Biographical/Historical note

Tre-wyn, Monmouthshire, was originally owned by the Wynston family. In 1606, Thomas Wynston of Tre-wyn sold the manor and estate to John ap William Parry of Wern-y-cwm in Llanvetherine. In July 1609, he conveyed the manor of Tre-wyn (also known as Wynston) to John Delahay of Allt-yr-ynys for the sum of £950. The last member of the Delahay family, Thomas Delahay, died in 1738 without issue. He left the estate to Mary Clerk, wife of Josias Clerk, of Herefordshire, mercer, with remainder to their second son, Josias, and in default to their eldest son, John, on the condition that the inheritor took the name of Delahay. In 1745 the estates were purchased by William Kynaston, who sold off parts of it. In 1748 the manor of Tre-wyn was sold off after the death of Kynaston to James Shaw. On James's death in 1767 the estate was left to his great-nephew, William Shaw. William Shaw died in 1772 and Jeremiah Rosher, who married the widow of William Shaw, purchased the estate. In 1895, Jeremiah Lilburn Rosher sold the manor and estate to Philip Bartholomew Barneby.

 D591/81/336 Solemn Declaration with other evidence In matter of whether a way though Trewin Estate is for carriages, or a mere bridle way. David Williams now 76 and an occupant of Trewin Mill for first 40 years of life states there were gates in present position as long as he can remember. J. James Prosser for 5 years a servant of Delahay's and that 70 years ago confirms this. Lewis Williams remembers up to 40 years ago and agrees, noting how Peter Daniels was only allowed through the estate with his cart on sufferance. John Watkins of Cwmyoy in 1771, John Price of Petty Crewn, aged 30, Evan Williams, 50 years ago, and Philip Thomas 45 and 30 years ago all clads to have driven though without opposition. Rosher states way merely for horses sheep or those on foot; the Parish Surveyors making of the complaint came from Cwmyoy a Monmouthshire Parish; his estates are in Herefordshire; allowance of the complaint would mean his animals running loose on Black Mountains; Furthermore he can prove gates were in existence for at least 75 years. 21 Sep 1796 

 D591/81/334 Powell to Rosher Advice about indicting a parish before a grand jury concerning defective road. Has sent Mr. Arnold, surveyor of roads in the district to ascertain exact extenet of defect.

Suggests a competent judge of woods together with one acquainted with the woods before teh trespass view Farr's damage to ascertain amt. of it. Advises Rosher to expect remuneration from last Summer's wheat crop; selling the tythe of wheat to Farr does not mean a forfeiture of this right. 7 Jan 1802 

 D591/81/343 Thomas Meredith, Lanthony, to Jeremiah Rosher Desires Rosher to give up plan to indict parishioners of Trevedon. Col. Wood who has empowered Meredith to collect rate for road repair, is very anxious for road repair and wants Rosher to drop plan. On Wood most of expense of action would fall. Meredith will be governed by Rosher's instructions as to road repair. 10 Jan 1802 

 D591/81/333 Memorandum in Rosher's hand. Rosher to be allowed old road by parish meeting of Trewyn since he was allowed so little compensation by the agreement made by James Lewis and Isaac Roberts Surveyor for fact new road ran across his land. If landowners and inhabitants don't accept this, then old road must be widened and greater expense annually be incurred in its repair. If they do, he will pay for new hedge in Unnis meadow himself in addition to his share of cost of new road. [Early 19th century]

 D591/81/417 Wm. Powell, Abergavenny to Jeremiah Rosher, Rotherhithe. Teague is threatening to bring action of trespass against the bearer Thomas Rumming to a head despte removal of beasts from Penbiddle. Rowlands must be got to testify to this and the prior agreement and Teague's giving Rumming permission to enter orchard. Details of Teague's obstinacy in not quitting. Mr. Williams and Powell have decided in view of the payments made, the trifling amount taken out of John MIllett's poverty not to bring matter of trees Millet cut down to trial. Desires to know whether Rosher will hold Court Leets at Easter and Mich. according to curtom. Doubts whether David Wyndhams litigious brother will pay heriot, or living outside Lordship can be expected to do so. Hopes here went down well. 14 Feb 1784 

 D591/81/421 Counsel's Opinion in Rosher v Powell of C. Abbott, Inner Temple Powell's wife's admission can't be used but evidence of number of trees and fruit trees before and after tenancy should be sufficient. On fences too Rosher will get verdict. Removal of dung more difficult to rectify at law - the agreement would have to be stamped at exhorbitant expense suggest matter be introduced in "declaration of other causes". If Powell as ingoing tenant had some of outgoing tenant's wheat he is now only entitled to an amount which would bring it up to what is normal custom as outgoing tenant. However, notice to quit does not affect Powell's right to the profits of his tenancy. 15 Jun 1795 

 D591/81/423 Counsel's Opinion in Rosher v Frost of Thomas Peake the younger of Symonds Inn. Whether Frost leading by indenture of 17 89 from Rosher could return fences other than ring fences in ill-repair disclaiming liability because, (a) The lease spoke of care of "fences in, upon or surrounding" the property rather than "in upon and surrounding the property." (b) Rosher had already given Frost a receipt in full of rent and all other demands. Peake regards Frost's claim on count (a) invalid but not on (b) unless Rosher has strong evidence he did not know of Frost's neglect of fences. 18 Apr 1796

 D591/81/400 Thomas Jones, Abergavenny to Jeremiah Rosher, Esq., 13 Chatham Place, Blackfriers London Soon after 6th had sent on Mrs Rosher's letters re: Trewyn. Disputes her claims which are only seemingly to enhance difficulties of letting the property. She wants it let to David Morgan had conversed with William Jones but had not told him all and temporised with Griffiths of Altyrynis who had applied for Lower Trewyn for a brother. These now observed Mrs Rosher's claim to most of buildings and hamlets great indebtedness to par. Cloddock towrads of Mrs Williams at Dr. Exton's. Wants Rosher's opinion of letting it in present state for one year at £80. Mrs Williams won't be sent to Trewyn until par. officer has roused sufficient for Extons charges. Wm. James of Hereford agent for Guys hospital for the Altyrynis Estate with pay for the 4 oak trees of yours which he felled - provided you can show that they are yours and not as he thought those of owner of hedge James will write. In meantime, Jones has found weight of local opinion against Rosher. James refuses to reduce his estimate yet dispute as to those three pieces is really very trifling. 18 Dec 1822

 D591/81/252 Counsel's Opinion William Eagle Middle Temple in matter of Trewyn tythe Mr Lewis has found predecessor had only received small tythes. No terriers had been found in records of diocesse of Saint Davids. Rosher coming to ownership in 1827 found himself except from small Tythe but paying a "modus" instead. Lewis at first refused all tythe until Lord Tenterdon's Act which he thought precluded him from taking a larger sum consented Rosher persisted in offering modus of £1.7s.6d. Counsel was of opinion that Rosher has misinterpreted modus and by offering what was ten shillings less than custom had forfeited claim to it. Lewis is receommended not to accept Rosher's preferred ten shillings as correct tythe of Upper Trewyn and indeed to insist on independent adjudication. He regards statements by William Jones aged 70 about collection of 2/6d at Lower Trewyn as inconsistent with a modus. 8 Apr 1844

 D591/81/272 James Lilburn, Newton to Rosher Very unwell and fearing excitement. Has been attacked first by billiousness then by slow pulse. Taking mercury and sarspacella twice daily. Has sold Bringham's crop towards debt. Bringham might have been indicted for fraud had this not rendered prospect of payment even less likely, and the please of Mr Donaldson, schoolmaster, promising Selby would make amends and pay up. Mrs. Johnson unco-operative and what money was paid by Lilburn to Selby (in part for interest) was appropriated by Selby. Solely in payment of his own account. Letting Patterson barn and field for £20 1st year (its condition left very dirty by Selby) then after for £22 (a good deal more than value). Not the slightest objection to property's being sold. D. Selby hasn't sold farm nor is likely at present asking price. Stock therefore not quite sold. 23 Jun 1847

 D591/81/298 Selby to Rosher The property in Holy Island had been devised to James Lilburn and his sister Sarah as tenants in Common immediately on Selby Lilburn's obtaining a naval lieutenancy. Property mortgage £402 by Mrs Lilburn with arrears of interest last May of £27.2s.9d. The property was also made (in her will) subject to her debts but these have probably been paid off.

 D591/81/275 A Ellis, George Steet, to John Ellis. Advises on where will was proved and that copy should be obtained not from Diocesan authorities, but from the executor which is cheaper. Probably Sarah Lilburn will have copy, a circumstance which will reveal relationship with brother.

 D591/81/290 Copies of Letters Marked A. 1848 February 27 James Lilburn to Selby? Lilburn just returned from a cruise states he cannot properly consider deeds sent him without copy of will. Would also like abstract fo which he has been charged £5.10s. Marked B 1848 March 1 Selby to Lieut. Lilburn R.N.

 D591/81/309 S. Lilburn, South May to Rosher. Writing on behalf of brother who had gone to sea. From will, 1/2 field and all the cottages left to sister, Sarah. Brother's only desire to protect Rosher's son's interest. Gerard Selby had got Miss Johnson to press for her interest - under £27 - to embarass professional in matter.

Advises Rosher not to write to this man without further advice. 28 Mar 1848 

 D591/81/303 Copy of letters from Selby to Lieut. Lilburn Letters of 1847 July 30th. 1848 March 1st [1847-1848] 

 D591/81/313 Lilburn to Rosher, Northfleet Gravesend Kent. He and Selby Lilburn had wondered whether to visit Rosher, but decided against it. John Ellis advises that the deeds were correctly drawn up by Selby according to the mother's will, but urges that return of them should be delayed. With it. Copy Selby to Lilburn of letter of 1848 April 5th. Has had further letter re. Holy Island from Alex Wilson urges speedy execution of deeds. Delay harms all parties. 7 Apr 1848 

 D591/81/292 James Lilburn, South May, Yarmouth to J.B. Rosher, Trewyn. Has sent copy of mothers will, underlined in places. Property a source of constant trouble to the write. Mr Gerard Selby had constantly pestered over Miss Johnson's interest, though he knew Mr Bingham was being sued and that in addition, £185 maintenance was due from Bingham. Selby has got her to consent to £402 being charged exclusively on field instead of entire property. The rule is that property should be worth at least double the mortgage - which would make field infinitely more than Selby paid for it. Selby has been using his intimate friend, Lambert as go-between - as doubtful a practice as acting for himself in matter. He asked writer for copy of will, which he could just have easily made himnself, merely to swell own charges. He divided proceeds between writer and Rosher equally when knew Rosher entitled to value of whole of property cottages and half of field (i.e. 2/3) Selby has contradicted himself over whether power of sale existed. Regards Selby's advice not to make the Lieutenants Lilburne parties to deed, the result of stupidness or sinister intentions. Had writer the money to do so and interest in the property, she would bring pressure to bear on Selby her Cutter is in the harbour to have fitted a new lower mast over the next week or so. Desires to meet Rosher in town to discuss business. 30 Apr 1848 

 D591/81/305 Selby to Rosher Has not received conveyance despite several letters to Mr. Lilburn and brother. Mr Wilson, desirous to complete the business threatens proceedings. 8 May 1848 

 D591/81/312 Rosher to Selby (copy) Has conversed with the Lilburns recently in Northfleet. Advises certain alterations in the deed now in his possession, stressing the fact that he is acting merely as his son's trustee. Has Mrs Lilburn's will and wonders why proceed, after account paid was not divided as devised. In one letter Selby has stated power of sale not in previous mortgage deed; in another was. Wants explanations to discover how Selby's had been looking after his interest. Then is the time to talk of proceedings to compel settlement of contract. 15 May 1848 

 D591/81/306 Gerard Selby to Rosher In reply to Rosher's of 15th inst. Cannot agree to alterations in conveyance. Since the document was originally drawn up with the advice of a foremost northern conveyancer, Mr Walters of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. He was not aware of his contradictory statements concerning power of sale in the mortgage. They can however be easily explained for though the mortgage contained no such power the covenants made by the Lilburns did. Would otherwise threaten expensive proceedings by foreclosure, sale was James Lilburn's "most anxious wish." Though acting for all parties the afffair has done best of rJames Lilburn's and Selby's interest. Nothing has been done about sharing the proceeds; therefore any error resulting from the statement sent to Rosher for his examination can be rectified with ease. 17 May 1848

 D591/81/281 Lilburn, Royal Charlotte at sea to Rosher. apologies for failure to answer last two letters. G. Selby had been threatening Selby Lilburn with proceedings in chancery. Advises Rosher to hang on to deeds of cottages. There's a good deal of arrears of rent and this may be only way of getting them. We have hold on him on account of his transacting on own behalf. His liver is sorry but he cannot pick up anything until he has got rid of the Comptroller General expected in a few days. His brother and he parted with a quarrel, about which reticent. 29 May 1848 

 D591/81/280 Gabb to [Rosher] Assures him no harm will come from entering into conveyance on son's behalf. If son dies under age, he himself under new law of property will be his son's heir. 2 Jun 1848 

 D591/81/278 Gabb to [Rosher] Disagrees that field and cottages are equally liable to mortgage and agrees with Selby that first the field is subject, and the cottages then to remainder. 13 Jun 1848 

 D591/81/308 James Hall, Holy Island to Lieut. S. Lilburn, Trewyn.

 D591/81/284 James Lilburn, Royal Charlotte at Sea, to Rosher Trewyn. Apologises for delay in answering last, has only slept ashore once in past month and that at one o'clock.

Has had to deal with documents concerning the present refitting of the cutter. Hopes in a fortnight to sail to Berwick. Yarmouth Regatta is on but health will prevent attendance as Mayors Navy frolic. Crops good hereabouts Promise if as thought, he will soon be at Sheeness to look up Rosher's brother and Hannah. 26 Jul 1848
