DEEDS OF CROOKED WALLS
1925 - 2012

The earliest document in the Deeds of Crooked Walls is dated January 1925. This is a Conveyance between the Bomford family, who were the vendors and Edith Davies who was the purchaser. A document, called an Abstract of title and dated January 1926, includes a schedule of events effecting the property back to 1893.

Crooked Walls, along with much property and land in Harvington, was held by the Bomford family. The small plan attached to the 1926 schedule (No.2) indicates that in 1893 the section of the Harvington Estate on which Crooked Walls stood included the present garden, the hop kiln and adjacent buildings and land extending down to Shakespeare Lane and Stratford Road. In the 1925 Conveyance however, the plot on which Crooked Walls stood only covered the house and a garden which included two toilet blocks. It is noted that in or shortly after 1926 and before May 1928, Evesham District Council had purchased the remaining land.

Whatever happened to any previous deeds to Crooked Walls, if any, is not known. It is clear that the Bomford's were selling this area of their holdings in separate lots, which would necessitated the creation of a new set of deeds. The conveyance of January 1925 (No.1) would have needed an Abstract of Title. However, this document was only created in March 1926, shortly before the property changed hands again. This document is valuable in giving a schedule of previous events dating back to 1893. The conveyance of January 1925 was between the purchaser Mrs Edith May Davies of Guildford, Surrey and the Bomford family. Mrs Davies purchased the property for 200, which were described as workshops formerly four tenements.

The property changed hands again in April 1926, (No.3) this time for 525 and described as formerly workshops. The new purchaser was Hubert William Cramer, a company director in London. Mr Cramer was the owner of the property until 1949 when it was sold to the McClare family for 3,000. In May 1928, Cyril Ffield purchased (No.4) from Evesham District Council a small triangular piece of land to the south of and adjacent to the rear of the garden of Crooked Walls for the sum of 7.10.0. There is a fine plan of illustrating this piece of land. On looking closely one can see a gateway to the hop kiln. The gateway has two posts and the nearest one was still insitu in 2012, although much decayed. On the 23rd January 1930, Cyril Ffield sold this piece of land to Hubert Cramer.

Cyril Ffield's mother was Emma Beatrice Ffield who lived at Crooked Walls until her death in 1947 and her daughter Barbara until 1949. In a conveyance dated January 1930 Cyril Ffield sold this piece of land to Hubert Cramer, thereby legally integrating it into property. This suggests that the Ffield family was living here as tenants from at least May 1928. The next conveyance is in 1949 when the Cramer family sold the property to the McClare family.

The Conveyance dated 7th January 1930, brings in a partner to Hubert Cramer, that of Cyril Stanley Thomas. There was also a complication in that it was thought necessary to include of Hubert Cramer's father Peter Adolph Cramer who died on the 26th April 1928.

The Conveyance dated 23rd January 1930, transfers for 7.10.0 the piece of land purchased by Cyril Ffield to Hubert Cramer and Cyril Thomas.

The Conveyance dated 31st may 1949, is a transfer of "Crooked Walls" from Hubert Cramer and Cyril Thomas to Eileen McClare.

On 28th September 1959, Crooked Walls was granted Grade 2 listed status.

The Conveyance dated 16th October 1975, is a transfer of Crooked Walls from the late Eileen McClare via her children to Kenneth and Joy Davies.

Planning approval dated 23rd January 1980, for the insertion of a window and the removal of a partition in the kitchen - one sheet and large detailed plan..

Estimate dated 14th October 1989, regarding re-thatching the south side and ridge of the property.

Two documents dated 10 February 1999, including a schedule of docs covering the years 1926 and 1999, plus a copies of two plans already produced - not reproduced here.

Document dated 4th November 2005 concerning divorce of Kenneth Davies and Joy Montgomery - not reproduced here.

Document dated 21st November 2005, concerning the removal of the name Kenneth Davies from the Deeds after divorce - not reproduced here.

A plastic folder dated 1912/3, containing material relating to the replacement of the old garage with a new building at the end of the garden - not reproduced here.

Handwritten sheet dated 2012, documenting an archaeological investigation prior to erection of a building in the garden.
