PRIVATE PAPERS OF THE HALL FAMILY, UNRELATED TO THE BREWING BUSINESS

Scope and Content

Among the papers found in B15 were several ones which were quite unrelated to the brewing business, but instead concerned members of the Hall family before it settled in Oxford.

The papers include title deeds on property in Gloucestershire (especially Arlington and Cirencester) and Warwickshire, several marriage settlements from the 18th century, and some wills and probate papers, most of which are here because a member of the family was an executor.

It remains unclear why these papers, and no others, were preserved in this collection.
