Catalogue of surveys and valuations in the Newcastle (Clumber) Collection (1st deposit), fifteenth century - 1863

Plan of part of Welsh EstatesNe S

Introduction

This series of surveys and related estate papers forms part of the first deposit of the Newcastle (Clumber) Collection (GB 0159 Ne A-X). It relates primarily to the property and estates of the Dukes of Newcastle under Lyne within Nottinghamshire but covers a wider area as estates in Wales and Yorkshire are also represented.

The surveys usually take the form of particulars, terriers or valuations, sometimes with corresponding maps and plans, and might be a single sheet or a larger volume. There are also various estate papers scattered throughout the series including correspondence and many hand written notes, which reflect the rural estate management in Nottinghamshire.

The subject matter covered is largely concerned with valuations of land and property, and records include names of tenants, acreages of land held, the value of the land and the amount of rent paid. The surveys provide a fascinating source of information for local historians and for anyone interested in the history of land use and development.

With a date range from the late 13th century to 1863, the series covers periods of ownership by the Holles family and the Earls of Clare as well as by the Dukes of Newcastle under Lyne. The series has been left in its original arrangement of date order, rather than geographical region.

Also contained within the series is a bundle of seemingly unrelated estate papers which concern the suits and services owed in the bailiwick of Bassetlaw. It appears that the papers have been gathered together for evidential purposes regarding cases brought for the owing of suit and service, not just to the manorial courts, but also to the crown via the Duchy of Lancaster court. Many tenants believed that suit should be owed to one court only, and not both. To help put these documents into context, reference to the legal papers will be necessary.

Extract contains an order to William Rymaydon, the king's escheator in Nottinghamshire, that it was found by inquisition that until his death John Boughton held in fee one capital messuage and diverse lands with appurtenances in Boughton and Clarborough, one messuage and 80 acres of land in Wellom [Welham], and three messuages in Hayton; the messuage, lands and tenements in Boughton and Clarborough were held of the Duchy of Lancaster, with suit service at [the bailiwick] of Bassetlaw twice per annum; in distinction, the remaining lands were held other than of the king.

Notes that John Huntingfeld, otherwise John Saunby, is a blood relative and heir of John Boughton, and is of age; indicates that with the agreement of parliament on 14 Oct in the first year of his reign [1399] he granted and declared that all tenants of the duchy, and of countiels, honours, manors, fees and other possessions belonging to it should be free in right of entry to their heritage after the death of their ancestors and in their tenures as they should be had the high office of king never fallen to him.

Orders Rymaydon to 'remove the king's hand' and meddle no further in these possessions which after the death of John Boughton passed to John Huntingfeld [Saunby].

Copy appears to have been produced for use in a legal case concerning disputed attendance at the hundred court of Bassetlaw and the smaller manorial courts; there are related papers found in Ne L 147-196; case appears to have been put together during the first half of the 17th century.

Ne S 10 20.4.1631 Note by Nicholas Whitmore [Whittmore] detailing trespasses upon the Duchy of Lancaster in the bailiwick of Bassetlaw; 20 Apr. 1631.

Trespasses in this context are not those commonly associated with acts of crime, but those against the Duchy of Lancaster courts and the various other courts to which tenants had to pay fines and owed service to.

Names the individuals who have not paid rents, such as Gervis [Gervase] Wylde of Nettleworth 'for denyeing to pay a rent of 2 per annum for his land in Nettleworth'; also names individuals who have been persuading other tenants not to owe suit of court to the Duchy of Lancaster Court, such as John Jebson of 'Warsopp' [Warsop] for informing against the king's freeholders, dissuading them from doing their suit and for 'persuadinge and drawinge them to other Courts'.

Details that Palthorpe [Perlethorpe] owes service to Elksley [Elkesley] court and should pay every year at Michaelmas; now say that they owe no service but continue to pay the money; no inhabitants appear at the court as they are Duchy [of Lancaster] tenants and of the liberty of Bassetlaw.

Continues with a note regarding a number of freeboroughs including: Norton, Cookney [Cuckney], 'Brantwood House' and Rampton; Norton, Cookney and Brantwood House pay a fee every year but do no service, and is also noted that the Earl of Kingston [upon Hull] tries to dissuade the inhabitants from doing service and says he will protect them; with regards to Rampton [which is Duchy of Lancaster land and of the bailiwick of Bassetlaw] Mr Anthony Ayre pays a fee every year and appears at every court; previously the freeboroughs had paid suite and fines and even a capon at Christmas to the bailiff, but in recent years nothing has been paid and many refuse to do service; notes that Ayre will protect them if necessary.

Ne S 13 1631 (c) Note concerning land and rents at Nettleworth, Warsop and Burton, [Nottinghamshire]; n.d. [c.1631]

With regards to Nettleworth, 3s. is paid yearly, 2s. by Mr Wilde and 1s. by Mr Pott; notes that if 'your Honour' [1st Earl of Clare?] is to look in the long roll there is a 'carut' of land in Nettleworth which is Duchy [of Lancaster land]; some court rolls from Mr Gilby and Mr Feewilliams [bailiff of Bassetlaw?] show that the 3s. annual fee was for a common fine; believes that it is impossible to say whether they have ever had service from them, and notes to query whether Clare should have it or not.

Regarding Warsop, they pay 3/6. per annum, of which Croft pays 19 1/2d. and the [6th] Earl of Rutland pays 5d.; the freeborough does service at every court and is sworn once a year; the freeholders do fealty and service when required as do the resiantes; notes that this has been done at least for the last 30 years but Whittmore believes Clare has proof amongst old records that service has been paid over a much longer period of time.

At Burton, the land is Mr Nevill's; he does not pay any rent and nor does he have a manor there; a freeborough appears and is sworn, and some service was given during the time of Cressye; lately the freeholders refuse to attend, only 1 or 2 of them do so; land is part of the Duchy [of Lancaster] and Barsetlowe [Bassetlaw] but they do not appear to give service anywhere; is also noted that Mr Nevill sometimes hinders anyone trying to attend Barsetlowe.

The author has been identified by the hand and the date is based on similar documents.

Tells of receiving a letter from Mr Marriot and also that he visited the court; felt it was a needless journey for two reasons, firstly 'they' [references to Thomas and Thomas Cauper from Ne S 22] are willing to pay the 5 which the jury fined them [as a deodand] and secondly that the cart and carriage are from the liberty [of Bassetlaw] but they are within the bishops liberty and therefore cannot be distrained; notes the death of Matthew Sansum [by drowning] and writes that Clare may wish to send a discharge for the goods of Sansum which are valued at 11..

Continues with wanting the stewardship at Tickhill if it can be had by any means, or at least a deputation for Mr Robert Royston or John Staffin; the courts in Darbieshire [Derbyshire] should be combined; order to be sent to Parr to get the court house in Elsley [Elkesley, Nottinghamshire] as soon as possible; concludes with a note to have care in the beginning of the next term in order to move the Queen's board for the felons' goods and deodands and the bailiwick of Ultra and Citra Trentham.

Ne S 30 1650 Survey of the common fines and chief rents belonging to the bailiwicks of Ultra and Citra Trentham, and Bassetlaw, Nottinghamshire; 1650

Indicates that the common fines and chief rents were lately leased to the Earls of Rutland and Clare and that both are part of the Duchy of Lancaster and the honour of Tickehill [Tickhill]; land was previously in the possession of Henrietta Maria, the widow of King Charles [I] of England, and is now to be sold by a parliamentary commission.

The common fines and chief rents for both Ultra and Citra Trentham and Bassetlaw have been summarised followed by the perquisites, profits and casualties; total sum of common fines, chief rents and so on is 90.8.6.1/2..

Memorandum at the bottom of page 1 notes that the bailiwick of Ultra and Citra Trentham was devised to the Earl of Rutland who held the surety by lease from the Crown; lease expired about 9 or 10 years ago; the Earl of Clare tried to get the lease renewed but was denied due to a pretence of being granted the land under an order from the queen's court to continue farming, but he had no right to enjoy the land; the courts have granted an order to William Stearbourne, to continue keeping the land until further notice; also an order granted for Thomas Broome to continue as bailiff to the estate.

Note on page 2 that the stewards and bailiffs of the bailiwicks of Ultra and Citra Trentham have usually been allowed 4 as a fee for keeping the courts; continues that Bassetlaw was demised about 10 years ago by the late queen to the Earl of Clare for 60 years; James Lane, steward to the Earl keeps the courts and John Lees collects the perquisites and rents; page 2 continues with a memorandum regarding the farmers of the respective bailiwicks who have formerly claimed in right of their respective bailiwicks to each have a liberty or franchise.

A rental of the common fines and chief rents within Ultra and Citra Trentham follows; places are listed firstly on the North side of the Trent, then on the South side; note at end of rental records that the common fines of the court at 'Codlingstocke' were taken by Gabriel Armstrong, by virtue of Letters Patent from King James; chief rents are still due and payable.

Page 4 notes the common fines due from the manor of Willoughby [Nottinghamshire] followed by a list of townships who have appeared before the courts and paid the particular sums recorded; townships are from Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire; total sum of all common fines and chief rents within the bailiwick of Ultra and Citra Trentham per year is 40.14.0.; continues with a rental of all common fines and chief rents for the bailiwick of Bassetlaw; townships are from Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire; total sum of common fines and chief rents amounts to 30.14.6 1/2 a year.

Ends with an abstract of the profits of the two bailiwicks; total sum is recorded as 90.8.6. 1/2.

Endorsed as being a true copy of the survey returned to Worcester House [London?], dated 6 May 1650 and signed by Thomas Brough.

The last folio has sustained some damage due to its use as a cover sheet; some loss of text has occurred.

The volume is divided into several different sections; the majority relates to the manor of Cromwell.

The third page of the volume also appears to be a later addition and is a particular of Thekers land; notes the location of the land by reference to field names; records the acreage and whether the land is arable or meadow; undated.

The main survey runs from pages 1-37 [paginated]; land in Cromwell is listed under various sub-headings of field names, which may be subsequently sub-divided; headings include: 'Parke [Park] Field', 'the Conyngry Field' [Conyngrye Field], 'Southe Clyffe' [South Cliff], 'Myddell Clyffe' [Middle Cliff], 'Northe Clyffe' [North Cliff], 'Northe Holme Medowe' [Meadow], 'Southe Holme Meydow' [Meadow], 'West Clyffe Meydowe' [Meadow] and 'Commons and Closes'; names of tenants are listed on the left hand side; details of the property are noted, including boundaries and acreages; note that entries become briefer as the survey continues, with only the name of the tenant, the number of lands held, the acreage and an occasional locating feature being recorded; notes if land is freehold or not; sometimes at the end of sections total acreages are noted.

The survey continues with further entries including a note on the arable land of Cromwell situated in Cawnton [Caunton, Nottinghamshire] [p 38]; also a rental of Cromewell [Cromwell] made 31 Mar. 1555 [pp 39-41]; notes on the beast gates held by various named tenants [p 42]; and the North and South side rent of the tenements [p 43].

Pagination begins again after the first survey and continues with a more in depth survey of the area.

Pages 1-16 are concerned with the arable land, meadow and pasture in Willoughbye [Willoughby, Nottinghamshire] and North Carleton [Carlton on Trent, Nottinghamshire] which belongs to or is dependent on the manor of Cromwell; land and property are listed with field names, boundary descriptions and acreages; land is listed under various sub-headings of field names, which may be subsequently sub-divided; headings include: 'Mydell Fielde' [Middle Field], 'Northe Field', 'Southe Field', 'Southe More' [South Moor], 'Myddle More' [Middle Moor], 'Tofte' [Toft], 'Northe More' [North Moor], 'Makill [?] Mores', 'Northe end of Carleton' [Carlton on Trent], 'Sutton Field' and 'Carleton'; notes field names, names of tenants, quantity of land and boundaries.

Pages 17-34 have the name 'Savill' endorsed in the top left hand corner; possibly a reference to the lands of Sir Henry Savile noted by his bailiff, Spure?; pages 17-28 concern the north part of the manor of Cromwell; lists the closes of land with field names and boundaries; continues with the demesne meadows; page 29 is a list of chief and other rents belonging to the manor of Cromwell; tenants are listed by name along with the amount of rent payable; also notes what the arable and meadow lands pay; pages 30-34 deal with the rents of Cawnton, North Carleton and Wylloughbie [Willoughby]; property and land are listed; pages 35-55 have the name 'Hollis' endorsed in the top left hand corner; possibly a reference to the lands of Sir William Holles, noted by his bailiff, Fawcett.

Pages 59-63 deal with the partition of lands in Hendon, in particular the division of one moiety; indicates that the moiety was lately held by John Denselle [Denzel], esquire and according to various writs should be assigned to Sir William Hollis [Holles] and his wife Anne who is one of the daughters and co-heirs of John Denselle and her sister Alice and her husband, William Reskymer; pages 64-65 are a list of 'The Contents of all the lands belonging to a farm in Walsbe [Walesby, Nottinghamshire], and Willoughbe [Willoughby] which Gilbert Baker houldeth of Sir Francis Holles, 1596'; property and land is listed, along with acreages, boundaries, some field names and comments on how good the ground is; land is listed under sub-headings of larger field names which include: 'Holme Field', 'South Meddoes' [Meadow], 'Clay Field', 'Forrest [Forest] Field' and 'Midle [Middle] Field'.

Is concerned that if an arrangement is entered into with Mr Foljambe [for the sale of part of the Worksop Manor Estate] it will take a considerable length of time and that the purchase money for Morton Grange [Morton] must be provided from other sources; money must be provided by 24 Jun.; notes that the [5th] Duke of Grafton would be willing to lend the money.

Worksop [manor?] remains unsettled and Morton Grange has been included to be conveyed to the uses of the family settlement; does not believe that any money arising from Worksop could be appropriated for Morton Grange; also notes that Mr Lewis can hardly advise all he knows about the particulars of the debts, so the accounts should be seen as early as possible.
