Digital images of deeds apparently relating to the Hon. Philip Sydney Pierrepont (1786-1864) of Eversley Hall, Northamptonshire

Administrative / Biographical History

The Hon. Philip Sydney Pierrepont (1786-1864) was the fourth son of Charles Medows Pierrepont, 1st Earl Manvers. In his later years he lived at Eversley Hall, Northamptonshire. These three deeds are a very chance survival, one of which shows his involvement with a debt owed by Ellis Leckonby Hodgson, the owner of Stapleton Park in Yorkshire. None of the deeds have any known connection with the Pierrepont family estates in Nottinghamshire.


The deeds have been arranged in chronological order.

Custodial History

The deeds were deposited at The University of Nottingham via the British Records Association in 2000. Because of their very poor physical condition, access to the originals would not have been possible and would have caused further damage. In 2018 the deeds were flattened and photographed in Manuscripts and Special Collections' digital studio. Access to the deeds is now possible only by viewing the digital images in the Manuscripts and Special Collections Reading Room.

The deeds are part of an artificial collection of material (MS 396) gathered together because the items within the collection have been identified as relating in some way to the Manvers estate or the Pierrepont family.
