An 1873 declaration as to the title to the tithes and tithe rent charge in lieu thereof issuing out of certain farms in the parish of Upton, Somerset. The parties involved are Henry Woolcott of Sandhill, yeoman and Charles Longbourne of 26 Lincoln Inn Fields. Where Henry has acted as agent after the death of Sir Thomas Lethbridge Baronet in1849 now confirms details regarding the tithes in order that land can be sold. The property in question is the Sandhill Estate covering 49 fields spread over two farms called East Moorhouse and West Withy, all in Upton, Somerset. Charles along with John Longbourne are solictors working as trustees. From the two letters that are attached the estate is then purchased by Colonel Davie for 13,000. A schedule included in the main document lists the fields with their corresponding number from the tithe map, their field names and acreage.

 

A two page document on paper, one sheet folded, measuring 9 inches by 1 foot 3 inches. In good condition, no holes or tears, although it has been slightly damaged by water.
