Correspondence of William Forster, solicitor of Aylsham(d1906). 1851-1912.

The core of the deposit contains letters received May to December 1901, all of which had been filed on a spike, and give a good representation of the solicitor's work. For similar correspondence of 1886 and 1893 see MC3244/1. Four letters of 1851 probably reflect the earlier ownership of the practice by R W Parmeter. The affidavit of 1912 postdates Forster's death so is a stray.

Forster was steward of the manors of Aylsham Lancaster, Aylsham Wood, Waborne Priory, Burnham Thorpe and Pulham St Mary (Robert Copeman's manor) so many letters concern admissions, fees and enfranchisements. He acted for clients all over England but many of the properties were in north Norfolk. About half the letters are from other solicitors (including Henry Gidney of Aylsham) relating to minor matters; personal letters are from clients regarding legacies and rents and local tenants asking for assistance. He was also asked for all kinds of advice – re positions and loans. His practice was in Aylsham Market Place and he lived at Blickling Lodge (on the Cromer road out of town, just in Blickling parish.) He also had an office in Norwich.
The letters were randomly boxed when purchased but are now in date order. Subjects of interest have been noted below including letters from the Earl of Orford and E Denham Spurrell.

/1 Four letters to and from Richard Porritt Dix of Long Buckby nr Daventry: purchase for £130 of an Ingworth cottage and garden from Rev George Fish, through Wright of Aylsham and Rbt Wm Parmeter of Aylsham. 19 Nov- 3 Dec 1851
