1719 Legal Petition to the Court of the Exchequer of Pleas This is a 27 page handwritten document, a submission to the Court of the Exchequer under Sir Thomas Bury, and another Judge whose name I cannot decipher. This court dealt with revenue disputes, and this petition, from John Richardson of Kidbrooke, Kent claims unpaid tithes from several named farmers for several years at £40 a year. He claims to have inherited the right to these tithes from his father. It seems that the tithes were associated with a rectory or parsonage, the living being granted by Elizabeth Harvey, wife of John Harvey, and later from Ralph Earl of Montagu to William Harvey, father of John. The document contains interesting details of the crops grown on the disputed land. The document is foolscap size, 15 x10 inches (38 x 25.2cm). The pages are written on one side only and are held together with a string tie at the top. Each page carries two 1 penny duty stamps. The first page is torn, and page 27 has some repairs along the edge. There is a final, fragmentary page, and the document is not quite complete. A unique and interesting legal document, which would repay a full transcription.
