Content DescriptionThe collection comprises business correspondence, accounts, legal papers and property documents, as well as some family correspondence. As a family company, the distinction between personal and business matters was often blurred.

It seems likely that the early business administration was chiefly the responsibility of Richard Morley the Elder. This is indicated by the presence of correspondence relating to his duties as Mayor that was mixed in with the business letters (now separated), and also as several of the letters and envelopes have been annotated in what is probably his handwriting.
