[Hewett family document] Abstract of Title to [unstated] Property in Moreton Morland & Eagle
This undated but evidently 17th century abstract gives very brief details of land transactions ranging from 18Eliz [1576] to 19Car2 [1668]. William [described as Citizen] was the first of several Hewetts to be involved in these properties and is mentioned as acquiring the lands by conveyance in 35Eliz [1593]. Later on there is hint of a challenge that this 'conveyance' was merely a lease. Little information can be gleaned about the Hewetts, though William had two sons, John and Solomon. William also seems to have had a brother [Sir] John who somehow acquired the rights to the properties. Manuscript on paper which, as folded, became stuck together and has been holed by careless unfolding with the loss of some text. However, abstracts of this age are unusual.

[Gosberton and Quadring]  Abstract of Title to Lands
This undated but approx 1817 abstract lists details of property deeds and documents, and the parties involved, going back to 1687, when Henry Brown bought 'one moiety or half part of a decayed house and yard with a barn and a moiety of one acre of arable ground (more or less) thereto adjoining lying against the Cross in Westhorpe in Gosberton....'.  In 1695 he bought the other half.  The following year he bought 'all that messuage one cottage and 12 acres of land arable & pasture.....in the several parishes of Gosberton als Gosberkirke & Quadring.....'.  In his 1704 will Henry Brown left the property to 'my only daughter Margaret Browne a barn and one acre and a halfe of hempland lying under the same where a house formerly stood lying in Gosberton.....next a place called Cold Hurn Barr and the Queen's Highway north and west and the lands of Edward Haw east allsoe two acres of pasture lying in Quadring in the said county of Lincoln between the lands of Mr Toller south and the Lord George north and abutts upon the lands of the said Mr Toller west and a way leading to Dunstoft east Allsoe three acres of pasture called by the name of the Brick Lampe pasture whereof one acre lies in Quadring aforesaid and the other two acres in Gosberton aforesaid.....Alsoe two acres more of pasture lying in Quadring.....Also five acres and a half of arable and pasture called by the name of Dunstoft lying in Gosberton.....'.  All this was to remain in the family for many years - Henry Brown's daughter Margaret married John Northon, and on her death in 1781 the property was left to her son Edward.  Edward died about 1793 unmarried and left the property to his sister Ann Buckworth.  However it seems the property somehow devolved to Foaker relatives as this abstract was drawn up with the eventual aim to sell the property - which had been in the same family for well over 100 years.  Manuscript on 12 large paper sheets with a 13th as the covering sheet.   (ref 7024)  18.00 post-free

[Owmby document]  Abstract of Title to The Carr
This 1850 abstract of title provides details of deeds going back to an 1809 lease and release, which in their turn refer back to a 1773 lease & release.  In 1809 this 13 acre plot of land was called the Oxpasture Carr Close - it is also referrred to as simply Carr Close - and in 1831 it was still shown as being 13 acres so we can take it that this 1850 abstract provides a 77 year potted history of the various owners & interested parties such as mortgagees.  Principal names are Hinton (1773), Fawcett (1787), Burwell (1809), Bromhead (1826) and Dudding (1831).  The abstract is in manuscript on 22 large paper sheets with a 23rd as the covering sheet.  (ref 384/1)   16.00 post-free
