Deeds and Charters

 

In Shrewsbury Record Office there are fourteen volumes entitled MSS Calendar of Deeds and Charters. These volumes contain a reference to various documents kept by the Shropshire Archives and some are very old. They mainly relate to legal matters such as land transactions and marriage agreements. The text in these volumes summarises what the deed is all about, although they are not completely transcribed. They show the legal side of life of some of our ancestors. A few examples follow:-

 

Vol II no 1319 (Purchase from James Coleman)

 

Articles of agreement dated May 16th 33 Chas II between 1) Joyce Taylor of Shrewsbury Widow and John Hollings of do. Doctor of Physic 2) Richard Muckleston of do. Tanner relates to the purchase by Muckleston of certain oak trees and saplings growing upon six acres of woodland part of Bickley Wood in Bickton – reserving the rootes or stoles and such of the hopefulest younge oaken jolantes, standles, saplings or waggerson each acre as law reserves.

 

It was the custom to indicate the year by the number of years the sovereign had been on the throne therefore this deed was written in the 33rd year of Charles the Seconds reign i.e. 1681. do. was a common way of indicating “of the same place” therefore in this document as Shrewsbury was the place mentioned, every do. which followed until another place was entered would refer to Shrewsbury. The Richard Muckleston mentioned in this deed was born in 1630 and died in 1696, he was left the Pen y Lan estate in Oswestry in his unmarried brothers will but Richard apparently chose to live and carry on business in Shrewsbury.

 

Vol II No 1771

 

Be yt knowe unto all men etc

 

John ap Richard of Oswestry son and heir of Richard barbour, skinner sells to Hugh Muckleston do. Mercer all the implements and household stuff remaining in the house of his mother Elizabeth verche Robert Widow (dec) that is to say etc.

 

(List of items follow)

 

Dated 21st Mar 8 Jas 1 [8th year of the reign of James the 1st – 1610]

 

We obviously had an early version of a house clearance expert in the family but all did not go well in family business as the Deed number 2948 will show

 

Vol II No 1776

 

Indenture dated Nov 5th Geo II 1737 between 1) Hugh Muckleston of Keel (Llangedwin Co Denbigh) Gent and 2) Richard Muckleston of Shrewsbury, Mercer. Lease for a year of a messuage in Oswestry (in Cross Street).

 

Vol III No 2189

 

Adam Lord of Muckleston witness to a deed between William and Margaret Eton Dunn to Hugh son of Hugh de la Hulle re a tenement. (No date).

 

Vol III No 2883

 

Indenture dated June 7th 1843 between 1) Thomas Carline of Shrewsbury, Sculpton; 2) John Hall, John Muckleston and William Burr all of ditto 3) Creditors, Conveyance of the equity of Redemption of and in Carlines Freehold and Leasehold property (not named) in trust to sell and pay debts (Long Deed).

 

Vol III No. 2929

To have etc. Dated Feb 2nd 33 Eliz [1590]

 

ap means son of. This is obviously on inheritance issue. Little is known about these branches of the family and the deeds help to give a clearer picture – for example this is the first indication that Edward was a Burgess in Oswestry. Edward and Richard are distant cousins. Jo is often used as a shortened form of John or Joseph, prior to finding this deed we were not aware of this Jo: son of Edward who was son of Hugh Muckleston. Jo: had obviously died and the deed is related to the distribution of his estate. 

 

Vol III No 2937

 

“To all Xrian (Christian) people etc” Reciting assignment by Thurstan ap Thomas of Oswestry (31 Eliz) to Roger Edwardes of Ditto, deceased, of a mortgage on a croft in the franchise of Oswestry by Thomas ap Robert alias Muckleston and Ales (Alice) his wife of which the interest devolved on Sara, late wife of Roger, now wife of Richard Griffiths, who (35 Eliz) assigned it to Hanmer – John Hanmer assigns the same to John ap Edward Muckleston. Dated 20th April 38 Eliz 1596.

To save the latter harmless of and from Thomas Baker of Sweeney Gent touching an obligation in £200 for payment of £108 etc., - conveyance of a messuage and lands in Sweeney and Llanvorda with proviso.

 

You would assume from this limited piece of information that Hugh and his friend were in debt to Thomas Baker and that Edward came to the rescue by selling some property to Thomas Baker to help them out. Edward born circa 1575 was the older brother of Hugh whose date of birth is believed to be between 1576 and 1578. £200 in 1630 is the equivalent of around £18,000 in 2009.

“Sciant omnes tam presents quarn future” William Hole and Leucia his wife at the request and consent of William Banaster son and heir of Leucia give etc to Roger son of Peter in frank marriage with Alina daughter of Leucia 2 virgates in Haulston, to wit that virgate which the Lady Aveline held and that which Richard son of oliver held, to have etc Rent 4d.

No date (very early) seals gone.

 

The virgate was a unit of land area measurement used in medievalEngland, typically outside the Danelaw, and was held to be the amount of land that a team of two oxen could plough in a single annual season. It was equivalent to a quarter of a hide, so was nominally thirty acres. A ‘virgater’ would thus be a peasant who occupied or worked this area of land, and a ‘half virgater’ would be a person who occupied or worked about 15 acres (61,000 m2).

I always thought that Reginald was a fairly recent christian name, clearly I was mistaken!

Manor of Stokesay, Court Baron of William Lord Craven held 30th Nov 1770 before Jo. Muckleston, Gent, Steward.

 

Stokesay Castle, located at Stokesay, a mile south of the town of Craven Arms, in southern Shropshire, is the oldest fortified manor house in England, dating to the 12th century. It is currently in the hands of English Heritage. It is a Grade I listed building. During King Charles I reign it came into the ownership of the Craven family and was used as a supply base for the King's forces in the area, based in strength at nearby Ludlow Castle in the early stages of the English Civil War.A skirmish took place at the castle during the English Civil War, in which Stokesay was handed over to the Parliamentarians after a short siege without a pitched battle (in which it surely would have been severely damaged).Stokesay was lived in as a farmhouse and barn until the early 19th century. In 1869 it was purchased by John Darby Allcroft, a Worcester glove manufacturer and Member of Parliament, who recognising the value of the building's history and architectural features set about restoring and maintaining it while he also had Stokesay Court built nearby.
