Creators Parker-Jervis family of Staffordshire; Jervis, Parker- family of Staffordshire

This collection consists of three gifts made by Miss Parker-Jervis in 1944, numbered 45/44, 49/44 and 63/44. These have now been amalgamated under the one number 49/44. Other papers relating to the family may be found in the Hand Morgan deposit. These relate mainly to the Oxfordshire estates at Kingston Blount and Aston Rowant [see D 1798/264-279B, and 384-398]. A few deeds for Staffordshire, with miscellaneous settlements, legal papers, and correspondence are included in D 1798/290-316. For Shenstone Manorial Records see 62/44.
The part of the collection listed here covers the estate at Meaford, Darlaston and Stone and the surrounding district. There are few title deeds, but it is possible that some of the deeds catalogued as miscellaneous may refer to parts of this estate, though no connection can be proved.
There is little material to show the running of the estate, though there are a number of accounts and rentals kept by William Jervis for the period c.1660-1700.
Among the family correspondence there is much interesting material including a number of political letters to John Swinfen (Bundle 83), who was one of the sponsors for a bill to exclude the Duke of York in 1681; also the correspondence of Admiral Sir John Jervis, 1st Earl St. Vincent, (Bundle 91), much of it on naval affairs, giving his opinions on the war at sea and his fellow officers.
The legal papers (Bundles 98-127) are of particular importance because they include briefs, opinions and judgments annotated by Sir Thomas Parker, who was made Chief Baron of the Exchequer in 1742 (Bdls.107-110). There are also some legal notebooks of Swinfen Jervis (Bundle 111). An unusual case is that between some cottagers and the Corporation of Newcastle following their eviction in 1734 after not voting for Earl Gower in the election (Bundle 115). John Jervis of Darlaston was high sheriff of Staffordshire and his papers include some relating to the 1745 rebellion (Bundle 53). Sir Thomas Parker stood for election as member of Parliament for Stafford Borough in 1734, and his election addresses, with poll books and election correspondence, are include in the collection (Bundle 60).
