Details of Deeds of the estate of the Robarts family of Tile House, Lillingstone Dayrell, in Lillingston Dayrell and vicinity
Title: Deeds of the estate of the Robarts family of Tile House, Lillingstone Dayrell, in Lillingston Dayrell and vicinity
Reference: D210
Description:

These documents represent the contents of a single large metal deed box inscribed "Tilehouse Estate" which was retrieved by the depositor from a firm of London solicitors. They comprise deeds and other evidences of title of properties purchased by successive members of the Robarts family, London bankers, in Lillingstone Dayrell, Akeley and Stowe from Baring, Grenville, Dayrell and others between 1801 and 1922. Included are numerous family settlements, wills, mortgages, etc, of two branches of the old-established family of Dayrell of Lillingstone, whose entire estates were absorbed, as well as particulars of the estate of Richard Dayrell, 1765, and a map showing Marmaduke Dayrell's estate in 1773

 

The Robarts were at first absentee proprietors, but were evidently resident in Lillingstone Dayrell by 1863, when a county directory lists Abraham John Robarts, JP, at Lillingstone House

 

Many of the documents were found loose and disarranged while some others were roughly tied together in no apparent order; several original bundles of earlier deeds had come undone and have been wholly or partly reconstituted
