Vellum indenture of 5th February 1852, for the sale of property in Charlton, Shepton Mallet, Somerset from 'His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales to Mr Thomas Jelley', an extremely attractive document featuring decorative borders featuring ornamentation in blue and the Prince of Wales feathers in red, Queen Victoria's cipher in red, the Royal Coat of Arms, and a fine example of the Royal wafered seal to the base, and a finely drawn ground plan of the property involved completed in wash colours , document in fine, clear unblemished condition, together with eight further vellum indentures for land and property transactions involving other high status Victorian noblemen including the Duke of Beaufort, the Duke of Hamilton, the Marquis of Bath and the Duke of Leeds. Rare. Property transaction documents involving the Prince of Wales hardly, if ever, appear on the market. At the time of this document the future King Edward VII was only 10 years old, which would suggest that the property involved was part of the Duchy of Cornwall. (9) 150-200

Scarce document on vellum dated 1813, being a licence from the Dean and Chapter of Wells Cathedral to pull down an old farmhouse and barn, written in a legible hand on one sheet of vellum which still retains the original seal in its metal skippet, together with four other manuscript vellum documents dating between 1781 and 1853 granting rights to the Manor of Shipham including the right to hold fairs. This particular example allows Jonathan Elford of Plymouth Dock to demolish the house and barn which have become ' in a ruinous state' situated on a farm called Oakhampton in Wiveliscombe, Somerset. The other four documents chart the development of the Manor of Shipham in Somerset, the extensive mineral and farming rights being granted, as well as the right to hold fairs on the land.

Marriage Settlement. Historically important large multiple sheet vellum indenture dated 1722, being the marriage settlement of a high status marriage between Sarah Daines, daughter of Sir William Daines a Mayor, Sheriff and Member of Parliament for Bristol and Richard Champneys Lord of the Manor of Orchardleigh in Somerset, written in a neat legible hand throughout on seven leaves of vellum, signed and sealed by all parties. An important local historical document which will doubless provide considerable new information on Bristol and north Somerset during the reign of George I. Daines was Mayor of Bristol in 1700. He had been Sheriff in 1694 and sat in parliament on a number of occasions. Champneys derived from an ancient family originally emanating from the Champagne region in France. An ancestor accompanied William the Conqueror and established the family line in Somerset. Richard's great uncle emigrated to America in the 1630s and established the family in Cambridge Mass. The main bulk of the Champneys family papers are in the Somerset Record Office. Marriage settlements of this importance involving two historically identifiable and high status people rarely appear on the market.

Old English Mortgage Deed dated 28th December l881 with Transfer endorsed dated 7th September l891 (executed in the Reign of Our Sovereign Queen Victoria - Prime Minister at the time - William Ewart Gladstone) Between Ralph Henry Christopher Nevile of Walcot Hall in the County of Northampton and of Wellingore Hall in the County of Lincoln Esquire (1) Catherine Fleming Anderson and Jane Ann Anderson both of Winford in the County of Somerset, Spinsters (2) to secure the sum of 6000 Sterling with interest over messuages cottages and pieces or parcels of land situate on the west side of a road leading from Lincoln to Saxby situate in Spridlington in the County of Lincoln containing some 424 acres and 13 perches, with Deed of Transfer between the parties in reverse order dated 7th September 1891. This fine Indenture consists of 8 neatly handwritten pages. It measures 10.5 inches by 17 inches and its incredibly light weight is approx 51 grammes only. For its age it is in remarkable condition. The document is practically faultless apart from a very small dark stain on the back sheet which does not spoil the document. 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. The Revenue stamps in 1891 value 1.10.0. are again near perfect. The 6 black Revenue stamps are again in beautiful condition as if only attached to the document today.
