Taverham Hall farm letters and other papers

Assorted letters relating to the management of various Micklethwait farms. The main subject of the bundle revolves around Revd. Micklethwait's desire to give up the Taverham home farm, due to what he describes as 'heavy losses. Throughout 1886 and 1887 he is urging Hornor to make arrangements to give up the farm: his Attlebridge tenant, Mrs Ringer, wants to surrender her lease and he does not want to be burdened with another farm where he is losing money. Charles and his son, Charles Jared, urge Micklethwait to keep the farm on as he will lose more if it remains unculitivated and the labourers will be out of work. The suggestion is made by one of the parties to let the farm at a low rent but a draft letter (probably CH) suggests this will encourage other tenants to ask for reductions, as if Micklethwait can't get his expenses from his own farm, how can they from theirs? In a letter to his father in Aug 1888, Charles Jared suggests a change of manager would help, as the current bailiff, Dennis Gayford, is not capable. He recommends himself for this role, when writing to Micklethwait's solicitor in the same month.
In 1889 he claims to Young that Micklethwait asked him to perform this duty and agreed to pay him a salary, at the suggestion of his father, but Charles Hornor claims that this is untrue and that Charles Jared ' is not animated with any friendly feeling to the Taverham Estate.'
Also included in this bundle are several letters relating to the vicar of Westleton's request to have a stove put in the Chancel, sales particulars for farms and land in Hickling and Sutton ('Samuel Howard's Property') and a small bundle of letters on various estate matters.
