[Gravesend in Kent - Quarantine by Order of the Mayor.] [An order requiring that all suspected vessels are stopped at the mouth of the Thames and Medway and ordered to perform quarantine at Standgate Creek on the Medway Estuary.], CRUDEN, MAYOR
1 CRUDEN, MAYOR [Gravesend in Kent - Quarantine by Order of the Mayor.] [An order requiring that all suspected vessels are stopped at the mouth of the Thames and Medway and ordered to perform quarantine at Standgate Creek on the Medway Estuary.]
Gravesend: T. Caddel, Printer, 1831. 
Folio single sheet. 19.5 x 12.5 inches. This, the second great Cholera pandemic, started in India in 1829 and by 1831 had reached the continent of Europe. Despite these efforts at quarantine it eventually found it way into Britain, probably via the northern ports, and had reached London by 1832. An estimated 55,000 died in the UK alone. This rare broadsheet also entreats the general population to take the following precautions: “Decayed Articles, such as Rags, Cordage, Papers, old Clothes, Hangings, should be burnt; Filth of every description removed; Clothing and Furniture washed and boiled in a strong Ley; Drains cleansed by running Water and Privies kept clean with Chloride of Lime, the supply and instructions for using which, may be obtained upon application to the Assistant Overseers of the Parishes. Wood work in confined Rooms should be washed with a strong Ley of Soap and Water, the Walls of the House, where they may be in a foul state, should be hot Lime washed; all loose and decayed pieces of plastering should be removed. Free and continued admission of Air to all parts of the House and Furniture should be attended to for at least a Week, and afterwards as may be necessary. It is impossible to observe too scrupulously the necessity of extreme Cleanliness, and free Air in Dwellings; they are the points of the very greatest importance, to be observed in every House.”

A True Copy of the Respective Terriers of the Several Lands Lying in the Common Laines of Brighthelmston in the County of Sussex as Made in the Years 1738 and 1792., SUSSEX. BUDGEN, Thomas
8 SUSSEX. BUDGEN, Thomas A True Copy of the Respective Terriers of the Several Lands Lying in the Common Laines of Brighthelmston in the County of Sussex as Made in the Years 1738 and 1792.
[Brighton]: Manuscript copy, c. 1820. 
Folio. pp. 242 [of which approximately 150 used]; 2 large folding tables, hand coloured plans throughout. Contemporary half calf, recently rebacked. The two most important Terriers [Land Surveys] of Brighton are here copied in a fair hand on paper watermarked Smith & Allnutt 1818, almost certainly as a legal copy for use in the sale and transfer of land by the local landowners. They are highly detailed records of landholdings in the Laines of Brighton, prepared for a local group of Freemen, and a later hand [possibly mid-nineteenth century], has made pencil alterations to some of the plans showing ownership changes and in a couple of instances the route of a new road. Thomas Budgen carried out the second survey and he copied out the earlier survey for comparison. The Laines were at this time almost wholly agricultural and were developed later than in surrounding parishes, as agriculture played a lesser role compared to fishing and coastal trading, consequently the Laines have retained rather more of their original boundaries and format than would otherwise have been the case in earlier more haphazard development. Inevitably, original Terriers tend to be held by local or national record offices and it is highly unusual for contemporary copies [or near contemporary in this case] to appear on the market. See: Rose Collis. The New Encyclopedia of Brighton. 2010. for details about the Tenantry Lands of Brighton.
