BULL DEEDS DB200-299

DEEDS RELATED TO PROPERTY IN NEWPORT PAGNELL

DEPOSITED IN THE BUCKINGHAMSHIRE RECORD OFFICE

BY BULL, ASTLEY AND HARDING

TRANSCRIBED 1994-2004 BY DENNIS C MYNARD

At the Record Office the deeds are mostly in the original solicitor’s bundles which have been indexed with the Prefix DB for Deeds Bull followed by a number. Most bundles relate to the property of an individual or to a particular property. In transcribing them I have as far as possible sorted the deeds in each bundle into date order and numbered them consecutively.
The contents of each bundle are briefly described before the transcription but where a bundle contains the deeds to several properties I have placed the description before the transcription of each property. Occasionally deeds from one property have been found within a bundle for another, and where this is the case I have put their details into the primary bundle.

Any mistakes or inaccuracies in these transcriptions are my responsibility and the Copyright of the transcriptions is reserved, any use made of it must be acknowledged, and no part may be published without acknowledgement.

These transcriptions and interpretation by Dennis C Mynard, were carried out with full permission from Miss Catherine Bull and Guy Harding, former partners in Bull, Astley and Harding. These transcriptions may be reproduced with full acknowledgement.

4) Thomas Ince of Grays Inn, London, gent

John Hamilton, lace merchant of NP decd, was seized of property in NP, TICKFORD, Sherington, Olney, Hanslope, Wendover, Padbury, and Lenborough, Bucks. By his Will of 30.10.1779 he appointed Patrick Renny and Thomas Gardner, gent as his trustees, to hold his estate which passed to his son Thomas Abbott Hamilton for life then to his daughter (Thomas' sister) Ann Hamilton for life and then to John’s nephew Robert Hamilton for life and then to Robert's children in equal shares who were to hold as Tenants in Common not as Joint Tenants.

John died shortly after writing his Will (proved at Canterbury), Thomas Abbot died without issue, and Ann married the Revd Samuel Greatheed but died without issue. So the estate descended to Parties 1,2,and 3, who were the children and heirs of Robert Hamilton.

Recovery gives details of the Estate, which included property and land in Newport Pagnell, TICKFORD, Sherington, Olney, Hanslope, Wendover, Padbury and Lenborough. I have only listed the Newport property as below:

Certain properties had been awarded on 3.7.1795 to Ann Hamilton and Samuel Greatheed her husband on the Enclosure of the Port Field in lieu of John Hamilton's Open Field holdings in the Port Fields, which he purchased of Thomas Green and others.

Plot in the Lins field of 18a 2r 21p (exclusive of the Private Carriage Road directed to pass over it was awarded as above on the enclosure of the Port Field, this plot now made into 2 Closes which are hereafter described.

Whereas Act for Enclosing Fields in NP 5 Plots had been awarded on 11.5.1807 to the 3 devisees on the Enclosure of TICKFORD Field in lieu of John Hamilton's Open Field holdings.

1 Plot in the High Street with several cottages and other Buildings occupation by John Coles, Rose Paine, Mary Paine, and Eleanor Burrel, containing 3a, 26p, the devisees obtained this by exchange in lieu of the 3rd allotment to the Master and Governors of Queen Annes Hospital.

1 messuage and part of a yard with stables and the ground thereof situated near the High Street, containing 16p the devisees obtained this by exchange in lieu of the 6th allotment of George Viscount Valentia.

Also to devisees 1 other plot in Hog Holme containing 1a, 1r, 22p and 1 other plot in the south meadow containing 4a, 3r, 8p and 1 other plot in Mill Field and Middle Field cont, 66a, 2r 15p

And to the devisees 1 other plot in Mill Field containing 3a, 3r 18p, which was Philip Hoddle Ward's 19th allotment, the devisees obtained this in exchange for an Ancient Enclosure called Spring Close.

Also 1 plot in Mill Field containing 1a, 3r, 15p, the devisees obtained this by exchange in lieu of the first allotment of the Master and Governors of Queen Annes Hospital for part of an Ancient Close called Robinson's Close.

Also to the Devises under John Hamilton's Will 1 other plot in Mill field containing 38p which they received in exchange for the other part of Robinson's Close which was required for the Turnpike road.

Also 1 other plot in Mill field containing 1a, 3r 14p, the devisees obtained this by exchange with George Renny and Robert Murray Fraser of an Ancient Close called Clay Lane Close.

And which said allotments and exchanges so made and awarded to the 3 Devisees were allotted and awarded to them in lieu of the Open field Lands and other property late of John Hamilton and are now laid into 2 allotments or Closes the one of 6a 30p and the other of 74a, 1r, 21p.

The Acts of Parliament for Enclosures of Lands did not revoke a Will so the Devisees are seized of the Estate in Tail and are in possession of it. And whereas Ann Greatheed recently died without issue and Robert Hamilton (the devisees father) died in 1788 without making any limitation or apportionment of the estate so the Devisees are now seized of it, and have agreed to effect this Common Recovery to Barr the tail and too make it an Estate in Fee Simple, and Jane the wife of James Abbot Hamilton has agreed to join in for the purpose of Barring her right of dower. So the devisees sell the estate to William Ince (as perfect tenant) for 10/-.

First page of letter from W.B. & W.R. Bull to Salmons, they have "looked at old papers" and they quote
1879 Mortgage for £1000 (see above) subject to prior mortgage of £1700.
The £1000 mortgage was paid off in 1895 on dissolution of Partnership between Messrs Salmons.
Fresh mortgage given 7th May 1895 for £1200 at 4% Joseph Salmons borrows from Arthur William Hipwell, H.G.Hipwell, J.C.Hipwell and S.E. Hipwell, this was also subject to the prior mortgage of £1700.

"We find that many years the question was again gone into as to the desirability of approaching messrs Hipwell with a view of ascertaining the position they would take in the matter, they having received no interest on their mortgage, and we further find that they were seen and that they requested that a payment should be made to them on account to keep the mortgage alive. This would be about the year 1902 we believe" Bulls wrote to Salmons when the present partnership was entered and Salmons replied on 24th Sept 1910
