Account of the Janssen Family
This manuscript account was copied from Wotton's 1741 Baronetage and other sources.  No clue as to when it was written - we'd guess pre-WW1.  The gist of the info is that the family originated in Holland and after a spell in France became naturalised in England in 1685.  They seem to have settled in Wimbledon.  These quite scrappy notes may well provide vital clues to a Janssen researcher - certainly it'll provide pointers as to where to look.  Some of the notes are transcribed in French.   Paper, 8 sides.  (ref 405/22)  10.00 UK post-free

[Godstone document]  Architect's Report on the Godstone Park Estate
This 1867 mortgage suitability report by a London architect concerns a 30 acre piece of land, clearly part of a much larger area being sold off piecemeal for development.  Despite a plan being attached to the report we found it impossible to pinpoint the location of this not insubstantial plot.  The few roads on the plan are all annotated as newly formed roads.  As far as the report concerns (which we'd regard as a surveyor's report rather than an architect's) the wording that might help is "Blindley Village Church is within half a mile of the site, and the new and commodious Hotel with the extensive Stabling attached and the adjoining shops are still nearer.  The Railway Station is little more than half a mile off....".  Manuscript on 2 large paper sheets with a 3rd as the covering sheet, hand-drawn & coloured plan which breaks the plot down into smaller plots marked 1010, 1011, 1012, 1013 and 1017 which are either from the OS map or perhaps the tithe map.  All rather worn & torn, and priced accordingly.  (ref 3357)  10.00 UK post-free

The two Reigate documents above are examples of late Victorian Government-orchestrated schemes - commencing with the 1864 Land Improvement Act - which enabled  landowners to borrow large sums of money ostensibly to carry out improvements to land (such as improvements to drainage etc) and other property.  In the above examples Lady Henry Somerset appears to have borrowed 7200 in March 1895.  The later (November 1895) document mentions a figure of 6620, though we haven't been able to determine whether this was a lowering of the original amount borrowed or an addition sum.  In both documents the reason for the borrowing is given as 'for the improvement of the Mansion House known as The Priory Reigate by alterations and additions thereto.....'.  We'd welcome any further insight into the scheme in general.  We know that much of the funding originated from professional lenders such as insurance companies, but little else about a scheme that was clearly nation-wide.
