Historic Property Auction Particulars — Mersham 1878

Particulars and Conditions of Sale of 21 Acres of Land and Eight Cottages in Mersham

I recently happened to ‘bump into’ two of the current owners of the cottages when I gave a talk on the history of Ashford Market to the Mersham History Society at The Farriers Arms pub a few months ago.

They asked if I could make a copy for them. Earlier today I carefully removed them from their frame. They are very delicate and sadly the paper tore a little. So I thought I should scan them to save a record for the future.

Here is a link to a PDF version of the full particulars:

P.S. Mr Bedo Hobbs was my great, great great grandfather. William and Bedo Hobbs started W & B Hobbs in 1850.
