By Indenture of 27.8.55 Thomas John Green gave "all his undivided half and all his shares and interest of and in the Wharf at NP" to Mrs Mary Green, Revd Henry Green, Revd and John Foster Green. (It looks as though they paid off the mortgage of £9000).

By various Indentures Francis Edmund Green, Anne Green and Adeliza Hilton have agreed not to accept the annuities granted under the Will of Thomas Abbott Green, but they retain the right to live at the Grange in Felmersham.

The Barnards have agreed to release the Wharf etc at Newport Pagnell subject to the payment of £1500, which payment would not prejudice the remainder of the outstanding balance owed to them.

You enjoy the site where the Barn stood nevertheless I have a client who is disposed to invest in the property and offers you the sum of £100 for your share in full discharge of all claims by you, and your executors etc.
He would build a cottage property on the site facing Bury St now occupied by your Builders yard. If you can accept the offer we can arrange to take possession. William M Pipe

24.10.1881

In answer to your letter of the 3rd inst. I should advise you to accept the offer of £120 otherwise I believe the probabilities are the half share will be put up for auction. The property being valued at £175 for the half share without the Bakehouse. I consider £120 is a reasonable and fair offer on the part of my client.
NB Please accept this as notice that any repairs or alterations you may carry out upon the property you do upon your own responsibility.

To Joseph from G A Bell of Salisbury St, Swindon
Dear Joseph and Jane,
I was looking over the items you gave me respecting the repairs etc and the cost of the same, that on the one side was given the credit on the other the assets – of course there is your share of the loss of rent of cottage from time of it’s being unfit to live I but for storage etc you have had the use so far must be equally borne and then the materials especially the bricks, I presume would be more than the cost of pulling down etc this of course can easily be put right and equitable so that in future no mistake will arise. I though it better to mention these things previous to further action and when Lizzie visits you the whole can be sorted out amicably previous to future arrangements respecting the rebuilding of the cottage. Any help I can give towards bringing the matter as far as both parties are concerned I shall be pleased to give. G A Bell

To Joseph from Walter J Neve, solicitor, 4, Chapel St, Luton
Sir,
I have been consulted on behalf of Mrs Elliott of Swindon and Mrs Walters of this town respecting their share of the property at Newport Pagnell which they are entitled to as Tenants in Common.

So I am instructed that they are entitled to a half share and you to the other, but that you are in possession of the whole of the property which is the value of £20 pa at the least and for 3 years past have refused to pay anything to your co-owners.

I have in the first place to apply to you for an account for 3 years past to midsummer and for payment of the amount due.

I have further to propose to you either to purchase from the clients their half share of the property at a fair valuation or to sell yours to them.

Unless you contract to one of the above offers I am instructed to commence proceedings for a partition or to compel a sale under an order of court.

I require that you reply to this letter by not later tna Saturday next.

Mrs Walters has seen me again respecting the property at Newport Pagnell and instructs me to say that with a view to an amicable settlement and to avoid the expense of litigation the other sister will accept £120 for their share of the property the same to include their share of the rents for the last 3 years but you to pay all the costs both Vendors and Purchasers on the conveyance of the property.

This offer is made without prejudice to their right to a much larger sum in case they have to take proceedings as they fell they are entitled to a much larger sum.

In case you do not accept this offer I give you notice that I shall commence an action to apply for a Sale of the property under the direction of the court.

I advise you to consult a solicitor on your behalf before you decline the offer I have made as it will not be repeated and if litigation is commenced the costs will be heavy.

10.10.1884
To Joseph from Walter J Neve, solicitor, 4, Chapel St, Luton
Sir,
The Agreement you mention has nothing whatever to do with the matter you are in possession of the whole of the property and are liable to account for half the annual value.

Conveyance for £90 of an undivided moiety of a freehold property in Silver Street.
1 Mr and Mrs Elliott and Mrs Walters
2 Joseph Mason.
Described as Property described as “All that messuage, tenement or dwelling house situate and being No 34 Silver St and also the adjoining Bakehouse and site or ground whereon another tenement recently fallen down heretofore stood together with the yard, garden (part of which was formerly an orchard) stable, sheds, outbuildings and premises thereto adjoining and belonging as the same was now in the occupation of Joseph Mason.

The property had formerly belonged to Holland Eaglestone a baker of Newport Pagnell who by his Will 15/12/1810 left to his wife Eliz. Eaglestone " A Messuage with Orchard and garden etc with the Bakehouse adjoining, then in the tenement of Thomas Worker.

The property was left to his widow for her life and then to their three daughters Sarah, Mary Ann and Martha. Holland died on the 22/12/1811 and his widow married John Cox, whom she survived, she died on 14/8/1841.

(This could be John Cox; Landlord of the Crown and Castle which became Whitmee's the plumbers after it closed)

The property then passed to the three daughters MARTHA, SARAH and MARY ANN or their heirs.

MARTHA married a Mr Brentnall and had one son who died unmarried and then Martha died before her mother, so her share of the property passed to her two sisters.

SARAH married John Litchfield, she died 14/7/49 but they had a daughter Georgina, who married George Allen Bell on 13/1/42 and they had 2 daughters, Eliz. Sarah (married an Elliott) and Martha Swannell (married a Walters). Georgina died on 15/7/48 whilst her mother Sarah was still alive and so her half share of the property went to her daughters, Eliz. Sarah Elliott and Martha Swannell Walters.

MARY ANN married John Robinson Paine on 24/7/11 and they had one daughter Jane who married Joseph Mason

So one half of the property was left to and divided between the Walters and Elliotts and the other half to Jane the wife of Joseph Mason. Jane and Joseph were "beneficial occupiers" of 34, Silver Street and they paid £90 for the Walters and Elliotts share.

I received your letter and I am sorry to find that Mr Earle has behaved so Base to you for he certainly has used you ill, in obtaining from you £100 under the pretence of the trouble he had in Getting the Lease of the House – The respect I had for the late Mr Delafield, was the only Motive which Induced me to Grant you the Lease, for which I think I took 2 guineas of Mr Earl, so the rest of the £100 was taken entirely out of your pocket and put into his own.

The said Charles Dorey the other and Surviving Executor and Residual Legatee in Trust having first Renounced the Probate and Execution of the said Will and also the Letters of Administration (with the said Will annexed) of the goods of the said decd”.
