[Bewley document]  Deed of Assignment of Goods
Thomas Bewley of Carlisle was a whip maker and his workshop is described as a whippery.  He was declared bankrupt in November 1780 and this deed, drawn up the following month, concerns the seizure of his possessions for the benefit of his creditors.  Thomas was not necessarily a business failure - one of his debts was '100 and upwards' owed to a surgeon, so ill health seems to have been a major factor.  Manuscript on parchment, size approx 28"x19", nibbled by mice at least twice but as the deed had been folded for convenient storage those two nibbles created six holes - with loss of text in each case.  Damaged it may be but the deed is unique, and if you are researching the Bewley family.........  (ref 7721)  priced for the damage at 10.00 post-free  Not for export

[Borrowdale/Dixon/Walker/Turner/Jackson families]  Pedigrees
The three main pedigrees here chart the descendants of 3 of the 9 children of George Dixon and Elizabeth Borrowdale who married c1760.  They commence with Elizabeth Dixon (d1819) who married John Walker;  Mary Dixon (d1827) who married Richard Turner;  and Jane Dixon (died 1820) who married John Jackson.    Members of all these families lived and died in Cumberland and North Lancashire.  Very useful detail in manuscript on paper, drawn up in the mid- 19c for a court case (Rimmer v Carr) and from a 4th pedigree charting descendants of a Borrowdale family we can see how the Walkers and Jacksons were related to the disputing Rimmers and Carrs.  This 4th pedigree is grubby and extensively torn along an old fold though perfectly legible.  (ref 3407)  30.00 post-free

Printed particulars for the 1881 sale of 'about 72 acres of arable, meadow and pasture land with a farmhouse & outbuildings'.  The particulars are accompanied by a coloured location plan showing a very fragmented estate (tenanted by Joseph Atkinson) with fields scattered between Corry House to the West and Fenton Lane Head to the East.  In the small print are mentioned several members of the Moses family from which it can be inferred that the sale of the property arose from the death of Frances, widow of John Moses.  The outside (as folded) of the document is very grubby and the fore-edge quite worn.  The large coloured plan (approx 28"x20") is in 2 pieces having completely torn along an old fold - there are several other tears, also along old folds.  The plan bears quite a few pencil annotations including an interesting one signed Thos Fisher - who may have been a successful bidder as the document is headed in ink 'Fisher Fenton'.  (ref 288/1)  16.00 UK post-free

This is a manuscript copy covering 11 large sheets of paper setting out in some detail who got what, the whole award amounting to 2536 acres.  The actual award was made in 1865 - there's no clue as to exactly when this copy was drawn up but we'd say within a very few years if not contemporary.  The 11th sheet encloses the rest when the document is folded and as such has become very worn along folds and there's a small part missing.  NB if ever there was a copy of the map it is long gone - nevertheless these 11 pages are a precious record of momentous events which must have affected more than half the parish.  (ref 139/68)  30.00 post-free
