Deeds to Estate in Letheringsett, Thornage and Holt

  • MC 2940/1-12, 1024X6
  • Archief
  • 1731-1866

The deeds relate to a farmhouse and land which in 1731 were described as a messuage in Letheringsett and land (101acres) in Letheringsett, Thornage and Holt, and comprised both freehold and copyhold land. In 1866 the freehold parts of the estate were described as: messuage with barn, stable and outbuildings, in Letheringsett; 10 pieces of land (65a 1r 4p) in Letheringsett and Holt; and piece of meadow land (4a 35p) in Thornage.
The copyhold parts of the estate were held of the manors of Holt Pereers, Holt Hales and Thornage with the members on the part of Thornage.
The farmhouse was just inside the parish of Letheringsett in a hamlet marked on the 6 inches to 1 mile Ordnance Survey map of 1885 as Little Thornage. The land lay along the valley of the River Glaven. For plan see MC 2940/12.
The deeds commence on 4 Mar 1731 with a bargain and sale (being a mortgage for £420) between Richard Girdlestone of Wiveton, mercer and grocer, and Thomas Turner of Kelling, clerk, of a messuage in Letheringsett (occupier Samuel Emerson) and land (101a) in Letheringsett, Thornage and Holt (MC 2940/1). Girdleston had inherited the property from his uncle, Richard Girdleston of Letheringsett, deceased.
On 2 Jan 1739/40 Richard Girdlestone, described as of Fakenham, linen draper and chapman, was declared bankrupt, owing £1000. On 10 Jun 1740 the Commissioners in Bankruptcy conveyed Girdlestone's property to Hunt Everett of Cheapside, London, haberdasher, and Thomas Brunskell of Cheapside, London, linendraper (two of Girdlestone's creditors), in trust to the use of them and all the other creditors (MC 2940/2).
On 30 Sep 1740 the Letheringsett, Thornage and Holt property was sold to John Holmes of Holt, schoolmaster, Girdlestone and his wife Dorothy Girdlestone being parties to the deed (MC 2940/3-4).
On 17 Nov 1740 Thomas Turner assigned to Benjamin Seal of Holt, mercer and grocer (trustee of John Holmes of Holt, gent.), the remainder of the mortgage term, Holmes having paid Turner the sum of £678 13s still owed by Girdlestone (MC 2940/5).
On 21 Jan 1760 John Holmes of Holt, gent., mortgaged the property (occupier Joseph Miller) to Philip Smyth of Holt, gent, for £300 (MC 2940/6).
There is then a gap in the deeds and it is not clear how the next owner, John Burrell, acquired the property.
On 26 and 27 Dec 1792 by lease and release John Burrell of Letheringsett, clerk, conveyed the property to Nathaniel Burrell of Holt, surgeon, and Thomas Fisher of Holt, gent. (trustee of Nathaniel Burrell), for £700 (MC 2940/7-8).
On 21 Jan 1793 Philip Smyth of Gimingham, gent., assigned to Nathaniel Burrell and James Plaford of Holt, baker (trustee of Burrell), the remainder of the mortgage term for £300 (John Holmes having died without paying the mortgage) (MC 2940/9).
On 10 Nov 1821 John William Burrell of Letheringsett, farmer, nephew and devisee named in will of Nathaniel Burrell deceased, mortgaged the property to Revd John Custance Leah of Holt, clerk, and William Withers the younger of Holt, gent., for £700 (MC 2940/10).
On 13 Jun 1838 there was a settlement between John William Burrell of Holt, gent., and Joseph Muskett and William Muskett, both of Holt, drapers. The Musketts were to act as trustees for Burrell (who was to have an annuity of £40) and for his three children by his late wife Maria Burrell, namely Emma Mary Burrell, Ann Maria Burrell and Frederic [sic] William Burrell (MC 2940/11).
The final deed, dated 20 Oct 1866 (MC 2940/12), was a conveyance and settlement from Frederick William Burrell of Cley-next-the-Sea, yeoman, and several others to William Stimpson of Snoring, farmer, and his wife Emma Mary Stimpson. Frederick William Burrell and Emma Mary Simpson were the surviving children of John William Burrell and his wife Maria, both deceased. Their sibling, Ann Maria Burrell, had died on 19 Nov 1846, aged 15 years.
The freehold parts of the estate were described as: a messuage with barn, stable and outbuildings, in Letheringsett; 10 pieces of land (65a 1r 4p) in Letheringsett and Holt (Tithe Apportionment nos. 94, 95, 105, 107, 554, 555, 584, 586, 591, 592, now in one field); and a piece of meadow land (4a 35p) in Thornage (Tithe Apportionment no. 34). All were in the occupation of George Stimpson.
The deed included an agreement to surrender the copyhold parts of the estate held of the manors of Holt Pereers, Holt Hales and Thornage with the members on the part of Thornage to the use of William and Emma Mary Stimpson.
All the property was to be freed of any monies owing from several recited mortgages.
The final deed includes a plan showing the property to be near the River Glaven and giving Tithe Apportionment numbers.
