    • 1700 Continuing deeds - ref. WISTON/34-61 - date: 1700-1827 John Shelley, at the direction of John Stone of Nunnery in Rusper, gent., and John Monke of Old Shoreham, esq. (exors. of the will (no. WISTON/33) of Thomas Beard, jnr.), assign the mortgage, 24 Nov. 1700, with a bond of even date, to John Laker of Wisborough Green, yeo. (nos. WISTON/34-36), who assigned it, 22 May 1703, to Francis Minshull of Thames Street, London, merchant (no. WISTON/37). There is a letter, 20 Sept. 1703, from Thomas Beard [snr.] to John Warden at Butlers Green [in Cuckfield], about the debts of the writer's late son (no. WISTON/38). Following the will, 6 Dec. 1689 (admons. 30 Oct. 1703) of Richard Bridger, snr. (no. WISTON/39; see no. WISTON/25), Richard Bridger, jnr., as administrator of his father's estate, and Thomas Beard [snr.], and Elizabeth his wife, with the surviving exor. of the will of Thomas Beard, jnr., assigned their interests in the property absolutely to the said Francis Minshull, in consideration of ?270 (no. WISTON/40). On his death, his widow and five children assigned the lease, 19 Jan. 1716/7, to William Harris of London, gent. (no. WISTON/41), to whom the Rev. John Reynell, prebendary of the above prebend, granted a new lease, 14 May 1717, for three lives (no. WISTON/42), and another new lease, 28 Feb. 1720/1, on the remarriage of the lessee (no. WISTON/44), the former lease being surrendered, 30 Nov. 1720 (no. WISTON/43). William Harris assigned the lease to trustees, 30 May 1721 (no. WISTON/45). There are attested copies (1827) of two marriage settlements, 1746 and 1753, of Sarah Harris of Salisbury, co. Wilts, spinster (dau. of William Harris) with William Hayter of London, merchant, and secondly of Sarah Hayter, now widow, of Hayes, co. Kent, with Henry Southby of Cheapside, linen-draper, both of which settlements include, inter alia, the above property (nos. WISTON/46, 47). From 1754 to 1822 there are four more leases from different prebendaries, mainly to trustees, with deeds of agreement and surrenders of previous leases (nos. WISTON/48-56). The Rev. Henry Wilson of Kirby Cane, co. Norfolk, mortgaged the property for ?1,000, by assigning his lease, 19 May 1823, to Elizabeth Chessall of Nottingham Street, St. Marylebone, spinster, and Alexander Hale Strong of Lincoln's Inn, co. Middx., gent. (no. WISTON/57), followed by a further charge, 14 March 1825, with assignment of assurance policies, for securing ?3,200 and interest (no. WISTON/58). The said Henry Wilson received a release and confirmation of the estate in 1827 from the devisees and exors. under the will of Sarah Hayter (only dau. of William and Sarah Hayter, n?e Harris), and assigned the property 3, 4 Aug. 1827, to Charles Goring of Wiston Park, esq. (nos. WISTON/59-61).
