Deposited by Sir Peter McClintock Greenwell, Bt, of Butley Abbey Farm, Woodbridge, Suffolk, per the Marden Estate Office, Tillingdown Farm, Caterham, in July 1950 and September 1951.

The papers listed in the first portion of the catalogue (K61/1/- to K61/6/-) were deposited in July 1950 and catalogued in 1959.
