Contents:
This is the forty second volume of Additional Manuscripts Add Mss to have been catalogued in the West Sussex Record Office and it has been compiled, in general, along the lines indicated in the introduction to the first volume in November 1956
The class of Additional Manuscripts embraces all the smaller gifts and deposits of documents received by the West Sussex Record Office, as distinct from the large family and estate collections, such as the Goodwood Mss., or accumulations from solicitors' offices, such as Oglethorpe and Anderson Mss.; collections of official bodies, such as Quarter Sessions Records; or collections from other bodies, such as the Records of the Royal Sussex Regiment, each of which is referred to and quoted by name. The majority of Additional Manuscripts have been deeds of title, though increasingly a healthy balance of a vast range of other original material has been catalogued in these volumes. However, the pressure of the sheer weight of material to be catalogued has meant that since volume twenty nine in March 1983, the catalogues of title deeds, instead of being the detailed calendars that had been prepared until that date, have mainly been catalogued in summary lists, with the emphasis being placed on the property concerned in the transaction, rather than on the parties involved, or the technicalities of the type of legal conveyance being used. From the thirty sixth volume in November 1987, the Accession number of each collection catalogued is given at the head of each separate catalogue
This catalogue includes literary papers, such as the personal papers of Robert Gittings and his papers relating to his biographies of John Keats, Thomas Hardy and Dorothy Wordsworth, 1928-1984 (Add Mss 45535 - 45558) and Sketch Books of Augustus Hare, c.1845 - 1848 (Add Mss 45638 - 45641). There are theatrical papers such as records of Chichester Festival Theatre Society 1960-1989 (Add Mss 45584 - 45590); records of Chichester Festival Theatre, 1960-1989 (Add Mss 45584 - 45590, and 45772 and 45773) and records of Chichester Players, 1934-1977 (Add Mss 45591 - 45600). Records of Clubs and Societies include those of the Sussex Boy Scouts Association, 1931-1939 (Add Mss 44741 - 44759); the Milland Valley Horticultural Society, 1906-1964 (Add Mss 45245 - 45247); records of the 1st. Rustington Scout Pack, 1969-1985 (Add Mss 45525 - 45534); Lancing Choral Society, 1941-1984 (Add Mss 45605 - 45617) and the Music Books of Horsham and Crawley Town Bands, 1903-1936 (Add Mss 45980 - 46010). It lists Chichester Excavation Committee reports, 1970s and 1980s (Add Mss 45123 - 45143); the papers of Major General Cyril Lloyd concerning the establishment of West Dean College, 1969-1973 (Add Mss 45441 - 45477) and a fine collection of papers of the Forrest family, members of the Colonial Service in India, 1857-1983 (Add Mss 45808 - 45887. This appears as a separate catalogue on A2A, 'Forest family' under the from Landlord to Labourer project. The documents range in date from an account roll for Nyetimber Manor, 1435-1437 (Add Mss 44818) to Repair and Conservation information notes for custodians and stewards at Uppark, 1991 (Add Mss 45250)
No index has been provided for this volume, as all the relevant details of this and all previous volumes have been included in the card indexes of persons, places, manors and subjects, which are to be found in the Search Room of the West Sussex Record Office
