor Drake, John Herbert Hotson, The National Provincial Bank, and Isabella Jolly of Torquay. The land and property involved is substantial and every item is listed on the four page vellum indenture. It includes 51 acres in Bunwell Parish, Church Farm in Carleton Rode which amounts to 104 acres, 151 acres at Pulham St Mary the Virgin and Pulham St Mary Magdalene. The number of fields, farms, and persons named is too numerous to mention. The document is signed by the five Hotsons and there are six wax seals and a bank wafer seal.

All the usual onerous conditions, no matrimony, playing at dice tables, nor frequent playhouses or taverns, a 4 year term, wage year one 1 shilling and 6 pence per week year one to year four when he received the princely sum of 6 shillings and sixpence per week.

This indenture records the conveyance of substantial amounts of land and property in Pulham Norfolk. The agreement is drawn between William Manning of Abergavenny and John Hotson of Stratton saint Mary. The sum of 7,000 is paid by Hotson to Manning for land and buildings extending to over 151 acres. The land is west of the road running from the railway station (is it still there?) to Long stratton. All the fields are numbered on a large colour wash plan measuring 12" by 11" and accompanied by a schedule on which they are named and measured. Today much of this land is built over. Having sold quite a few Pulham indentures, this is the finest. It is in top quality condition and produced on two sheets of creamish vellum. The script is attractive and legible, the plan is of the highest quality, and the schedule most informative.
