Here is an important group of 3 folded antique vellum official documents which all relate to John Francis Buller Esquire being the landowner of SOUTH FRIENDSHIP MINE in the parish of Mary Tavy in Devon.
First document is dated 25th March 1875 and its between John Francis Buller Esquire to Alfred Lanyon Esquire ... Duplicate Grant of several Leats or Watercourses for 21 years Rents and they are total £120:16:0.
And below the line on the same document ...dated 9th Novemeber 1881 the same John Francis Buller esq to the same Alfred Lanyon esq duplicate further grant of leats & watercourses.... this document has 4 pages of vellum with a really good red wax seal at the bottom on the front page with Alfred Lanyon signature....typical of all this sort of document.. they are hand written and easy to read... with the official blue and orange embossed paper seals which have the small cut silver sheet in them too....the first sheet has the name of the writer of the document... H HORNE, 7 Warwick Court Grays Inn.... this folded document is 26 inch x 22 inch.
The other 2 documents have the same date... 10th November 1881, both being different .... John Francis Buller Esquire to Messrs John Henry Murchison & John Daw ...which is a Grant of several leats or watercourses for 21 years ...and the rents come to £130:16:0.....this document has 7 sheets of vellum with the similar official paper seals with silver sheet embossed costing 5/- shillings this document to write....and at the bottom of the front sheet it has 2 red wax seals and signatures of Murchison & Daw...it has also got the signature of Frederick Daw Mary Tavy Devonshire Mining Engineer.
The third document is between the same named men as above and its in relation to Mining Sett of South Friendship Mine in the parish of Mary Tavy Devon... term 21 years rents and detailed.
This document in my opinion is more interesting as it has 5 pages and the signatures and seals of Murchison & Daw again with a coloured in PLAN of the referred to area of the document.. has field numbers, the river , roads and places ..scale is in chains. ..named places include WHITESTONE - PETERTAVY - BRICK WALLS ...this plan is 16 inch x 11 inch.
Really interesting reading on the documents about the different minerals and place names , field names and rivers etc.. as well as tennants too of different areas.
These 3 documents will be sold as 1 lot.. not split up and please DO NOT buy them and copy them and then want to send them back ...I would strongly advise you coming to see them if you are in two minds of what you are getting. ...CASH ON COLLECTION if you pick them up....NO returns on documents like this.
Someone did say that documents like this should only be £10 - £100 each ...well yes some documents are £10 - £100 each as I buy and sell plenty.. these in my opinion are worthy of MORE so that is why they are priced thus....I am negotiable and as I said the buyer really should be looking at them first if they dont know what to expect....as I will not accept returns on documents, ephemera or photographs etc.. too many folks think they can buy them, copy them and send them back..NO you cannot do that !!.. I've heard every excuse for returning items.
These are a good lot for the local historians or specialist copper - tin - lead - silver mining museum archives too.
