Bundle of Papers relating to a Loan to Trafford Trafford

Scope and Content

The bundle contains papers relating to a loan of £1000 made by George Harry Grey (1765-1845), 6th Earl of Stamford, to Trafford Trafford esq of Oughtrington Hall near Lymm. Trafford expressed a hope that the loan, secured by his bond, would be repaid very soon, yet the principal remained unpaid and Lord Stamford continued to receive regular interest payments up to his death in 1845.
