The history of this property before

of the Victoria County History of

Oxfordshire The deeds in E6 show that

in the 1650s, it was sold to the Barry

family. The last member of the family,

John Barry proved unable to pay his

debts, and sold the land to Christopher

Tilson in 1719. See 12D/31 below for

damaged by damp and some are very hard

to read in places.
