2 DORSET. FEACEY, J[em] architect and surveyor New Burial Ground, Charminster, Dorset.
c. 1895. 
Single sheet manuscript plan. 40 x 24 inches, mounted on linen, old varnish rather cracked, mounted on original rollers. Ms plan with numbered burial plots. As churchyards became overcrowded and concern for disease and infection grew, local parishes throughout the country established new burial areas on the fringes of towns and villages. These were usually laid out in a formal manner, rather than the more haphazard system often used in churchyards. Jem Feacey established himself as an architect in his home town of Dorchester in 1895 so this would have been one of his first local commissions, being laid out in 1896.

3 DORSET. MILTON ABBAS. The Ichnographii of the Town Parts, Leasehold and Copie Hold, Tennements and Cottages in the Mannor of Milton Abbas.
1656 and 1734. 
Large folio. 650 x 420 mm. Bound collection of 12 manuscript maps covering the area around Milton Abbas, Dorset. Dating from two periods, 1656 and 1735, bound out of sequence. The earlier maps are extremely ornate, hand coloured and detailed plans with reference keys, all mounted on linen, 1656 or a little later. The later sequence of maps is surveyed for Jacob Banks [Bancks], Esq and dated 1734, on vellum and comprises field outlines and perhaps serves as an accompanying key to the earlier maps. 1. Situation of Delcomb Farm with the Court and Town of Abbas Milton. The Farm House, Orchards and Gardens. 580 x 1270 mm. [c. 1656] – see 9. 2. Luccombe Farm. Surveyed for Jacob Banks, Esq. 1734. 500 x 690 mm. on vellum. – see 7 3. Plan of Bagber's Farm with all His Contents. 300 x 940 mm. [c.1656] – see 11. 4. Licom Farm. 300 x 580 mm. [c.1656] 5.

Surveyed for Jacob Banks, Esq. 1734. 620 x 355 mm. on vellum. – see 6. 11. Bagber’s Farm, Surveyed for Jacob Banks, Esq. 1734. 355 x 990 mm. on vellum. – see 3. 12. Hewish Farm, Surveyed for Jacob Banks, Esq. 1734. 355 x 710 mm. on vellum. – see 5. The Milton Abbas estate was in the hands of the Tregonwell Family from the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries and passed to John Tregonwell IV sometime during the seventeenth century. It seems likely that the first series of plans was produced on his death when the estate was passed on to his son John Tregonwell V. He died without a male heir in 1696 and his daughter married Sir Jacob Bancks, nephew to the Swedish ambassador. On Bancks' death in 1724 the estate was inherited by his second son, also called Jacob, who began extensive rebuilding and renovation. It would be reasonable to assume that he also undertook the new survey of his estates, which feature here, based on the earlier survey. On his death in 1737 there was a fifteen year dispute between rival Bancks and Tregonwell claimants and the estate was sold in 1752 to Joseph Damer, later to become Lord Milton, then the Duke of Dorchester. The grounds of the Abbey itself were later landscaped by Capability Brown, and much of the original village was demolished and relocated. Full eighteenth century mottled calf, worn, but sound.

13 SOMERSET. BICKNELL, W.D. surveyor Map of Maincombe Hill; House, Gounds, Plantations and Lands at West Crewkerne, in the Parish of Crewkerne, Somerset. The Property of A.H. Hussey, Esqu.
1905. 
Manuscript map in pen and ink. 30 x 28 inches. Mounted on linen, edged in ribbon [the edge a little frayed], vertical waterstain, rolled, on original wooden rollers with finials. Maincombe House was built by the Husseys in 1903 after a design by Benson, a local architect, so this map was produced soon after, probably to record their land and estate holdings. A sizeable house, it employed 25 servants and was a modern style employing flat roofs, a tall tower incorporating water tanks with views up to 45 miles away. Following the Army occupation during World War 2 it was reduced in size to a mere 9 bedrooms sometime in the 1960s. The Husseys sold the house in 1987, whilst retaining some 200 acres of the surrounding land. The Husseys were an old family, established in Dorset and Somerset since the Norman Conquest. They had lands and property in Crewkerne from the late 18th to the late 20th Century.

This is obviously intended to illustrate his recent purchase.

16 SOMERSET. PENSELWOOD Plan of the Property in the Parish of Penselwood in the County of Somerset Belonging to the Rt. Hon. Earl of Ilchester and Sir Henry Ainslie Hoare, Bart.
1876. 
Large ms map, hand coloured in outline on several sheets, joined, mounted on linen and rolled. 50 x 70 inches. At this time the Manor of Penselwood was divided between the Earl of Ilchester and Sir Henry Hoare and as late as 1939 the Manor was still said to be jointly owned by Sir Henry Arthur Hoare although the family had sold the land between 1876 and 1918. This map identifies jointly owned land and land owned solely by Sir Henry Hoare and it may be a survey produced for the express purpose of selling the land which was carried out piecemeal over the next 50 years.
