Copy of inspeximus of a Chancery Decree  1 FANE 1/2/2  1 July 1629

Paper, 6pp.

Contents:
Decree confirming articles of agreement of 19 Feb. 1628/9 between the lords, tenants and freeholders of Fulbeck (named) and Lyon Ellis, clerk, rector of Fulbeck whereby, in pursuance of the inclosure made about seven years before of all the Low Fields and grounds in the parish of Fulbeck from the east end of the Ings or meadows on the east side of the town to the uttermost parts of the parish westward and the allotment of the Heath Field and heath ground in the parish, it was agreed that the rector should have certain plots in lieu of his glebe lands and commons out of the inclosed grounds and should accept a rate tithe of 12d. an acre in lieu of tithe from all the enclosed grounds. The rector was to continue to have tithe in kind from the Heath Fields and heaths of Fulbeck. However such of the lords, tenants, and freeholders who in any year should have sowed with corn 6 out of 24 parts or more of all their heath grounds on St. James's day, so that at least 300a. should be sown with corn on the Heath Fields or heath grounds, should be acquitted from all tithe wool and tithe lamb for their sheep depasturing on the said grounds.
Recites bill, answer, and information, the lords, tenants, and freeholders (named) v. Lyon Ellis, clerk, rector. Recites that before the decree confirming the articles of agreement was signed by the Lord Keeper, a petition was exhibited by Thomas Hurst, rector of Long Leadenham showing that the rectors of Leadenham had ever received tithes out of lands in Fulbeck, but that since the enclosure Lyon Ellis had threatened some of the parishioners with suits if they paid tithes to Hurst. This decree, therefore, was not to be prejudicial to Mr Hurst and his successors for any tithes which rightly belong to the church of Long Leadenham.

Contents:
His pleasure at releiving such a long account of farming prospects in England. Is sorry he cannot report better prices as he believes that England can grow corn, cattle and sheep as cheap as anyone and cheaper than America. Reports on the soil and agriculture of the Sudan. Describes the straw huts in which they are living. The heat. They expect to leave in about ten days, going by boat to Abu Fatmah, about 35 miles, and then marching 150 miles to join the railway at Halfa. Thinks Thinks they ought never to have come to this country, as now they are leaving all who have done anything to help them know that they will have their throats cut as soon as the British go, and so large numbers are emigrating. "It only shows what a wretched mess this government always puts us into. The disgusting part of this campaign has been that we are returning having done no good to anyone - & then to think we only just missed recieving Gordon - as had Sir Chas. Wilson only got to Khartoum two days earlier than he did, I feel quite sure the place would never have fallen - & we should have come home with flying colours instead of like whipped hounds".

Agrees that it would be a very great mistake for them to take £24,000 out of really good investments and invest, it on a second mortgage of the Ashby estates, with a certain diminution of the income, in order to secure a very contingent benefit to him.

Peck relates that because of the many lawsuits Thomas de la Laund had with the Knights Hospitallers over Ashby "he was forced to rummage all the evidences he had by him, concerning either that place or his own family, & to take copies of them all with his own hand, transcribing them into a thin Folio Book for his own use upon those occasions, & that book coming afterwards to the hands of Nevile King Esq. of Grantham (a Gent. whose learning is equal to his good nature, and whose good nature is exceeded by none) he was so generous as to oblige me with the use of it.
Relates that Edward King, being a prisoner in the Tower of London on March 1665 "transcribed some things from the records there relating to the Knights Templars, all which are, with due acknowledgement to his memory for so doing, above inserted in their proper places."

Letter from [Sir] G[ilbert] Talbot to [Sir Francis Fane] from Lacock  1 FANE 3/1/A/5  7 March 1684

Contents:
Recalls that he having told the King how much the earl of Shrewsbury's family had suffered through King James cutting off the entail of his estate, the King promised that if ever he returned to England "he would doe somewhat toward satisfaction to the family". This earl of Shrewsbury's father asked the writer to find out something for him to ask. The writer pitched upon the 6000 acres, which by an Act of Sewers was allotted to the King. The King gave it to Lord Shrewsbury, who gave the writer 1000 acres for his good offices. The earl of Bristol, then Secretary, pretended that the King had given him a precedent grant of the 6,000 acres, but upon discourse, the earls came to an equal division. The earl of Shrewsbury sold his 2500 acres to Ned Russell. They endeavoured without success to have their grants confirmed by Act of Parliament. Thinks they assented that the earl of Bridgwater should have a fifth part, because of his opposition and claims. Agrees that the time has come to proceed with a Commission of Sewers. Believes the country will not be forward to oppose it by not, as they did Sir William Killigrew's.

Another 1000 acres was to be set apart to defray the charge of draining and reparation of it for ever. The earl of Shrewsbury was to have the other 6,000 acres, until the earl of Bristol pretended a former grant, when the earls agreed to divide the 6,000 equally. "The E. of Shrewsbury finding the opposition that Sir Robt. Carre and Sir Anthony Erby made in the Commons, sold his 3000 to Ned Russell for 1500 li and I think the E. of Bristoll did the like".

(2) Dame Ann Fraiser of Edinburgh, Scotland, widow, the sister and the other of the two coheirs-at-law of Henry Heron, and one other of the devisees in his will.

(6) Alexander Hamilton of Lincoln's Inn, gent., and Charles Baldwyn of Lincoln's Inn, gent.
Recites: A. that Henry Heron, being indebted to divers persons in considerable sums of money, made his will on 9 April 1726 in which he ordered that a handsome monument should be erected over him costing £100 at least. He devised his capital messuage called Cressey Hall, and his manors of Surfleet and Heckington and his lands etc. in Surfleet, Heckington, Gosberton, Quadring, and Weston to John Nicholas esq., Stephen Barnes, esq., since deceased, Thomas Barnes, gent., and Nicholas Hall, gent. and their heirs. They were to hold to the use of Francis Fane for his life, then to the use of the trustees (above) during the life of Francis Fane, upon trust to support the contingent uses, but to permit him to receive the profits to his own use for life; and after his death, to the use of the first and every other son of Francis Fane in tail male; and in default of such, to the use of Dame Ann Fraiser, then wife of Sir Peter Fraiser, during the term of her life; and after her death, then to the use of Patrick Heron the elder for his life, remainder to the trustees during his life to preserve contingent remainders, remainder to the first and every other son of Patrick Heron in tail male. In default of such issue, he gave the said lands etc. to Nicholas Hall, his heirs and assigns for ever. He gave to his wife Abigail Heron the use of all his pictures, household goods, furniture and plate that should be in his house at Cressey Hall at time of his death for term of her life only. He gave various legacies. He appointed Francis Fane his executor. He died on 10 September 1730, without issue, leaving Abigail Heron his widow and Dame Ann Fraiser, the sister of Henry Heron, and the said Francis Fane the eldest son and heir of Dorothy Fane, deceased, one other of the sisters of the said testator, his heirs at law. Francis Fane proved the will and possessed himself of his personal estate.
Recites that the personal estate not being nearly sufficient to pay his debts, legacies, and funeral charges, John Brown, Lot Mael, Richard Calthrop and John Chamberlain, several of the creditors of Henry Heron, on behalf of themselves and the other creditors and all other the legatees named in the will on 3 May 1731 exhibited their bill in Chancery against the said Francis Fane, executor, and against Abigail Heron his widow and against John Nicholas and Thomas Barnes, the surviving trustees and against Dame Ann Fraiser, who was also one of the testator's coheirs, and against Patrick Heron the elder and Patrick Heron the younger and against Benjamin Hoar and Henry Hoar and also against Jane Hoar, the latter three being executors of Henry Hoar esq. then deceased, who had a mortgage on part of the testator's estate for £3,000, and against Thomas Crawford and Elizabeth his wife, Benjamin Ingram and Henry Heron an infant (Benjamin having an incumbrance upon the testator's real estate by bond and judgment for securing certain annuities to Elizabeth Crawford and to Henry Heron the infant). They prayed for an account of the testator's, real and personal estates, and if the personal estate fell short of paying the testator's debts and legacies, then to have a competent part sold for the purpose. The cause was heard on 11 Dec. 1732 and the matter was referred to one of the Chancery Masters to see what was due to the defendants, the executors of Henry Hoar, for principal and interest on his mortgage, and that Francis Fane should come to an account for the testator's personal estate come to his hands. It was decreed that if the testator's personal estate was insufficient to meet his debts and legacies, then so much of his real estate as should be sufficient should be sold to the best purchaser.
B. That afterwards Abigail Heron, the testator's widow, died, whereby her estate in jointure fell into possession. By an order dated 15 Nov. 1734 it was ordered that the personal estate of the testator, specifically devised to Abigail Heron his widow, for her life, should be sold with the approbation of the Master. If the same, together with the personal estate of the testator, should not be sufficient to pay his debts, the Master of the Rolls ordered that Francis Fane ought to pay the interest due to the executors of Henry Hoar on his mortgage, since the testator's death and to keep down the interest during his life.
C. Master Spicer's report on the case, dated 9 Aug. 1736, in which he certified that he had taken an account of the testator's personal estate not specifically devised which had been received by Francis Fane, and had set forth the particulars and values (£902.7.3½d.); that he had proceeded to take an account of the several sums which Francis Fane had laid out for the funeral and for several of the testator's debts and legacies, and had given him credit for £750 for the value of the annuities; that he had set forth an account amounting to £1909.Os.4¼d. which exceeds the amount received by the executor; and that he had set forth a particular of the debts and legacies, amounting to £5081.ls.01/2d. Total of the testator's debts, legacies, and funeral charges unpaid: £6087.1 1/4d. Costs taxed totalled £581.16s.3d., which brought the total of debts to £6669.10s.4 1/4d. Persons accepting mortgages of the estate were to pay the principal to Fane, who was to distribute it amongst creditors and legatees.
D. That the pictures, household goods, furniture and plate specifically devised to Abigail Heron for life, being very old and worth little to be sold, but being suitable to the mansion house, Dame Ann Fraiser and Patrick Heron, to whom the estate is given in case of the death of Francis Fane without issue male, have agreed with Francis Fane that the same shall not be sold but shall all remain at the said messuage and shall be delivered to such person who shall be entitled to the said messuage after the death of Francis Fane. By an order of Chancery dated 26 July 1738, it was ordered that Francis Fane should be at liberty to waive the receiving of the £750 for the value of the annuities, that only £5919. 10s.4 1/2d. should be raised by mortgage, and that the agreement about not selling the goods from Cressey Hall should be confirmed.
E. That Francis Fane has borrowed £3,000 of William Hamilton of Lincoln's Inn, esq. and Margaret Lilly late of Richmond, Surrey, and now of Shelley, Essex, widow, which has been paid to Benjamin Hoar and Henry Hoar in discharge of the principal money due on the said mortgage, and by a deed of even date Benjamin Hoar and Henry Hoar have assigned to William Hamilton and Margaret Lilly part of Henry Heron's real estate previously in mortgage to Henry Hoar. Therefore now only £2919.10s.4 1/4d. remained to be raised by mortgage, which William and John Edwards have agreed to advance.

Recites that the testator purchased and partially stocked the farms in Cape Colony, shortly before his death, with an outlay of about £8,000 and anticipated therefrom a large increase to his estate.

Bill of complaint in Chancery  1 FANE 5/19/10  March 1875

Contents:
The Hon. Spencer Cecil Brabazon Ponsonby Fane plt. v. William Dashwood Fane and Charles Fane, defendants
Lady Georgiana Fane died possessed of an estate at Brympton, Som. (1235 ac.), annual rental about 23,000; of an estate at Nassington, Northants. (54lac.), annual rental about £900, and an estate in Prince Edward Island; and of personal estate worth £16,363.16.6, with plate and jewelry bequeathed as heirlooms or specifically bequeathed worth £12,121. The Brympton and Nassington estates are subject to mortgages for the principal sums of £32,076 and £18,111.8s. respectively, and the annual interest amounts to £1303.8s. and £765.11.4. The Brympton mansion, being on a large scale can only be kept up at considerable expense. The beneficiaries under the will have therefore presented a petition to Chancery for selling the Nassington estate and applying the proceeds of sale in discharge of the incumbrances on the Brympton estate. Expedient also to sell the plate and jewelry settled as heirlooms to help discharge mortgage debt and enable plaintiff to reside at Brympton.
Difficulty of defendants in selecting from testatrix's jewelry in order to carry out bequest to earls of Westmorland. Difficulty in deciding which of the diamonds shall be considered heirlooms.
The plaintiff prays that the trusts of the will and codicil may be carried into execution and her estate administered under the direction of the Court.

Letter from S. Ponsonby Fane to W.D. Fane  1 FANE 5/19/11  20 February 1875

Contents:
The Chancery suit for permission to sell Nassington and the heirlooms moves so slowly that he sees no possibility of giving him a positive answer as to Brympton before the time Fane needs to give notice to his present landlord. Therefore he must abandon the hope of having him as tenant. Will try to live there in a hugger mugger way for a couple of months, and let it for hunting in the winter.

Include:
1. Charles Fane to W.D. Fane as to whether they can save Apethorpe now that Faber has commenced foreclosure proceedings.
17 Aug. 1897.
2. Same to same. Asks for his answer as to how much he can lend so that they can make an offer to the mortgagee.
16 Sept. 1897.
3. Draft of W.D. Fane's reply, in hand of W.V.R. Fane. Various queries. Must oppose more than £10,000 being applied to the proposed purpose. Could not Captain Soicer be induced to join in?
22 Sept. 1897.
4. W.V.R. Fane to his father. "It seems a hopeless case, and we can console ourselves that you having saved one family estate from being sold, it is some one else's turn this time".
24 April 1898.
5. Particulars of Apethorpe estate with proposal for purchasing the property, conveying it to trustees, and executing a new mortgage. April 1898. In hand of W.V.R. Fane.
6. Copy, Greenfield and Cracknall to Edmund Royds, solicitor. Mr. Faber will accept £117,214.16.4 in full instead of £129,214.16.4, but beyond this he cannot go.
8 Feb. 1899.
7. Copy, W.D. Fane to C.T. Fane. Cannot provide more than £10,000 for the Apethorpe enterprise. Knows that the income Willie (W.V.R. Fane) will derive from the £60,000 and more invested in the Fulbeck estate, to save it from passing to strangers, will leave him poor for the position he ought to fill.
11 Feb. 1899.
8. Earl of Westmorland to W.D. Fane. Thanks to him and Mr Charles for their great kindness and sympathy. Draft reply by W.D. Fane.
16 Feb. 1899.
24. T.C. Mills, solicitor, to W.D. Fane concerning the payment of duty on his estate and the position of the trustees.
24 April 1899.
44. Cutting from The Times re the earl of Westmorland v. the New Sharlston Collieries Company Ltd. in the Court of Appeal.
9 June, 1899.
69 C.T. Fane to W.V.R. Fane. Is glad he has consented to the further advance of £5000 on the Apethorpe property in conjunction with Spicer and himself. Hopes the idea of saving Apethorpe from the bailiffs will now be successfully accomplished. "At all events, we have done all that can be achieved - and the dear old place, and its contents cannot now be made answerable for any fresh debts".
22 June, 1901
70 F.W. Fane to W.V.R. Fane. Wants to have a talk with him about Apethorpe, as he believes there is a very good chance of £200,000 being offered for the property in a few days time. They have never put the property in the market, and the offer will be made privately. Was rather thunderstruck at the idea of selling, as was under the impression that the whole object of the trust was to save the place and land for the title.
18 Nov. 1903
71 Copy of W.V.R. Fane's reply. When the settlement was made in 1899 and the £90,000 lent, it was all done with the intention of keeping the place in the family, and with the hope that the holder of the title might eventually be able to live at Apethorpe in ease and dignity. This hope has now disappeared, and as the price offered will five the earl a considerably increased income, he will not withhold his consent.
23 Nov. 1903
73 Earl of Westmorland to W.V.R. Fane. Vexed that he must sell Apethorpe, but there is, in his mind, no two questions about it. The future is very black. With Apethorpe sold, there will be £70,000 to invest at 3½% per cent and about £15000 per annum from Yorkshire. To make Apethorpe a payable estate, one ought to spend £80,000 upon it.
24 Nov. 1903
74 Draft reply by W.V.R. Fane. Realizes that he has made up his mind as to the advisability of accepting Mr. Brassey's offer for Apethorpe. At any rate his father and Mr. Charles Fane, if they were alive, would have the satisfaction of knowing that they had helped to secure a better income for him.
25 Nov. 1903
75 Earl of Westmorland to W.V.R. Fane. What a dreadful position his would be if Apethorpe did not let again and Sharlston was to depreciate, and if more farms were to come into hand at Apethorpe. "With Apethorpe purchased by a nice man like Brassey everything will be well cared for and I shall be in a position to educate my children and have a small home somewhere".
26 Nov. 1903
76 W.V.R. Fane to earl, draft. Offers for purchase of pictures and armour from Apethorpe.
28 Dec. 1903
79-83 Letters concerning sale of Apethorpe pictures, 1904.
