Scope and Content

The cover of each volume bears the legend "Rough statement of estate expenditure for half year... as sent to Mr Hall" [agent at the Stamford Estate Office in Ashton under Lyne]. The accounts follow the same format as EGR14/20/39-40 above. However, totals in almost all cases are less than those in EGR14/20/39-40, certain entries being omitted here. Entries are made in pencil.

EGR14/22/1 was compiled in a volume of accounts of expenditure for January to July 1865. Contained within EGR14/22/2 are loose half-yearly accounts of wages paid on account of [?the reclamation of] Carrington Moss, for works such as delving, drainage, fencing and levelling, roads, marling, general farming and cropping, and manuring, January to June and July to December 1876.
