sketch plan

I have given this sketch to show the locality of the premises free and copy - H.H.C. 1854 not drawn to scale

A. portion of waste in front of the copyhold of Colne Priory but which has been claimed as copyhold of the manor of Hedingham Upland

B. Offices attached to the copyhold mansion, built on the adjoining freehold

By permission of mrs Majendie 26.8.1844 I inspected the Terrier of the manor of Hedingham Upland from which I found that the part of A next the house was regarded as parcel of the waste of that manor to which the last tenant was admitted and on 1.11.1786 one grant from the lord to Rich Moss - to another parcel of the waste lying between the first parcel and the road - This must have been granted by the lord of that manor in error as the waste in front of a copyhold of Colne Priory must belong to the same manor, or he would have no entrance to the copyhold premises - 23.7.1845 I went with mr Jn Stubbing and took measure of the copyhold premises - the depth from the front of the house, through to the line at the back is 144ft and the width 61ft - The garden in front claimed by Hedingham Upland is 65ft by 45ft - H.H.C. 1854
