Chancery: Six Clerks Office: Exhibits
These exhibits are private papers which came into the custody of the court of Chancery as 'evidence' in a case.
Many of the exhibits are deeds, often single or in small collections. However, there is a notable collection of deeds, rentals, court rolls, hundred rolls and bailiff's accounts relating to Acle, Threxton and other places in Norfolk (13th to 17th centuries), as well as a large amount of material relating to Alrewas in Staffordshire (1341-1795).
Business records are represented by a large collection of bankers' papers, 1788-1819; charity papers include accounts of the Sarah Cowley and William Clayton Charity for school children in Lancashire, 1758-1775; and there are some oddments, such as a collection of decrees of the provisional Junta in Mexico in 1829.
Many of these papers have lost any link with the case to which they were originally related.
