About Me

Quite simply, I love collecting old historical documents!

I have collected a range of historical documents, dating from between the 17th Century to the 20th Century, from all parts of the United Kingdom.

The historical documents that I own are of importance and interest to genealogists, family historians, and local historians.

This blog is my attempt to make my collection of historical documents freely available to anyone with a passion for studying genealogy or history!

All I ask in return is fairness and that you comply with the terms & conditions of using the copyright material contained in this blog.

Mrs Nickson

Dear Mr Monck,

Mrs Nickson has paid the £3500 which she borrowed from the Rock Insurance Trustees. I have been in communication with Mr Randles with reference to the re assignment of the securities vested in you  & Mr Randles under the Trust Deed of 31st March 1881. There is no reason now why you & Mr Randles should not re-transfer these investments to Mrs Nickson. I have called Mrs Nickson's sol'rs {Solicitors} (Messrs Kilson & Co Torquay) attention to the fact that Settlement Estate Duty attaches to the funds on the death of Mrs Nickson & I trouble you with a copy of the letter I wrote to {illegible} the Controller of Inland Revenue on the matter together with his reply. I also send you copy of Messrs Kilson & Co's letter to me of the 24th also offering to give their indemnity against the payment of this duty as the Duty if committed now, will amount to a large sum I shall be glad to know from you whether you feel disposed to accept Messrs Kilson's indemnity. I think Mr Randles feels disposed to do so & I shall be glad to have your views on the matter. I may say that the Duty if committed now will have to be paid on the present value of the investments the selling value of which would amount to upwards of £9000. I also send you the draft of a Release which I have prepared on the Reassignment of the investments,
with kind regards,
yours very truly
J. Allington Hughes
