Knight of Barrells


Copy counsel's observations on the abstract of title to the tithes at Mold and on Captain Knight's proposed purchase thereof. The abstract consisted solely of the conveyance from the late Robert Knight in June 1810. The title was investigated and approved by the Court of Chancery at that time. Absence of the title deeds (including the original grant) was however so suspicious that Captain Knight should not proceed in the purchase until they were accounted for. Signed by C. Parke, 24 Old Square, Lincolns Inn, 27 August 1856.
