Held by East Sussex Record Office

Contents:
Since it opened, East Sussex Record Office has maintained a collection of 'Additional Manuscripts' for accessions which are not assigned, or are not accrued to existing collections which have, a distinctive alphabetic reference based on the collection's title. The Additional Manuscripts collection is now known as AMS.
Some of these accessions added to AMS have been returned to A2A as free-standing catalogues. The residue are being returned as a series of catalogues, each covering a range of AMS numbers. The summary list below covers all the accessions within that range, with notes against those which are the subject of separate catalogues or which have been transferred to other collections or other repositories. The main body of the catalogue notes only the reference and the fact of the separate catalogue or the transfer.

Related information: Introduction
The archive consists of printed sales particulars of properties in Brighton, Hove, Shoreham and Southwick, from 1916 to 1940. Many are marked up with details of the bidding and sale price, and some also have photographs, plans of the properties, correspondence and other papers. The majority of these documents bear the signature of W R Sparkes (other partners are listed as H N T Jenner FAI and R J J Pugh-Cook).
The particulars were originally stored in five portfolios; the inner side of each inscribed with a table of its contents, listing the property, date and number of the particulars within the portfolio. The number was written in blue pencil in a circle on the outside of each set of particulars and the sequence began again with the next portfolio
In the list which follows, the first element of the reference represents the portfolio, the second the number of the individual particulars. The inscribed leaf of each folder has been retained as the last document in each group, and the list also presents the information from the table of contents for those particulars which have not survived.
The documents were purchased, in two groups, from Bow Windows Bookshop, Lewes, and it is not known how long they had been in circulation on the antiquarian market. It seems certain that a portfolio covering April 1930 to December 1934 was originally present, and a space has been left in the numbering to accommodate it. It is also likely the missing individual particulars were sold singly before the portfolios reached the Record Office.
Henry Jenner (b 1836) first appeared as a house agent in the 1859 Folthorpe's Directory and his premises are given as 22 Regency Square. Both the 1881 and the 1901 census list him as a house agent.
Between 1848 and 1852 Absalom Dell (b 1845), auctioneer, house agent and appraiser, set up his business at 23 New Road, Brighton. By 1862 he had moved premises to 45 Middle Street with a second branch at 39a Ship Street and five years later the business had relocated to 48 Queen's Road, Brighton. The 1881 census lists Edward Absalom Dell as living at this address with his wife. Although the entries in early trade directories list Dell as an auctioneer, house agent and appraiser, his profession on both the 1881 and 1901 census is given as furniture remover, suggesting he was the junior partner when he went into business with Henry Jenner.
The two companies, called A Dell and Sons and Jenner and Son, had formed a partnership by 1873 and set up at Jenner's premises at 22 Regency Square. Throughout the 1880s the company also occupied a number of premises in Church Road, Hove (numbers 28, 22 and 52) but by 1909 the address of the Hove office had changed to 54 Church Road [unclear as to whether change of premises or renumbering]. Between 1933 and 1938 the company closed its Regency Square office and relocated to 33 Preston Street.

Letter from William Holman Hunt to John Crossley of Waldron  amsgg/AMS6623  1894

Former reference: AMS 6623

Source of acquisition: Photocopy given 12 July 2002 (ACC 8615)


Administrative history:
This letter was prompted by Crossley's purchase, at the sale of the belongings of his aunt Martha, widow of Thomas Combe, of the lamp made to the design of William Holman Hunt for his painting The Light of the World (1854).
John Crossley (1839-1900) was the son of John Sidney Crossley (1812-1879), a civil engineer from Leicester, and his wife Agnes (c1806-1881+), née Combe. In 1881 Crossley, his wife and daughter were living at Barrow upon Soar in Leicestershire with his mother, two sisters and five servants; Crossley was described as a still manufacturer. It is clear from his will, and from the report of his funeral in the Sussex Express, that he had a business interest in Vickers Sons and Maxim Ltd, armament manufacturers.
The Crossleys came to Waldron between 1891 and 1895, in the directory of which year John Crossley is listed at Heatherden and his sister Julia Crossley at Holbrook. He died at Heatherden on 13 October 1900, and was survived by his wife Elizabeth and son John Cyril Crossley.
For Crossley's uncle Thomas Combe (1797-1872), Superintendent of the Oxford University Press, a major patron of the Pre-Raphaelite painters and owner of the lamp, see Dictionary of National Biography and 4 below.
For William Holman Hunt (1827-1910), painter, see Dictionary of National Biography.
The copy was supplied by Manchester City Galleries which purchased the lamp and letter in 2001.

Gives a warranty that the lamp recently bought by JC at Mrs [Martha] Combe's sale was that made, to his design, to be painted in his picture The Light of the World; narrative of the manufacture and cost of the lamp; treatment of the picture by the 'bigoted Goths' of Keble College [Oxford], whose council he concludes 'hate the picture because in some way it does not coincide with their idea of the orthodox dogma'; would have been surprised had they bid for the lamp.

Deeds of property in Old Steine, Brighton  amsgg/AMS6625  1784, 1803

Former reference: AMS 6625

Source of acquisition: Documents deposited 28 November 2002 (ACC 8700)


Administrative history:
Both these deeds were found at 9 Old Steine, Brighton, to which the document listed as AMS 6625/1 below relates.
From before 1925 until after 1970, 9 Old Steine was occupied by Thomas Eggar and Sons, solicitors, which between 1970 and 1980 merged with Fitzhugh and Co at the latter firm's offices at 9 Pavilion Parade.
Eggars had occupied 46 Old Steine in 1912, and it seems likely that the document listed as AMS 6625/2 below, which relates to 46 Old Steine, was moved to 9 Old Steine with the firm some time between 1912 and 1925.

Archive of H Goldberg, funeral directors, 15-16 Trafalgar Street, Brighton  amsgg/AMS6626  1923-2002

Former reference: AMS 6626

Administrative history:
Introduction
H Goldberg, funeral directors was established in 1930. Prior to this date the majority of Orthodox Jewish burials in Brighton and Hove were carried out by Attree and Kent of Church Street, Brighton (see ACC 8372). At this period most of the burials took place either at Florence Place cemetery or Meadow View cemetery on Bear Road and were organised by the Joint Burial Committees of Brighton and Hove Synagogues. The archive was deposited by Bernard Goldberg who was involved with the running of the business from the 1950s until his retirement in 2000.
The archive contains records created in the day-to-day running of the business along with papers that reflect Bernard Goldberg's involvement with Brighton's Jewish community. An interview with Bernard Goldberg appears in the January 2005 edition of Sussex Jewish News (AMS 6640/1/1/9).

Administrative history:
Introduction
This property was built between 1827 and 1829 by John Hilton on land which had formed part of the Riding House Field, the area now limited by West Street, Fisher Street, Market Lane and Market Street. It was held as a freehold tenement of the manor of Southover by quitrents of 6d (a barn) and 1s 0d (a croft).
A memorandum of the sale to Hilton is endorsed on the deeds of the former County Music Centre at 26 Fisher Street (R/C 4/481), upon which much of the next paragraph is based.
In 1673 Sir John Pelham sold the field to William Spence, in whose family it descended until 1773, when it was sold by Luke Spence to William Hammond of Lewes St John, tanner; that conveyance contained the first mention of a building called The Riding House. Hammond died in 1780 and on the death of his wife Martha the property descended to their daughters Elizabeth, wife of John Hargraves of Brighton, merchant, and Ann Wimble of Brighton. On the death of Elizabeth Hargraves her share descended to her son John Edwards Hargraves, who early in 1811 sold part of the site to John Dennett and Stephen Steere (see the deeds of the Candle Factory site, DL/D 145/5/4). On 23 and 24 June 1811 Hargraves, a lieutenant in the Sussex Militia, bought the share in the property of his aunt Ann Wimble for £250, and on 24 and 25 March 1812 sold the part of the site on the corner of Fisher Street and West Street to Charles Wille of Lewes, builder, for £315.
The descent of the property after 1866, based on the court books of the manor of Southover, appears at the end of the list.

In 1827 the property was described as:
a piece of land in Lewes St John sub Castro, with 2' 6" laid out for a footpath on its west; N (44' 10"): the rest of the land and a messuage now belonging to Stephen Duplock; S: the rest of the land and a messuage now belonging to Francis Scott; E (15' 4"): the rest of the land, now belonging to Francis Barber Kettle, separated by a wall owned by FBK; W: Fisher Street otherwise Star Lane; with half the party walls on the south and 2" of the walls on the north
On 24 and 25 April 1812 part of the site of a barn or building called the Riding House was conveyed by John Edwards Hargraves to Charles Wille the elder of Lewes, timber-merchant, and his trustee George Wille of the Cliffe, maltster (2).
At some date before 1827 Charles Wille sold part of the land, described as above, to John Ade of Lewes, coach-maker; the purchase-price was paid but no conveyance executed, and Ade sold the plot to John Hilton for £77 10s. On 2 and 3 October 1827 Charles Wille was joined by John Ade to convey part of the property, described as above, to John Hilton of Lewes, builder, and his trustee Henry Apsley Hilton of Lewes, builder. Francis Barber Kettle of Lewes, horse-dealer, the purchaser of the largest portion of the estate, covenanted to produce the deeds of 1812 to Hilton. The deed was witnessed by John Smith, clerk to [William] Cooper of Lewes, solicitor (1-2).
Hilton built a house on the site and on 15 September 1829 leased it for seven years from 29 September at £26 to Ebenezer Shaw of Lewes, grocer, and Abraham Shaw of Isfield. A stable then stood on Kettle's land to the east. The deed was witnessed by William Stone, clerk to King and Gell (3).
On 25 March 1833 John Hilton sold the property, now including a shop, to Ebenezer Shaw of Lewes, grocer, and James Shaw of Southover, grocer, for £475, of which £310 was raised by a mortgage at 5% to William Attwood and Nehemiah Wimble of Lewes, ironmongers, who were given a power of sale. The property on the east had been acquired by Stephen Duplock, owner of the house on the north (4).
Ebenezer Shaw died on 4 April 1857, having by his will of the previous day bequeathed the property to his widow Mary Shaw, who obtained a grant of administration with the will annexed on 12 May 1857. On 1 July 1857 Mrs Shaw conveyed the property to William Guy of Lewes, grocer, for £400, of which £300 was borrowed from Edward Beard and George Molineux of Lewes, esqs, the trustees of the Lewes, Eastbourne and East Sussex Building Society. The house to the north was owned by Lydia Duplock, whose land to the east contained a warehouse; Ann Woolgar owned the house to the south (5-6).
The mortgage was discharged on 3 July 1861, and the following day William Guy mortgaged the property to John Smith, actuary of the Lewes Savings Bank [and possibly the witness to the deed of 1827] for £300 at 5% with a power of sale. In 1866 an abstract of William Guy's title was drawn by Blaker and Son of Lewes (6-7).
On 31 January 1868 it was presented that William Guy had sold the property to Solomon Savage of Lewes, stationer (ACC 2327/3/1/3 p215).
Solomon Savage's death was presented on 26 November 1917. By his will of 29 August 1906, proved on 23 April 1917, he left his estate to his nephews Ernest Lewis Tappin, Arthur King Tappin, Frederick Savage and Henry Richard Stevenson in trust for sale. By 17 December 1917 they had sold the property to George Richard Pratt of Isfield, grocer, draper and butcher (ACC 2327/3/1/4).
In 2004 the inscription FAMILY GROCER in gold letters could still be made out on the front of the property.

Introduction
These documents were donated by the executors of the widow of Barry Adams (d c1982), son of Charles H N Adams, senior partner of Messrs Adams and Remers of Lewes, solicitors, whose partners had acted for the Cripps and Powell-Edwards families, lords of the manor of Novington, and served as its stewards.
The firm also acted for the Lord de la Warr as stewards of his share of the manor of Lewes Borough, explaining the presence of AMS 6629/2/1 below.
Lord de la Warr's predecessor in title had been the Sackville family, Dukes of Dorset, who retained Charles Gilbert, an earlier partner in the firm, as his solicitor. The documents listed as AMS 6629/3/1-2 below were derived from William Figg's survey of the duke's estate in 1799, for which see folio 71 of ADA 51.
The estates of the Lane family of Middleton in Westmeston were inherited by the Fitzhugh family, a member of which acted as steward of the manor of Novington in 1876. This may account for the presence of AMS 6629/4/1 below, which was not however connected with any business enrolled in the manor of Novington.

Administrative history:
Introduction Ronald A Strank was appointed head of Nursing at Bevendean Hospital in June 1968. He held the post until March 1972 when he resigned to take up the post of Principal Nursing Officer at St Helier Hospital, Carshalton, Surrey. The Brighton Borough Sanatorium, as Bevendean Hospital was originally known, was opened by the Mayor, John Blaker, on Thursday, 27 October 1898. It stood on the site of an earlier hospital, rapidly erected in 1881 in the wake of a smallpox outbreak. The new building was planned in 1892 as numbers of patients began to exceed the capacity of the old building which by 1897 was dealing with around 450 patients suffering from diseases such as scarlet fever, diphtheria and tuberculosis. The hospital closed in April 1989 and demolition started in April 1993, the site being sold for housing.

Administrative history:
Introduction
Mrs Levinson sat on the Appeal Committee of PACT during the 1980s, was instrumental in organising the Anne Frank exhibition held at Brighton College in autumn 2001 and currently (2004) is the editor of the Sussex Jewish News.
Link-up and Jewish Life newsletters were produced for the Jewish Community of Brighton and Hove and cover issues relating to education, local events and religious festivals.
PACT was formed in about 1977 after the Brighton Central Free Church organised a conference held at the University of Sussex to establish which elements of the local community were most in need of financial aid. The conference led to the establishment of the charitable company that became known as PACT and which dealt with young homeless and unemployed people.
The Anne Frank exhibition created by the Anne Frank Trust was displayed for one month at Brighton College, Eastern Road. The exhibition, which featured as part of Brighton and Hove City Council's campaign called "Celebrating Diversity", had over 10,000 visitors and was promoted by a number of other events such as a concert at Brighton and Hove New Synagogue (now Brighton and Hove Reform Synagogue), Palmeira Avenue and an antiques valuing day hosted by Bonham and Brooks at Ralli Hall, Denmark Villas.

Some of these accessions added to AMS have been returned to A2A as free-standing catalogues. The residue are being returned as a series of catalogues, each covering a range of AMS numbers. The summary list below covers all the accessions within that range, with notes against those which are the subject of separate catalogues or which have been transferred to other collections or other repositories.

Administrative history:
Introduction
The Brighton and Hove Musical Club was founded in 1922 by chartered accountant Harry Bardesly Chaplain Baldwin and his wife Ena Massingham who was a professional soprano. The inaugural meeting of the club was held at the Princes Hotel on Grand Avenue, Hove. The club had subsequent residences at hotels in Brighton and Hove including the Grand, the Dudley, the Old Ship and the Norfolk.
During its peak in the late 1930s membership stood at around 400 people but dwindling numbers led to the club's disbandment in 2000.

Synopsis of the estate of William Hay of Glyndebourne (1695-1755)  amsgg/AMS6645  [n.d.]

Former reference: AMS 6645

Source of acquisition: Purchased 20 Oct 2003 (ACC 8865)


Administrative history:
William Hay was the oldest surviving son and heir of William Hay the elder (1671-1698) and his wife Barbara, the daughter of Sir John Stapley. He married Elizabeth, the second daughter of Thomas Pelham of Catsfield in 1731, and their children were Thomas (1733-1786); William (1735-1763); Henry (1736-1754), Henrietta (1732-1794), and Frances (1737-1803).
William was a hunchbacked dwarf, and had a distinguished career despite his disability. As well as being an author and poet, he was Member of Parliament for Seaford, 1734-1755, and a supporter of his cousin, the Duke of Newcastle. He introduced measures for poor relief in parliament, but was unsuccessful in getting them adopted. He was a commissioner for victualling the army, 1738-1747, and keeper of the records in the Tower, 1754-1755.
For other records concerning the Glyndebourne estate, see GBN, ACC 5217, ACC 5370, and AMS 5842. Deeds relating to the estate can also be found in PRO C109/15-18 (Morrice v Langham). For further details concerning the career of William Hay, see The History of Parliament, a copy of which is available in the ESRO searchroom.

Contents:
The synopsis is entered in notebook, which has gold patterned covers, and was purchased in a sale at Stride and Son (lot 736). It bears a label on the front cover stating Pedigree 107b Hay, which indicates that it was formerly part of the collections of H R Moulton, 5 Park Hill, Richmond, Surrey, whose catalogue Palaeography, Genealogy and Topography, was published in the 1920s. The records are described on p315.
Lot 782 in the same sale, which was not purchased, included an early 18th century manuscript notebook of Alexander Hay, but it has not been possible to discover whether there was any family connection.

Notebook of William Hay of Glyndebourne  amsgg/AMS6645/1  Oct 1723-Nov 1732

Former reference: AMS 6645/1

Contents:
Pages
1-2 Some account of my Pedigree, as near as I can collect from old Deeds and Memorandums; 11 Oct 1723
3-8 Particulars of his estates of the manor of Gote [Goat] in Ringmer, Glynde and Framfield, and the manor of Belhurst in Etchingham, Ticehurst and Salehurst; includes acreages and field names for the Gote Farm [Goat Farm in Ringmer], Glyndebourne Farm [Glynde], Woods Farm [in Glynde], Chadwicks Farm [? Ringmer], Selmeston Farm, Westons Farm [? Bugsell Farm in Salehurst], Belherst [Bellhurst Farm in Etchingham] and Ebeney Farm [? Ebony in Kent]
9-11 Details of tenures; includes lands held of the manor of Ringmer in Ringmer and Glynde; manors of Sherrington (in Selmeston), Etchingham, Robertsbridge, Glottingham and Ringmer; the farm at Ebony [in Kent] pays no quitrent
12-30 blank
31- 43 accounts for rents received from Henry Briant for Gote Farm [Goat Farm in Ringmer]; Stephen Pollington for Glyndebourne Farm [Glynde]; John Dean, then his brother William Dean, and John Triggs of Southease, for a farm in S+E558nde]; Aug 1723 - May 1732
44-46 blank
47 rents for Chadwick's Farm and mill [? Ringmer], from the widow Chadwick; Oct 1723 - Oct 1724
this property is almost certainly the windmill and land at Millpost Bank, Ringmer, which appears in PRO C109/15-18 (Morrice v Langham). Herbert Hay of Glyndebourne in Glynde leased the site of the windmill for 99 years on 25 Mar 1649. Ann Chadwick, the widow of James Chadwick of Ringmer, assigned her lease of the mill to Edmund Drewitt of South Malling, miller on 8 May 1724, subject to a mortgage to Katherine Rochester. Katherine Rochester assigned the property to William Hay on 10 Jun 1744.
Entries in AMS 6645/1 indicate that Chadwick was in arrears with the rent, and that there was a different tenant by Oct 1724, which seems to tally with the information in the PRO deeds.
48-54 rents from John Weston for Bugsel [Bugsell Farm in Salehurst] and property in Robertsbridge; includes a memorandum concerning a lease granted to John Weston for Bugsel, the town farm, and Peens Wood [part of Westons Farm, previously occupied by WH]; Oct 1723 - Jun 1730
55-58 rents from John Hayward for Belherst [Bellhurst Farm in Etchingham]; Oct 1723 - Jan 1732
59-60 rents from Goodman Paine for Eboney [? Ebony in Kent]; includes a memorandum that WH sold the farm in April 1730; Oct 1723 - Apr 1730
60 rent from John Ford for a house and kiln (late Iggelsden's) [? manor of Ringmer]; Nov 1731
this is possibly the house at Testers Gate in Ringmer, South Malling and Glynde, that was sold by Stephen Iggelsden of Mayfield, surgeon, his wife Lucy and eldest son and heir Stephen Iggelsden the younger, gentleman, to WM in Jan 1728 (PRO C109/15-18)
61 rent from William Barnard for Home Farm; Jan 1731 - Nov 1732
62 rent from John Weston for Bugsil [Bugsell Farm in Salehurst]; Feb - Jun 1732

Administrative history:
Griggs Farm was held as a copyhold tenement of the manor of Streat by a quitrent of 3s 0d, two hens and five eggs. It was purchased in 1658 by William Balcombe, who on the same occasion bought a second copyhold, Grynes, from the same vendor. The deeds of Grynes begin in 1570, whereas those of Griggs date from Balcombe's purchase in 1658.
The property passed to the Langridge family of Lewes in 1770 when, on the death of Samuel Balcombe, it was inheritaed by his only daughter Mary, who had married William Langridge of Lewes, carpenter, in 1755. On William's death in 1801 Griggs passed to his son William Balcombe Langridge, clerk of the peace of Sussex; some documents relating to the estate are present in his archive (LAN).
In 1847 and 1850 the trustees of Langridge's will sold two pieces of land, measuring half an acre and 34 perches, to the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway.
In 1889 the new owner enfranchised the two copyhold tenements which comprised Griggs Farm.
In 1928 the farmland, consisting of 13a 2r 4p, was sold off and Griggs House retained.
In January 1961 these deeds were calendared by Kenneth W Dickins, honorary curator of deeds of the Sussex Archaeological Society, and the list included in the SAS group TR.

On 28 March 1815 the mortgagee William Borrer wrote to William Balcombe Langridge from West Town, [Hurstpierpoint], acknowledging receipt of a cheque for the principal and interest, and stating that his son John Borrer would bring the papers to Lewes the following Saturday (14).

By his will of 21 May 1834, William Balcombe Langridge bequeathed the farm, then occupied by William Faulconer, to his daughter Frances Langridge. The will was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury on 24 May 1845 and on 14 November 1846 Frances, then wife of John Cusson Turner of Brighton, esq, MD, was admitted to the copyhold, whereupon she and her husband vested it in William Vidler Langridge, Thomas Binns Turner and George Cooke, the trustees of their marriage settlement of 26 June 1844 (15).
The trustees sold two pieces of land, measuring half an acre and 34 perches, to the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway; for copies of the deeds, with plans, 17 April 1847 and 5 January 1850, see AMS 5706/9.
The trustees were all dead by 9 November 1868 when the executors of the survivor George Cooke (George William Cooke of Barcombe, relieving officer, and Thomas Walter Cooke of Ninfield, farmer, who had proved his will of 23 June 1849 on 9 July 1867) were admitted. They immediately surrendered to Walter John Turner of the Cavalry Barracks, Chichester, lieutenant in the Third Hussars, who was entitled to the property by virtue of a deed of partition of 29 September 1868, to which the other parties had been [his sister] Rosalie Frances Turner of the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham near Dublin, spinster, G W Cooke and T W Cooke and Frederick William Yeates of 25 Chancery Lane, London, gent (16). For a copy of the deed, see AMS 5706/24.
On 25 March 1869 Walter John Turner, then of the Cavalry Depot in Canterbury, sold the farm, lately occupied by William Hemsley, to the occupier John Gurr of Streat, yeoman, for £690, of which £450 was raised by mortgage at 4% to James Sedgwick of Richmond in Surrey, clerk, and Charles Alfred Woolley of Lewes, gent (17-20).
On 25 June 1874 John Gurr mortgaged the farm to Thomas Bedford of Elstree in Hertfordshire, clerk, for £450 at 4½%, which was discharged on 21 June 1875 (21-22).

John Gurr died on 10 September 1895. By his will of 15 October 1858 he had bequeathed his real estate to his wife Mary Ann Gurr, who proved the will on 11 October 1895. On 29 September 1896 Mrs Gurr, then of Lewes, sold the farm to John Martin Combridge of Little Park in Hurstpierpoint, purveyor of meat, for £790 (24).
On 21 January 1898 John Martin Combridge sold the farm for £786 5s 6d to Alfred Stapleton of Streat, retired licensed victualler. The plan on the deed is annotated for a sale of the farmland and the retention of the house and its immediate surroundings, and a memorandum of the sale off in 1928 (see below) is endorsed (25).
On 14 January 1903 Alfred Stapleton, then of Griggs Farm, Streat, mortgaged the property for £100 at 5% to William Stevens of 26 Marlborough Place, Brighton, gent; the deed was witnessed by F[rank] Bentham Stevens, clerk to Stevens Son and Maynard of Brighton, solicitors. The mortgage was assigned on 24 June 1907 to Henry Summarsell of 54 Ditchling Rise, Brighton, commercial traveller, who assigned it to Jessie Annie Osgood of 3 New Steine, Brighton, spinster, on 21 October 1908. Miss Osgood, then of 130 Beaconsfield Villas, Brighton, reconveyed the property to Alfred Stapleton on 20 August 1920 (26).
On 2 April 1928 Walter Henry Honess and Edwin Williams [perhaps the executors of Alfred Stapleton] sold the farmland (13a 2r 4p, fields 76-79 and part of 80 on the plan) to Joseph Stanley Haydock (25).
In January 1961 the deeds were calendared by [Kenneth W] Dickins, honorary curator of deeds of the Sussex Archaeological Society, and the list included in the SAS group TR. Peter Bunker of Bunker and Co, 9 The Drive, Hove, sent a copy of the list to Colonel G M Jefferis, 32 Park Gate, Somerhill Road, Hove, on 18 January 1961 (27).
The bundle also contains a draft conveyance, drawn by Laurence Legg of 5 Pavilion Buildings, Brighton, of the Blacksmith's Shop at Streat from Arthur Oliver Depree of The Stores, New Road, Crowborough, to Rowland Emett and his wife Mary Emett of Wild Goose Cottage, East End Lane, Ditchling, for £600, executed on 21 Jul 1961. The property, which lay near High Chimneys, Streat, had been conveyed to Mr Depree by Stephen James Wood on 12 April 1956, with a right of way along the occupation road leading from Streat to Spatham Lane, depicted on a deed of 9 December 1920 between Katherine Bothamley, Frederick Crawford Goodenough and Athelstan Arthur Baines, Henry Francis Darwin Gisborne and George Henry Stevens. Two plans of the property are also present, the second stated to be from a conveyance of 24 May 1962 (28-30).

Contents:
The diary of Captain Henry Shiffner, who became the second baronet in 1842, describes travels in Belgium, Germany, Italy, France and Switzerland with his wife Emily (the daughter of Thomas Brooke esq of Church Minshull, Chester). Shiffner was not then on active service in the navy; his last appointment was to HMS Hastings on 7 April 1834. He retired in 1846 and was eventually promoted to vice-admiral in 1857.
Places visited included Ostend, Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Mechlin, Brussels (including the site of the Battle of Waterloo), Namur, Liege, Spa, Aix-la-Chapelle, Cologne, Bonn, Koblenz, Frankfurt, Mannheim, Heidelberg, Stuttgart, Augsburg, Munich, Innsbruck, Verona, Venice, Padua, Ferrara, Bologna, Florence, Genoa, Nice, Avignon, Grenoble, Lausanne, Berne, Lucerne, Simplon, Parma, Naples, Rome, Sienna, Milan, Freiberg, and Geneva. It does not cover the last month of the travels, because it concludes at Geneva in July 1831, and the travellers continued to Paris, returning to Brighton via Dieppe in August 1831 (SHR 1452). Detailed expenses for the tour are listed in SHR 1452.
The diary contains pen-and-ink sketches of Mentone, and a view of the harbour at Genoa from the window of the Hotel Quattro Nazioni, both in Italy.
