The Aylsham Papers

  • AYL
  • Fonds
  • 13th century-20th century

The Aylsham collection consists of the papers of Adey, Repton and Scott, Aylsham solicitors, and their clients. The greater part of the collection was acquired between 1969 and 1977, with a number of smaller subsequent acquisitions. This catalogue replaces the original catalogue in which items were numbered and listed in the order in which they were acquired. These original numbers have been retained, but have been re-arranged in this catalogue to bring together the records of the most important clients.

The firm's own records have been reassembled, as have the private papers of the various partners: those of William Repton (died 1858) contain material relating to his brother Humphry Repton (1752-1818), the landscape gardener.

The largest sections within the collection derive from the major clients of William Repton, namely Robert Lee Doughty (1749-1817) of Hanworth, William Windham (1750-1810) of Felbrigg, Thomas, 6th Viscount Ranelagh (1763-1820) and his heirs, the Harbord family of Gunton, barons Suffield, and the Anson family who purchased some of the estates of the Paston family, earls of Yarmouth. Each client deposited significant numbers of title deeds and legal papers, which have been augmented, in most cases, by solicitors' correspondence, and papers of Repton and his successors acting as agents for the estates. They contain few personal papers, with the exception of the Doughty papers: these include the papers of Robert Doughty (c 1616-1670) of Hanworth, justice of the peace, those of his maternal grandfather, John Browne of Poringland, and great-uncle Thomas Browne, secretary to the bishop of Norwich, and of the Brownes' cousin, Sir Arthur Heveningham (c 1546-1630), all of which are a rich source for the study of local government in Norfolk.

Where possible, records of minor clients have also been grouped together, and there is a section for wills and testamentary papers. The collection also reflects the activities of the solicitors in local elections, as trustees for charities, as stewards of manors, and their involvement in numerous enclosures.

There are also sections for miscellaneous deeds relating to freehold and copyhold property. These reflect the firm's conveyancing activities, mainly in north Norfolk, but also contain small groups of early title deeds which may belong with the papers of the major clients, but which have been impossible to place, as several of Repton's clients held land in the same parishes and manors.

The catalogue is structured as follows:
