This record is held by Manchester University: University of Manchester Library
Muniments relating to the Arderne family of Alvanley, Cheshire, and the related Done family of Utkinton, Cheshire, and their estates. The documents relate chiefly to Alvanley, Utkinton, Tarporley, Rushton, Eaton, Oulton, Clotton, Kingsley, Norley, Duddon and Stockport. They include title deeds, rentals, maps, enclosure awards, and 17th- and 18th-century deeds concerning apprentices' charities.
There are numerous marriage settlements and wills from the 17th and 18th centuries. A number of items also relate to the Crewe family of Crewe, Cheshire.
When received, the collection was arranged in bundles numbered ARD/331-357, 360-362, 364-371, and ARD/377-378. As these numbers may have been used for reference purposes previous to the deposit, it has been considered advisable to retain them in the descriptions below. The documents are, accordingly, described within these groupings.
The original spelling of names of persons and places has been retained. Unless otherwise stated places mentioned are in co. Chester.
