Published for the first edition of Sir Henry Chauncy's (1632 - 1719) Historical Antiquities of Hertfordshire 1700. Berkhamsted Place was erected c.1580 by Sir Edward Carey, the keeper of the Jewels to Queen Elizabeth I, using stones removed from Berkhamsted Castle. It was bought by Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales (1594 – 1612) in 1612 and when he died later that year was passed to his brother Charles later crowned Charles I (1600 –1649). The house then changed hands a few times in the turbulent times of the English Civil War and its aftermath inluding the Murray family. In 1660 the lease of Berkhamsted was taken on by the Lord Treasurer, Jerome Weston, 2nd Earl of Portland (1605–1663) however a fire broke out and parts of the house were completely destroyed. Reconstruction was hastily commenced, probably financed by John Sayer who took ownership of the house shortly after it was rebuilt. The Sayer family remained in residence at Berkhamsted Place until 1716, when they sold the lease to William Atwell. The House was demolished in 1967

[From an original Picture by J.Parry. Engraved by F.Jukes.]
[Published July 12th 1803 by Francis Jukes, No. 10 Howland Street _ And Vittore Zanetti, Repository of Arts, Manchester.]
Aquatint with very fine original hand colour, very large margins, proof before all letters 370 x 480mm (14½ x 18¾"), on paper watermarked 'J Ruse'. Several tears in margin, one just entering plate at bottom. Slight time staining.
Mellor Mill, a six-story cotton mill in Marple (now Greater Manchester), built by Samuel Oldknow 1793-5. Extremely rare & fine image. Oldknow (1756-1828) was a cotton manufacturer at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution. Early in his career he used the 'putting-out' system of production, distributing raw cotton to spinners and yarn to weavers who worked in their own homes and workshops. This could not compete against the Indian muslin trade, so he secured money to built this factory. A financial crisis caused by the French Revolutionary Wars put him on the brink of bankrupcy, but he was saved by a partnership with Richard Arkwright. By the time this print was published the mill had over 500 employees, including a number of parish apprentices who were brought up from London. He was known as a good employer: his farming interests allowed him to supply his workers with food and he built them housing. He also introduced his own system of paper money to pay his workforce which could be exchanged for goods at the village shop or for cash via third parties. However by the time of his death he was £206,000 in debt. Oldknow also invested in the Peak Forest Canal, on which was the Marple Aqueduct, which was also the subject of an aquatint by Joseph Parry and Francis Jukes.

In 1440 Sir Robert Whittingham (or Whytingham) and his wife Agnes received a grant of free warren from King Henry VI at Pendley manor; he enclosed 200 acres and tore down the buildings on the land, returning the estate to pasture. He built a manor house at the western end of the now-demolished town as a double cloistered courtyard as well as building a Chapel. On the accession of Edward IV (1442 –1483) he granted Pendley manor to George Neville, Bishop of Exeter in 1461 which then passed on to the Verney family through marriage. The Verney family lived at the medieval manor for the next 150 years, until it was passed on to the Anderson family. Sir Richard Anderson, 2nd Baronet (c. 1635–1699) owned the Penley estate when the print was made.
