The history of this property before
1637/8 is discussed on p.156 of Vol. VI
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
the later history of the land.
Many of the deeds in 12D have been
damaged by damp and some are very hard
to read in places.
