COMPLETE DOCUMENT FROM THE TIME OF KING CHARLES II 1667 This document was handwritten just 6 months after the Great Fire of London Very unusual reign calculated date (see further info on this below) This is in excellent condition for a manuscript from the 1600's. There are over 50 full lines of script written in the English of the day and should be easily decipherable. I have not deciphered the contents of this document other than the first few lines and a few names and to ascertain that it concerns lands in Wensleydale Yorkshire. Plus I've picked out a few words at random to illustrate the delightful old English spellings. Although the document is written in Old English it should easily be decipherable by anyone with a little patience as most words are recognisable in todays' English.

THIS DOCUMENT STILL HAS THE FULL SEAL TAG IN PLACE. THERE IS THE SIGNATURE OF CHRISTOPHER TENNANT WITH IT PLUS MORE WITNESSES ON THE BACK. ALSO ON THE BACK ARE ARE TWO STRANGE LINES OF HANDWRITING MENTIONING THE DATE 1664 AND 1667 WITH OTHER INFO ALONG WITH THE MEN'S AGES.

This document was handwritten in Old English with a quill pen using sepia ink on vellum (calf skin) parchment. The document is in sound condition. The good condition is due to it being kept folded for centuries. This vellum and can be unfolded with ease without fear of it tearing. There are a few stain patches but these do not obliterate so the whole document is able to be deciphered.

The manuscript starts :-

" This Indenture made the five and twentieth day of March in the Nynetenth year of the Raigne of our Soveraigne Lord Charles the second by the grace of God King of great Brittaine France and Irelanddefender of the Faith Yr Anno [Domini] 1667. Betweene Christopher Tennant of Deepdell in Langstrouth dale within the Parish of Arncliffe and County of York yeoman of thone part ....."

ALL THIS IS WRITTEN IN JUST THREE LINES SO THERE IS A WEALTH OF MORE INFORMATION TO BE GLEANED WITH A LITTLE PATIENCE

King Charles II reigned from 1660 until 1685 but notice that this document refers to 1667 as the nineteenth year of his reign. This has been calculated from the day his father Charles I was beheaded. Most unusual. This would seem to indicate that Christopher Tennant was a Royalist.

THIS DOCUMENT WAS WRITTEN ON THE 25th March 1667; THE DOCUMENT MEASURES :- 27 inches wide X 21 inches + seal tags

Leather bound small book (page size c.7 x 4") containing literally 100+ individual accounts for goods supplied to various persons between 30 year period in early 1800s onwards, plus detailed many pages of stock taking accounts due to THOMAS MORLEY, listing huge number of persons awing him a few . The vital thing we are missing is WHERE did THOMAS MORLEY operate - almost 100% sure it was the city of YORK - a brief listing of a few names taken at random will help confirm - DIXON, Book Binder, PAVEMENT, Mrs SAWYER, THORNTON LE CLAY, Mr HUDSON, STONEGATE, Mr WARD, PETERGATE, Mrs BELLERBY, CLIFTON etc. This is a real treasure trove for YORKSHIRE social historian.

Fantastic old bible, probably printed at the end of the 19th or begining of the 20th centuries. The brass bindings are in very good condition and hold the bible tight when closed, it does appear that someone has repaired these bindings recently.

At the front of the bible there is an engraving of John Brown and the first part of the book is taken up with his life history. Followed by a section on Jewish laws and types and then a section on the Geography and History of Nations.

Both the Old and New testaments are peppered with beautiful coloured and un-coloured engravings. Whilst photographing the engravings I came across one that had been bound into the bible upside down, this engraving is a little stained by a leaf that has been pressed inthe book.

Between the old and new testaments, there is a section for recording family details, much of which has been filled in for a family surname LEYBURN dates range from about 1885 to 1903. There are a number of things tucked into the bible at this position, including a 1913 National Health Insurance Contribution Card, un stamped but in the name of Sarah Leyburn and an original certificate of baptism dated Feby 28th 1878 for Herbert George Leyburn, son of George and Mary Ann Leyburn, baptised at the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, stamped with a violet Victorian one penny stamp. The Leyburn family look to have settled in Norfolk and Suffolk but the baptism certicate is from Redcar. Any Leyburn geneologists out there ?

The book is 10.5 x 13.5 x 4 inches and weighs in at a massive 5.5 kilos.
