DEEDS OF BANK HOUSE
1902 - 1924

We are fortunate that the the Deeds of Bank House survive as Bank House and its lands was purchased in 1980's and the land sold for development. Chris and Cathy Haynes, upon purchasing Bank House, discovered the Deeds left in the newly built and then unsold Holmeaok House.

It is clear from the Deeds that Bank House once possessed many acres of lands along with a number of properties in the village. The earliest batch of Deeds date from 1870 with reference to previous transactions from the 1860's. One of the more important documents is a Conveyance that lists the properties and fields, including their names, belonging to Bank House (once called Avon Villa). The list includes a vital numbering system that refers back to the Map of 1838, published elswhere on this site.

We are grateful to Chris and Cathy Haynes for allowing the documents to be made available to the public.
