The series comprises deeds relating to the purchase of the Octagon Chapel, 1814, mortgages, 1817-1853; trust deeds, 1835-1851, and deeds relating to the purchase of part of the chapel trustee's estate by the London & North Western Railway Company, 1863-1864. The series also includes an assignment by the trustees of the Calvinistic Connection of the Rev. Philip Oliver to the trustees of the Welsh Calvinistic Connection of six chapels and other hereditaments in Cheshire, 4 December 1853.


Arranged in a single file


A number of deeds carry endorsements. Endorsements on the 1853 conveyance of the six chapels include a memorandum of the sale of the chapel and premises at Great Saughall, Cheshire, to George Venables of Great Saughall, master painter and decorator, 1932, and a memorandum of the sale of the school room premises in City Road, Chester, to Fiona Simey, 1978.
The 1978 endorsement is repeated on the L&NWR conveyance of 1864. This conveyance also includes an endorsement explaining that in addition to the L&NWR seal, the deed was mistakenly sealed at Chester Station with the Great Western Railway Company's seal.
