Extent3 items
Content Description3 documents providing several opinions concerning the title of the Duke of Newcastle to the Tuxford estate; centres around whether the codicil to the will of the Anna Maria Crawford, Dowager Duchess of Newcastle makes an absolute gift of £19,000 to the Duke.

Ne 6 D 2/42/402/1: For the opinion of Mr G. Turner, dated 4 Jan. 1848; suggests that the codicil might not alter the will further than necessary to pay the annuities and that a mortgage would be advised to raise the £19,000.

Ne 6 D 2/42/402/2: For the opinion of Mr Christie, dated 4 Jan. 1848 [incomplete]; expresses the same opinion as Ne 6 D 2/42/402/1.

Ne 6 D 2/42/402/3: Case for the opinion of Mr Stuart, dated 29 Jun. 1849; says that it is not easy to see a substantial objection to the title of the Duke to the £19,000.
