Correspondence - Gregory Family

Description

Letter, dated at London, from John Penyfather to his cousin, Arthur Gregory, giving details of entries abstracted from `your brothers bowke' at Bagginton (i.e. dates of Arthur's birth, his mother's death, and his brother Edmund's birth) and reporting a business conversation in London with Mr. Royle `towching our causses'. He also makes known his hope of settling in Warwickshire. He has asked his cousin, Samuel Wade, to speak with Edmund Gregory about a possible lease of Brountes Farm, but he fears it will come to nothing because he has always shown his disapproval of Edmund's conduct towards Arthur, and recently refused to lend him money. He therefore puts his trust in Arthur, hoping he can put aside something for him and assuring him that he will be a good tenant. Endorsed: i) To the woorshipful Arthur Gregory esq. deliver at his house at Stichall neere Covintry ii) with extracts by Arthur Gregory from old deeds
