[Land grant, Cheshire] Carta Donationis Terrarum in Congilton [Com: Cestriae] a Dno Henrico de Lacy Comite Lincoln Benedicto Filio Walteri de Stanley. circa Annum 1300.28.Ed.1.concessa.
(maxima preservacoe) penes Ric: Rawlinson, LLD et RSS. [British, c.1754].
Engraved facsimile of a c.1300 Latin grant of land to Henry de Lacy, 3rd Earl of Lincoln; seal below text. Sheet 210 x 230mm, (8¼ x 9"). Tears and holes, trimmed. Damaged.
The land around Congleton in Cheshire is granted by the de Stanley family to the powerful nobleman de Lacy, who became Chief Councillor to Edward I. While the king was engaged on military conflicts with the Scots, Henry de Lacy was appointed Protector of the Realm. The original document is from the collection of Richard Rawlinson (1690 - 1755), a clergyman and antiquarian who bequeathed a huge collection of books and manuscripts to the Bodleian Library, Oxford. In 1716 he was ordained, but as he was a nonjuror and Jacobite, the ceremony was performed by a nonjuring bishop, Jeremy Collier. In 1728 he became a bishop, but seems to have preferred to pass his time in collecting books and manuscripts, pictures and curiosities, rather than in discharging his episcopal functions. At his death Rawlinson left to the Library 5,205 manuscripts bound in volumes that include many rare broadsides and other printed ephemera, his curiosities, and some other property that endowed a professorship of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford. The Rawlinsonian Professor of Anglo-Saxon was first appointed in 1795. He was also a benefactor to St John's College, Oxford.

A view of the remarkable suspension bridge over the River Tweed between Horncliffe in Northumberland and Fishwick, Berwickshire, with an angler in the foreground. When it opened it was the longest wrought iron suspension bridge in the world; it is now the oldest suspension bridge still carrying road traffic. Captain Samuel Brown (1776-1852) championed the Royal Navy's use of chain link cables to replace unreliable hemp ropes in rigging. Leaving the navy he set up a chain-making company which provided the navy with chain until 1916. He also provided chain for Brunel's SS Great Eastern: the famous photographe of Brunel by Robert Howlett includes these chains. In 1817 he took out a patent titled the 'Construction of a Bridge by the Formation and Uniting of its Component Parts'. In 1819 he started building this bridge, with the help of John Rennie on the masonry, finishing in less than a year. In 1823 he built the Chain Pier in Brighton. In 1838 Brown was knighted by Queen Victoria.
