I have in my possession a will of the above, Godfrey Tallents and also a few other papers (indentures?) & title deeds to a Property, he lived in Newark upon Trent, Nottinghamshire and left a widow Laura Eliza Tallents and their sons William Edward Tallents and Godfrey Tallents jr.

I am willing and able to pass it on to any surviving family members.

There's a tree on GR with a William Tallents in it - no dates or location but I have sent a message pointing the owner to this thread in case he is connected. It is quite an unusual name so fingers crossed.

Oh, my, Julie -
What era? I wish I had my ancestor's apprenticeship & freedom papers.

I know there are quite a lot of documents at Nottingham Archives relating to the Tallents family of Newark who were solicitors, I believe. Just had a quick look at the A2A site and there are references to a Godfrey, held, at Lincs Archives too.

thank you Margaret, I don't subscribe to GR anymore, so it is appreciated.

these are dated 1899, Sarah. (Not totally sure what they are all about if I'm honest!)

Yes, I do believe that they were solicitors (and are still in business nowdays too) though it doesnt look like there are any Tallents that are in the partnership.

I have just spotted this thread whilst researching something else for my firm, Tallents Solicitors in Newark upon Trent. Godfrey Tallents was part of a long line of Tallents who owned and ran this firm right up to the 1960's. I accept that you posted this several years ago, Julie, but wondered if the papers were still available. We do still act for John Tallents, who is the great (or possibly great-great) grandson of Godfrey Tallents. I also hold the firm's archive. Most of our client papers from 1774 to around 1950 have been catalogued in either the County Archive or in the Tallents Collection at Nottingham University, but I am uncovering more documents all of the time.

Are the papers still in your possession?

Hello Alistair

Yes I do still have the documents and it would be lovely to pass them on to a family member or possibly the firms archive.

Isn't it great: the way that an old post can get picked up to get such a positive outcome!

It's gone to the company, but a descendant still has dealings with the company Chris, and he keeps copies of all the documents that goes in to the firms own archive. :)

Thank you so much, Julie. This is a brilliant 'find'. I'm quite excited to see it when I get into the office in the morning.

Thank you again

you are most welcome Alistair, I do hope that you haven't already got copies of these documents!

[hopefully you haven't] and have had a whale of a time looking over them today :)
