Title deeds (7M50/N)



Title deeds to property on the east side of Broad Street at the northern end, to the south of the millstream (packet annotated 'Fire Engine House')
The property was sold in 1694 by Priscilla Worlidge and Rebecca Worlidge of Bramdean, spinsters, to Daniel Veck the younger of New Alresford, fellmonger, when it was described as a parcel of ground with a frontage of 34 feet. By 1704 when Veck mortgaged it to William Fly (of West Tisted, brickburner), there was a messuage on the land. By 1742 Daniel had died and had been succeeded by his son John, and the mortgage had descended to Thomas, son of Fry's executor Thomas Stevens
In the following year John Veck transferred the property (including a fellmongers yard) to his son Daniel', in 1777 Daniel Veck leased it for 14 years to John Hart junior and Bulbeck Dancaster the younger, woolstaplers. By 1843 it had passed to the Revd Henry Aubrey Veck of Forton, Alverstoke (son of Richard Aubrey Veck and Elizabeth his wife); after his death his widow Dorothy sold it to William Bailey, boot and shoe maker, after whose death in 1880 it was sold to Mrs Susanna Eliza Covey
By this time the messuage had been divided into two 1694-1894 tenements lately occupied by William Bailey and George Hall. In 1881 Mrs Covey sold the property to the Bailliff and Burgesses of New Alresford Borough; it was vested in the Town Trustees in 1890.
Includes sale poster, 1880; the 1881 conveyance includes a site plan.
