1682 Original Vellum Indenture Written by hand in the 30th Year of the reign of King Charles the Second PLUS 1774 Vellum Copy of the Original. Both written in English and detailing an agreement between Richard Crossley Yeoman and his son Richard Crossley, with mention of Anthony Crossley, who I believe was involved in the building of Scaitcliffe Hall in 1666 (now a hotel). The Crossleys were an important family of Scaitcliffe in Todmorden. Below some further information.

 

One family, the Crossleys of Scaitcliffe, has survived, and resisted the mutations of time; and while every spot around has passed into the possession of some adventurer in the road to wealth, their estates remain undiminished in area, acquiring increased value every day from the improvements in continual progress around them. The Crossleys trace their origin to the Saxon eras and, on a stained glass in the hall window is the following inscription upon a scroll that encloses the family-arms: "The kingdom of East Saxons," probably of the East Angles, for there is another ancient coat of arms here, also on stained glass, marked with the initials E. A. The first member of this family, mentioned in history or in accessible records, is "Adam del Crosleigh de Todmordene in Viii de Hlornerresfeld in the County Palatine of Lancaster, and Matilda his wife but this document is without date, and can hardly be earlier than the reign of Edward III. when the county was first made palatine. The next is John del Croslegh of Todmordene, 30 Edward III. anno dom. 1365 "Of this family, John Crossley, of Scaitcliffe, Esq., is the representative; and, of all the ancient families in the parish of Rochdale, he is the only resident proprietor in strict lineal descent."

This is a intreging find, i am no expert so i will try to describe the best i can, the bible measures when closed 5 and a half inches tall, 3 inches wide, 1 and a half inches deep, bound in leather, not sure of the date but dates include 1713,but could easaly be earlier, extremely old item. leather is a bit poor and i think the bible could have been near a fire because the edges seem to be burnt, can not tell if all the pages are there,no title page,and some are torn and ripped, although very poor condition, the bible is very very old. The inscription reads "Askwith November ye 16 day 1713. FINIS Jane Askwith ..m 24 of October 1714" From the IGI, almost all the Jane Askwiths at this time were baptised in Yorkshire.

On the document there is a red wax seal and 3 blue revenue stamps. The Manufacturers Hall was opened on 1st January 1779 and still exists today. It was built as a place for handloom weavers to sell their pieces of cloth, hence it was also called Piece Hall. In 1928 the Piece Hall was officially recognised as an ancient monument but it was not until 1972 that the decision was made to improve the building. It was saved from the alternative - demolition - by one vote. The original 300 shops were rationalised into larger retail spaces more suited to modern conditions; when full, the Piece Hall will house over 50 small retail shops. Size. The document is approx. 23" wide x 15" high. Condition. Some fading on verso but otherwise in excellent condition with the usual folding creases.

AN EARLY VICTORIAN MATHEMATICS SCHOOL EXERCISE BOOK - 1846 This is a 90 leaf / 180 page hardback mathematics school exercise book dated 5th October 1846 and inscribed "John Lincoln, National School, Enterpen". When closed the book measures 192mm X 242mm X 18mm. Every page of this early Victorian manuscript has been immaculately handwritten in copperplate text with such precision that any calligrapher would recognise this work as being of a very high standard. The handwritten contents cover various rules of mathematics written out long hand showing many worked problems and examples with very fine geometrical illustrative diagrams. The majority of the work is in black ink though the author has highlighted the work throughout with blue and red ink. There appears to be no pencil work at all. The quality of the paper remains excellent, pages being a clean white with no age spots. The book itself is in excellent condition. The bindings are sound and all pages are intact and unmarked. There is a small amount of scuffing on the spine which is only to be expected after 158 years. This note book must have taken months if not years of painstaking work to complete when you consider that there appear to be no corrections anywhere in the 180 pages of text. This item would be of tremendous interest to anyone involved in the study or teaching of mathematics and anyone with an interest in calligraphy and original Victorian manuscripts.

 

Background on Enterpen, National Schools and John Lincoln

 

I have found the following reference from a transcript dated 1868 which confirms that Enterpen was the name given to part of Hutton Rudby in North Yorkshire and that there was a National School established there in 1836.

 

"HUTTON RUDBY, a township in the parish of Rudby, W. division of the liberty of Langbaurgh, North Riding county York, 4 miles S.W. of Stokesley, and 6 S. of Yarm. It is situated near the river Leaven, the banks of which have an almost perpendicular ascent from the water's edge. Here are large linen factories, which employ a great number of the inhabitants. A portion of this township goes by the name of Enterpen. The Wesleyan and Primitive Methodists have each a place of worship. To the former is attached a school. There is a National School, erected in 1836."

 

The National Schools Society was founded by the Church of England in 1811 to promote the education of the poor with a curriculum centred around Anglican teachings. A transcript of North Riding Land owners dated 1871 refers to a John Lincoln in the nearby village of Appleton Whiske who is said to have owned 140 acres and 3 perches of land with a gross estimated rental of 155. It would seem that the education of Mr Lincoln served him well!
