This is a rare book it is scripted 1861 and follows the PIGGOTT familly, a great opertunity to aquire a very rare book, it is a large size 10 inches by 12 1/2 inches high and 2 inches thick, it also has lots of coloured plates, and is in excellent condition, except the covers are a bit worn. From the FamilySearch website, 1881 census, I believe this to be the Bible of the family of Francis Albert Piggott, a bootmaker of Bridge End, Dorchaster, Oxford. His death is recorded as occuring on 15th February 1894. I have saved some of the images.

Marriage Settlement doucment dating from April of 1684. The document involves Mrs Perrotts of New Woodstock in the county of Oxon.  The paper has been folded all these years not rolled. However the condition is remarkable. It is a beautiful peace of art and history, and would look amazing framed. There is no reserve and a low starting price. All postage will be recorded as this item is too valuable to lose in the post. It is one document however, there are three pages attached, which is quite unique and special. The pages are made from very special paper which I think could be vellum or parchment but I am cannot be sure, however it’s very special paper if not. There are also a number of wax seals on the bottom of the page.

Richard Bettrice was a prominent Quaker in Oxford and started to allow Quaker meetings to take place at his house in New Inn Hall Street during the Commonwealth period. Meetings continued at Bettrice's house, despite the best efforts of the local undergraduates to disrupt them, and the punitive laws against “dissenters”. Finally, Bettrice was fined heavily around 1670, and over the next ten years or so it became difficult to conduct meetings at the house. In 1687 the Quakers bought land for a meeting-house and burial ground behind 63-4 St. Giles Street.
