    Gilbert Squire, Long Sutton, manorial survey 1737

    I have seen this reference to Gilbert Squire of Long Sutton. 1684 - 14/10/1753.

    Does anyone have an image of this lease reference?

    After many years of searching finally we have proof that John Squire is the son of Gilbert and Anne Squire.
    In an unindexed manorial survey (SRO DD/X/BB 1-9 C/219) it gives details of a lease
    given by the Duke of Devonshire to :-
    Gilbert Squire aged 53 years
    his son John aged 20 years and
    his son Thomas aged 18 years lease dated 2nd January 1737.
    Further proof was found in the manorial court book (SRO DD/DEV 2)
    1754 Manorial Court -
    "We present that Gilbert Squire one of the tenants of this manor is dead since the last court and that a life is lost on his cottage
    which he holds from the Lord of this Manor and that John Squire his son is the new taker"

    google Duke of Devonshire manoral records and a long list comes up with details of his records. Most are at Derbyshire record office as Chatworth House is where he resides.

    Number 14 has the ref DD/DEV and is at Somerset record office. Would that be of any help to you.

    Probably be able to phone them on Monday if they are open. Just realise that SRO is Somerset records office.
