Edward Milligen Beloe (c 1826-1907) and his son, Edward Milligen Beloe (1871-1932), the younger, were solicitors and antiquaries of King's Lynn. This section contains transcripts of original records, correspondence, and papers relating to the Greenland Fishery Museum at King's Lynn, founded by E.M. Beloe the younger in 1912. The notes are mostly by E.M. Beloe the younger and relate to King's Lynn and the surrounding area; they reflect his legal interests, containing analyses of court books of the Guildhall, King's Lynn, and notes on cases heard at the quarter sessions. The collection contains notes for published articles by father and son on King's Lynn, Castle Rising, memorial brasses, etc. They were also keen collectors, both of original manuscripts, and of works by other antiquaries. On the death of E.M. Beloe the younger in 1932, most of his notes were given to Bradfer-Lawrence by his widow, Edith Beloe. His collection of original manuscripts was sold, many were purchased by Bradfer-Lawrence, and these papers will be found throughout the collection.
