TitleRental and account books for the Nottingham Collection of the Newcastle estates; 1793-1886
Extent76 items
Content DescriptionThe volumes cover the following estates as part of the Nottingham collection: Basford, Brinsley, Cromwell, Calverton, Flawborough, North Muskham, Holme and Bathley, Maplebeck, Nottingham, Nottingham Park, Sutton Bonnington and East Bridgford.

The following estates and properties are added to the rental section as the volumes progress: Hucknall [Torkard?], Lambley and Nottingham Gardens [all 1822], Orston [1844] and Heanor [1856]; this reflects purchases and other additions to the estate.

Some estates are removed from the rental as the volumes progress; these are Calverton and Cropwell Butler [both 1857].

As a general rule, each rental section consists of the following: a full list of tenants, a record of one year's rent, details of amount due and of arrears; the rentals also include details of acknowledgements of chief rents where appropriate; each rental has an abstract of rents received, arranged by individual estate within the collection [compared and adjusted from 1843 until 1850]; from 1853, however, there is no abstract of rentals and this information is contained within the accounts section under the abstract of receipts and disbursements.

Each accounts section is arranged in the following manner: details of payments from individual named estates, followed by an abstract; the accounts conclude with an annual balance sheet detailing the receipts and payments for each year; some accounts also include 'contingent receipts and general payments'.

From 1852 onwards the rentals were calculated to Michaelmas, whereas the accounts were calculated to the Lady Day following.

The volumes are compiled by the following Newcastle estate agents: John Deakin from 1793 to 1800, Benjamin Chambers from 1822 to 1834, Edward Woollett-Wilmot from 1841 to 1847, Henry Heming from 1848 to 1850 and John Bromley from 1852 to 1866; a change in agent sometimes brings about an alteration in the way the rentals and accounts are structured.

It should be noted that the volumes from 1793 to 1800 are drafts, and that the final version of these rentals and accounts appears in the volumes for the Clumber collection; the Nottingham estate was part of the Clumber estate until 1821; after this it was managed in its own right; all of the accounts from 1821 onwards are final, audited accounts.
