Document Number:0412113
Title:Case for legal opinion
Date:14 June 1791
For Sale:45.00
Fair. Slightly foxed and somewhat grubby on the outside as folded, but very reasonable condition for a paper document of this age.
Paper : 2 sheets 31cm x 19cm
Summary of contents:
Joseph Somerscales of Evenlode, Gloucestershire (died 1765)
Alicia Somerscales of Evenlode, Gloucestershire

NB. The only place reference in this document is to "Emload", but a search of the IGI shows a couple named Alicia and Joseph Somerscales in Evenlode, Gloucestershire around 1750, so I have identified Emload as Evenlode.

The document recites the interest of Alicia Somerscales in property in Emload and appears to be asking the opinion of a Mr Kenyon of Lincolns Inn as to the extent to which she may dispose of it as she pleases. The property descended to Joseph Somerscales from his father Joseph, and before that from a great-uncle William Somerscales.
