Batcombe Tythes. Group of three vellum and two paper documents, 1771-86, all revealing the dissatisfaction of the Rector of Batcombe with the level of revenue he was receiving from the local tythes, the vellum documents retaining numerous signatures and wax seals This interesting group of documents provides considerable information on the ancient feudal system of tythes and the payments made. Each vellum document is in effect a contract between the Rector and the local population for an increase in the annual tythes with the threat that if they declined the increase in payments, he would "take the tythes in kind".

1728 VELLUM INDENTURE WITHYPOOLE SOMERSET This old, much loved, manuscript was drawn up on 30th January 1728. The main name in it is Robert Cutcliffe. The document contains various names for people within the counties of Devon & Somerset. The parish mentioned, Withypoole, is now known as Withypool. The document is quite long. Below I have enclosed an abstract from it, which was done by a museum. I visited the area over 30 years ago and the house concerned was still there! At the time it belonged to a banking family, of which I can't remember the name right now. Possibly Martins. I met a farmer living nearby who invited us in for tea. He was fascinated with the indenture and said it solved some problems regarding who the Kings land belonged to, meaning Exmoor. For people with a genealogy interest, some of the possible deviations of Cutcliffe are: Cutclif Cutcliff Cutliff Cutlif Cutliffe Cutlyff

 

I have some details about the Cutcliffe (Cutcliffe of Damage) family going back to Thomas Cutlyff 1450 of Hartland, which was sent to me from the local museum some years ago. These include notes on the family, and Robert Cutcliffe's will etc., extracted from: W.R. Drake's "Notes and Notelets". Information about the Cutcliffe family has been copied from accounts of the Family of Cutcliffe by W.R.Drake, printed in London in 1876. Also the details of this indenture has been on a website for some years (my contribution): - http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/SOM/Withypool/indent01.txt Size is approx. 15" high and 22" wide (inches) There is a red wax seal at the bottom. The seal is an image of a Lion, presumably Hugh Portbury's as his signature is next to it. There are also 3 blue stamps on the top left-hand corner. These look like VI Pence on each one? There are the usual folding creases, and staining although it has been kept in acid free tissue paper in the dark.
