PROPERTY IN MIDDLE ROW, MARKET SQUARE, WITNEY

Scope and Content

These papers were given to Oxfordshire Archives in 1989 by an unknown donor via the offices of the Victoria County History, and assigned the Accession Number 2996. D/18 below suggests that the collection may have come from a solicitor.

All the documents concern a house in Middle Row, Market Square, Witney, which was leased for 1000 years in 1588. Many of them are connected with a court case of 1747/8, when the then tenant of the house refused to repay a mortgage and was taken to court by his creditor.

Catalogued in October 1995 by Robin Darwall-Smith.
