Transfer of the Lordship & Manor of Goldstone, 1720 from Edward Goldstone to his cousin and new son-in-law Edward Pegg, husband of Jane Goldstone 


The transaction by which the entail on the Lordship and Manor of Goldstone was broken and ownership settled on Edward Pegg involved the use of two large manuscripts written on vellum. The first document of the two is dated 13th June 1720. The title states that it is a Bargain and Sale for one year of the Manor of Goldstone and a capital messuage and lands in Goldstone. The first parties are Edward Goldstone, Joanna Goldstone, Francis Goldstone and Edward Pegg, to the second parties William Manlowe and Richard Manlowe. The second document of the two is dated 14th June 1720. The title states that it is a Bond of Release to make William Manlowe Tenant to the freehold in order to sue out a recovery of the Manor of Goldstone and a capital messuage and lands in Goldstone. 

The Bond is signed between (in the first part) Edward Goldstone, Joanna Goldstone and Francis Goldstone, and (in the second part) Edward Pegg, and (in the third part) William Manlowe and Richard Manlowe, and (in the fourth part) Robert Slaney, who was a cousin of both Edward Pegg and the Goldstones. Their seals are all affixed to the bottom of the manuscripts and the Goldstone coat of arms is clearly visible on Edward and Francis Goldstone’s seals. Both documents can be seen below:-
