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.
