LANDS OF THE ESOM FAMILY IN EYDON

Scope and Content

The Esom family bought up several pieces

of land in Eydon, which were eventually

sold in 1757 and 1766. The later history

of the land sold in 1757 may be found in

10D below; the remaining deeds here

concern the rest of the land.

The portion of the land was sold by the

Esom family to Joseph Russell in 1766.

Russell bought other property at Eydon,

which are listed in 7D and 8D, and he

then sold all his lands in 1791 to

Francis Annesley (VIII). The history of

this particular property after 1766 up

to 1791 may be found at 9D.

Other deeds concerning the Esom family

are in SL18 (the Aplin and hunt papers).
