Scope and Content

Copy half-yearly accounts of expenditure on the Dunham Massey estate (quarterly for part of 1867). The covers of all items are annotated "Copy". The information contained in the accounts is identical to that in EGR14/20 above. All entries of expenditure carry audit numbers.

The accounts cover the period 1862-1882. However, the pages of all volumes are watermarked "1875" or "1880", and all entries are made in the same hand. The copies were probably made in c.1883 upon the transfer of the estate to the Stamford Trustees.

Items EGR14/21/41-42 are believed to have once existed but are now presumed lost, not being found at the Estate Office.
