H. M. ASTON  [no ref. or date]

The collection known as H. M. Aston consists largely of title deeds and leases of property that was at one time or another held by the Aston family. It should be noted, however, that the collection contains deeds relating to both the predecessors and the successors in title of the Astons. In addition, there are a number of documents which have no connection with the Aston family, so far as can be seen. Though the collection contains wills, family settlements, marriage settlements, and some personal documents, relating to the Aston, it seems to be rather an artificial grouping formed in a solicitors' office, rather than a collection of family muniments.
The collection contains some important documents connected with the Sadler family whose properties in HERTFORDSHIRE were inherited by the Astons. It also contains some deeds and papers relating to the Chetwynds of INGESTRE and GRENDON

H.M. Chetwynd  [no ref. or date]

This collection relates mainly to the Chetwynds of Ingestre, the main exceptions being one document relating to the Warwickshire estates of the Chetwynds of Grendon and Brocton (see Bundle 128) and a group of Welsh and Herefordshire deeds, whose presence here is unexplained. Very little material survives in this collection from the late 17th century onwards, but documents of this later period relating to the Chetwynds of Ingestre and their descendants, the Earls of Shrewsbury, can be found in the Staffordshire County Record Office (D 240).
The title deeds date from the early 13th century to the later 17th century, with a very few later deeds referring to purchases by the Chetwynds, Earls Talbot, and mainly relate to Staffordshire and Warwickshire. The chief places referred to by the Staffordshire deeds are as follows - Brereton, Gratwich, Ingestre, Salt, Hopton, Stafford and its neighbourhood, Bradley near Stafford, Rudge, Mitton, Rule, Church Eaton and Haselour. There are, however, references to numerous other places within the County, particularly in the Blithfield, Eccleshall, Lichfield and Stone areas. Deeds referring to Dordon, Warton, Grendon, Berkswell, Meriden and Alspath in Warwickshire, form a large proportion of the mediaeval title deeds, but, although there are (see below) leases as late as the early 17th century for the Warwickshire properties, there are no title deeds for these properties later than the 15th century, possibly because they passed out of the main, Ingestre, branch of the family in the late 17th or early 18th century. In addition to the Staffordshire and Warwickshire deeds, there are five mid-13th century deeds relating to Ireland, a few to Leicestershire, Shropshire and Derbyshire, a group relating to Monmouthshire (mostly the parish of Llanvihangel Crucorney) and Herefordshire.
There is a good series of settlements and similar material, in particular marriage settlements, from 1490 to 1703, with one earlier (1418) item and deeds relating to the marriage settlement of John Talbot and Catherine Chetwynd (1759, 1785).
The legal papers of the family are represented here by a number of papers relating to disputes over the title to, and status of, Salt Heath in the second half of the 16th century. In addition the legal papers include a petition regarding inclosure at Sandon, 17th century papers giving some information on the conduct of Pirehill Hundred Court, and an exemplification of part of a case arising out of a riot at Stafford at the 1747 election.
Manorial papers survive for several manors, those of Church Eaton, Hopton and Ingestre (with Salt), Forebridge, Barlaston, Tittensor and Blymhill. The last four manors, however, are only represented in a court book of 1561-1566. For Church Eaton there are two engrossed court rolls (1548, 1562), a few draft rolls (1582-1599 with many gaps) and a compotus roll (1467-8). The latter includes also the bad debts for Norton-in-the-Moors (1464). There are court rolls for Hopton manor (1639-50 (with gaps). Ingestre is the only manor for which fairly extensive manorial papers are to be found. The engrossed court rolls extend from 1505 to 1665, but there are only nine rolls, covering some 29 courts; the draft rolls (1469, 1504-1544, 1556, 1562, 1580-1601, 1640) are far more numerous, particularly for the late 16th century.
The estate material in this collection consists mainly of leases, and the majority of these are contained in files of the 16th or early 17th century, relating mainly to Hopton and Ingestre in Staffordshire, and Grendon and Dordon in Warwickshire. The Warwickshire leases contain some references to coal-mining. Some leases will be found in the files of mediaeval title deeds. The rentals and accounts are few: they include two 15th century rentals of Stafford property, some small paper rentals of various dates from the 15th to the 18th century, with no good series.
Between 1732 and 1740 there are accounts for repairs and building at Betley and [...] Hall. The only survey is for Hopton, 1669. Apart from the rentals noticed above, the most important papers of a financial nature are a number of early 17th century bonds to pay sums of money to various Londoners.
The Chetwynds acted as sheriff, deputy lieutenant and as commissioners under various acts (usually subsidy acts) and there are papers relating to these offices, including correspondence and other papers relating to the Staffordshire militia in the late 16th and early 17th century. In addition, there is an agreement between the King (probably Henry VI) and Sir Philip Chetewynde, mayor of Bayonne, concerning equipment of archers, etc., and some 18th century poll books. Certain papers relating to Stafford Borough and School possibly do not belong to this section. On the other hand they may have some connection with the Chetwynds private activities. However, the possibility of their being strays from some other section of the Hand Morgan deposit can not be overlooked.
