the rev Wm Edw Hume 5.4.1832 by purchase from the executors of his late father the rev Jas Jn Hume - to all that messuage in Earls Colne, formerly two, the one called Conees otherwise Copses held by the annual rent of 8d - and the other called Shawes etc. by annual rent of 6d - together with one croft of land or pasture thereto belonging containing by estimation 1a - and also one other field or croft of land lying beyond the malting office (now and for some time past converted into a barn and stable) containing by estimation 2.5a
Commutation map no. 116 (116) (116a) - House and garden 1r26p
survey 1598 - fo. 51 - two messuages - the one called Shawes Jn Ward was nearest the river - the other called Coneys Clem (abstract of title Shawes page 115, Conees or Copes page 173) In 1713 when in possession of Eliz Toller , who married Thos Angier the two tenements Shawes and Conees were pulled down and the present mansion erected. I am at a loss to know which are the two portions of copyhold here mentioned as of the manor of Earls Colne. No quitrent appears to attach to them - and the copyholds of the Priory manor completes the quantity of the whole estate in the tenure of mr Hume - I believe there is a mistake?
