[Shaw of Colchester]  17th Century Document
This document, signed by John Shaw in the year 1690-1, releases his brother Thomas Shaw [also of Colchester] from all claims '.....from the beginning of the world unto the day of the date of these presents....'.  It could be the settling of some quite serious dispute or merely a legal 'full-stop' on a simple property agreement - in isolation we can only speculate what brought about this document.  Manuscript on paper, approx 8"x11".  Nice condition, signed by John Shaw and two witnesses, nice clear wax seal.  (ref 197/3)  24.00 post-free

[Aveley document]  Abstract of Title to House in Lowlands Road
This multi-page document sheds much light on the development of the general area bounded by Lowlands Road, Toplands Avenue, Blenheim Gardens and Purfleet Road.  The area now covered in houses was in Victorian times Parsonage Farm, and before that a park.  The only road was Water Lane, now called Purfleet Road.  Although specifically drawn up to prove ownership of 2 Lowlands Road, this 1953 document will be of interest to anyone studying the history and development of Aveley.  Typescript on 18 large paper sheets (there is inevitably much repetition in the wording when referring back to previous documents) accompanied by 2 extremely useful sketch maps.  Covers the period 1886 to 1953.  (ref 658/65)  18.00

[Harlow]  Chaplin & Co - The Harlow Brewery - Articles of Partnership
2 sets of Articles dated 1890 and 1899.  It would appear the Harlow Brewery was formerly run by Thomas Chaplin, and his death in 1890 prompted the Articles in which Frederic Edwards and Frederick Chaplin Edwards became partners.  Fresh Articles were drawn up in 1899 to admit Frederick Edwards (who was by then deceased)'s son Arthur B Edwards as a new partner.  The earlier of the documents contains a 2pp schedule of Essex and Hertfordshire public houses leased by the company and a 2pp list of fixtures, fittings and equipment at the brewery.  Manuscript on paper.  (ref 21/46)   18.00 post-free

This deed concerns a small plot of land on the outside of the bend where Hillcrest Road becomes Oxford Road.  Then just a field, it was given to the Roman Catholic Church, presumably due to its proximity to the adjacent RC Church of the Sacred Heart.  The donor, Alice Green of Horndon Priory, would no doubt be shocked to discover so many changes have happened since her 1949 gift - the church demolished and the site now occupied by a house; the field she donated also built-on; that part of Hillcrest Road reduced to a grass track.  Typescript on paper.  (ref 658/66)  18.00
