This interesting legal document is dated 1758 and has a blue seal attached to an edge with an impressed royal coat of arms as well as a black crown stamp a little further down (see pics).... I must admit I know nothing at all about this type of item, I purchased a collection of various 18th century legal documents from an antique auction, but I know nothing about antique documents so I'll describe items as best that I can and feel free to ask questions or request extra photos, as I said I have a collection of 18th century legal papers and I'll be listing them over the next week so please pop back and take a look.... This item measures approx 15 x 15 inches and is in good condition for it's age, as you can see from the photos it is fragile and it has yellowed with age, there are a couple of small tears to the seam where it's been folded for years by the lool of it and there is a little foxing on the back of this item which has a list of items paid I think,  in my opinion this item is in good condition for something nearly 300 years old although it is a little tatty but perfectly readable (to someone who knows what they are looking at that is!).... The whole page is covered with beautiful scripted ink writing that makes me wish I could write like that, I'm not sure what this document represents, the first couple of lines read Wakefield Court Baron and goes on to mention that this was writen in the thirty first year of the reign of our sovereign Lord George and goes on to the date of 1758, as this item is writen in old English and scripted I can't make out what this item is for, it mentions a womans name Sarah Fugram (I'm not sure if that her surname but its the best I could make out) several times and says that she should receive a sum of six hundred pounds, but I'm not sure if this item is a will or maybe a dowry agreement? I'm not going to guess anymore because I really have no idea about this type of item, but I'm sure a collector will take one look at the impressed blue stamp attached to the edge of this item and will probably know what it is immediately.... From the image the name appears to be Sarah Ingram.

I can say that each page is watermarked but not with the date it's a fleur-de-Lys shape, this item is titled "An abstract of the title Deeds of Mr Thomas Mathewman relating to his estate in angest in the county of York now in mortgage to Mr Stephen Hammorton in trust for Mr Shopley for securing the repayment of four hundred pounds and interest", then it goes on for 4 pages the first paragraph is dated 1708 March 26th and 27th and finished by saying Executed by Rich Lotwell, I think I may have got a few words or letters wrong but you get the idea, there's several paragraphs to this item all with different dates the earliest listed above....

 

This item is in good condition for it's age although obviously it is extremely fragile and yellowed with age, the pages are held together with a metel pin and there are a few tiny holes along the folds of the paper where it's been folded for so long, but this doesn't prevent the document being read so doesn't detract too much

On the 4th of April 1751, in the days when the rich and influential purchased commissions, a young 26 year old English army major of His Majesties Second Troop of Horse Grenadiers was preparing to marry and go abroad on active service. Being a man of some considerable property he needed to arrange for his estates and affairs to be managed during his absence. This man was Major Ralph Burton. He was to marry Elizabeth St Leger, of the titled St Leger family (of St Leger horse race fame) of Ireland and on the solemnization of this marriage his property would increase even further. Major Burton lived at Hull Bank House, Cottingham, Yorkshire (which later became Haworth Hall), and this forms part of the properties mentioned in this document that required management. Burton engaged two 'English Gentlemen' from Castle Yard, London, to undertake this task under this document of attorney. They were Bertie Burgh and James Unwin, both men of note at the time. The latter's wife is the subject of Gainsborough's famous painting 'Mrs James Unwin'. Burton's overseas trip was to fight the French in Canada for the next seven years. He was rapidly promoted to Colonel and became General Wolfe's second in command. He eventually achieved the rank of Brigadier General. From there Burton became The Governor of Three Rivers in Canada, and then Governor of Montreal. He died at an early age and left the property mentioned in this document to his son. His son died in 1784 and it all then passed to his sister Mary, Burton's Daughter. Mary Burton was married to Napier Christie, the son of English General Gabriel Christie who fought in the American War of Independance. Napier Christie returned with Mary to the family seat at Hull Bank House, changed his name to Burton and became Member of Parliament for Beverley. He then proceeded to fritter away all of the property mentioned in this document. £12,000 worth in 1793 and the rest after his wife's death in 1801. Amongst the properties and names mentioned in this document not already mentioned above are: The Manor of Grove, Hartford, Samuel Smith, Manor of Bodgbury Goudhurst and Ford, Mathew Pope, the Right Honourable Arthur Moliua St Leger Viscount Douorails in the Kingdom of Ireland. Burton went on to buy the manors of Powis, Richmond and Westmorland in 1767 but died the following year aged just 43. This is a very tightly written document, full of instructions and detail, written by John Wright, Lawyer to Major Burton, and John Wilson, Lawyer to Captain Pearson. It is signed by Ralph Burton and affixed is his personal wax seal. An amazing document from an important historical figure with strong links to Canada, Ireland, America, as well as England. I understand that Haworth Hall is now turned over to flats and apartments - what a unique acquisition this would be to the owner of one of these if this document returned home!

1865 Illustrated Family Bible This very collectable family Bible is leather bound with brass clasps. There is an Approbation by his grace The Most Reverend Doctor Cullen, Lord Archbishop of Dublin, Primate of Ireland which states that it has been collated with the Clementine Vulgate; likewise with the Douay Version of the Old Testament of 1609 and with the Rhemish Version of the New Testament of 1582 and with other approved English Versions. The Approbation is dated 10th of June 1865. It contains numerous plates, some in colour but the majority in black and white, as well as many illustrations on the text pages.

 

The Family Register records details of Reuben Gray born in Dungworth Dec 24th 1865 and his wife, Alice, born at Burleys Mount, Heeley? Sheffield May 14th 1863, their marriage at St Andrews Church, Sharrow, Sheffield Aug 1st 1894, the birth of their son, Colin Granville in 1896, his marriage in 1923 and the birth of Colin and his wife's child in 1929. I have saved a copy of the image of the family register.

 

Dimensions: 10.5 inches wide x 12.5 inches high x 3 inches thick. Weight: Approx 10 lbs (4.5 kgms) - hence high postage cost. Condition: Unfortunately the leather has split where front cover joins the headcap and although there is some black material behind the leather, this has also split most of the way down. The front cover hasn't actually separated from headcap but it is only hanging on by a thread at the bottom and by about an inch and a half of the black material at the top so needs very careful handling. Although the pages are slightly yellowed with age especially on the edges and there is some foxing, the binding is still OK and there are no loose or damaged pages.
