Catalogue ref: U269/E439
Collection: Sackville Estate, Kent
Description: Copies of various title deeds, agreements, and related documents. Sevenoaks Lock-up House and the site of a new Police Station in Sevenoaks. Draft conveyances, copies of orders of the Justices of the Peace for Kent, copies of correspondence and original letters concerning the sale to Lady Amherst of the old Lock-up in 1863 in exchange for a site for a new Police Station, over which there were legal difficulties, due to Lady Amherst's death and concerning the interpretation of certain legislation, which raised doubts as to the validity of the 1863 conveyance and led to the postponement of the second part of the transaction. The matter was re-opened with the trustees of the late Lady Amherst in 1874 but dropped in 1877.
