Woodside Cottage Barber alias Nynne

Woodside Cottage, December 2014.
      Mary Barber purchased this property in 1691 and its location was only determined by following the ownership changes in the Datchurst manorial court books through to the late 19th century. Identifying the owner in the 19th century allowed that person to be located on the schedule attached to the 1838 Tonbridge tithe map, which gives the unique plot number (652) for the property and allows it to be located on the tithe map. The property is on the Tonbridge to Sevenoaks road, directly opposite the Half Moon Inn, and was originally just over one acre in area. Only the house survives today at 99 Tonbridge Road, Hildenborough and is a Grade II listed building now known as Woodside Cottage. There is a photograph of the house taken in 1957 in the English Heritage “England’s Places” photographic collection showing the house in a very overgrown and neglected state. Another photograph would appear to have been taken soon after when a certain amount of the overgrowth had been removed.
The house has since been restored and updated. It can be located at coordinates latitude 51.215118 North; longitude 0.243968 East.
Much of the information comes from the U55 collection at the Kent History and Library Centre of which the court rolls of the manor of Datchurst 1718-1884 (U55 M378) is one item. This collection came from Hubert. W. Knocker, solicitor and at one time steward of the manor of Datchurst (c1880), and includes a number of different manorial records, deeds etc. He looks to have been involved with a number of manors and kept the court records in his own possession which is fortunate, as with numerous changes of ownership (of the manors) and the vicissitudes of time, these records have often gone missing. (G. Rickard.)

HISTORY TIMELINE FOR THE WIDOW MARY BARBER'S PROPERTY, HILDENBOROUGH
(Note: taken from the book Barber alias Nynne - see Publications. Sources of information are given in the book).

21 Oct 1691     Widow Barber takes (copyhold) possession of a cottage from the manor of Datchurst. It is described as "One tenement or cottage, one barn and one orchard, and two roods of land by estimation, with the appurtenances, lying on the highway leading between Tonbridge and Sevenoaks towards the east and north, and the lands late of Francis Skeffington esquire towards the south". (See full transcription below).
Mar - Jun 1692     Three receipts for work done by William Dudson specifically mention Widow Barber and the "old house". The receipt mentions the building of a 4 flue chimney. (See transcription below).
14 Apr 1692     First occurrence of Widow Barber in the Overseers of the Poor rating assessments of property owners. The property was rated at 1s/6d indicating a rental value of the property of £1/10s (rated at 1s/- in the £).
17 Oct 1692     The property was rated at 2s/3d in the Overseers of the Poor rating assessment (rated at 1s/6d in the £), indicating a rental value of £1/10s as before.
16 Apr 1695     The property was rated at 1s/6d in the Overseers of the Poor rating assessment (rated at 1s/6d in the £), indicating a lower rental of £1. In addition there was "and for Mr Danver's 2s/3d" indicating that she had leased other lands.
7 Nov 1695     The property was rated at 1s/- in the Overseers of the Poor rating assessment (rated at 1s/- in the £), indicating a rental value of £1. Widow Barber is also rated for "Mr. Danver's & Mr. Richardson's, 1s/6d".
9 June 1698     The property was rated at 2s/- in the Overseers of the Poor rating assessment (rated at 2s/- in the £), indicating a rental value of £1. Mr Danvers and Mr Richardson are rated for "land late used by Widowe Barber", so she is no longer using this.
4 Oct 1712     A quit rent receipt for 6d paid by Mary Barber states "for lands near the Half Moon".
13 Oct 1730     Two years before she dies, Widow Mary Barber transfers the property to her eldest surviving son, Thomas Barber, a malster of Tonbridge. (See transcription below).
12 Oct 1749     The property passes to Thomas Barber's nephew, also a Thomas Barber, via his will. Both are maltsters of Tonbridge. It is not known if the nephew Thomas and his future wife Elizabeth (daughter of John Waite) actually lived in the house. Given his occupation as a malster it is more likely that they lived in the house in Tonbridge town that Thomas also inherited from his uncle. (See transcription below).
4 Feb 1755     Thomas Barber dies intestate and administration is granted to his widow, Elizabeth Barber (daughter of John Waite). Her only child Thomas is just 2 years old.
19 Oct 1758     The Datchurst manorial court proclaims that the infant Thomas Barber is heir to the property held by his father who died in 1755. (See transcription below).
23 Oct 1764     The "infant" Thomas Barber (i.e. under the age of 21 years) is admitted to the property under the guardianship of his mother Elizabeth until he is 21 years of age. (See transcription below).
29 Jan 1776     Elizabeth Barber transfers her right of dower to her 23 year old son Thomas Barber. The Hildenborough property is mentioned as part of this indenture. We find in a later document that this was in exchange for an income to Elizabeth of £20 p.a. William Waite, yeoman of Tonbridge, appears to be a trustee for Elizabeth and is most likely her eldest brother.
The house is described as a "messuage … now divided into two several habitations ... with the yards, backsides, gardens and orchards thereunto respectively apportioned and … containing by estimation one acre of ground more or less, with appurtenances, situated, lying and being in Hildenborough in Tonbridge aforesaid and now in the tenure or occupation of Widow Kemp and John Wells".
10 Oct 1788     The property and others are mortgaged to George Children to raise £500. Thomas Barber is said to be a malster of Ightham.
12 Oct 1801     The property is sold to George Children for £150 under a Lease and Release conveyance. Thomas Barber is described as a yeoman.
26 Dec 1801     The mortgage arranged in 1788 is discharged using proceeds from the sale of some of the properties held under the mortgage, including the Hildenborough property and another called Finches.
12 Nov 1813     The transfer of ownership from Thomas Barber to George Children in 1801 is recorded in the Datchurst manorial court rolls. The property is described as a messuage or tenement, garden and two orchards. (See transcription below).
c1840     The entry in the Datchurst court roll dated 2 September 1862 shows the next owner after George Children to be Thomas Peckham. The 1838 Tonbridge tithe map shows him occupying plot 652 in Hildenborough, comprising a house, shop, garden, yard, etc of 1 acre, 1 rod and 8 perches, and with a vicarial tithe (paid to the resident vicar) of 3s/-. The map shows this to be almost exactly across the road from the Half Moon public house. This is therefore the location of Widow Mary Barber's house. (See map Fig. A3-1)
1841 Census     Occupying the property are brothers Edward and Thomas Peckham, both aged 60 years, with Edward Peckham aged 30 years, wife Sophia aged 35 years and children. Thomas and both Edwards are wheelwrights.
1851 Census     Edward Peckham, wheelwright, and wife Sophia and family occupy the property with Edward Peckham, widower, aged 70 years, and Thomas his uncle, aged 72 years. Thomas was later buried at Leigh on 19 May 1851 ("age 72 years").
1861 Census     Edward Peckham, wheelwright, and wife Sophia and family occupy the property. It appears that the older Edward Peckham has died.
2 Sep 1862     The Datchurst manorial court rolls record the admission of Edward Peckham, carpenter, to the property on the death of Thomas Peckham, the previous owner. The property was also enfranchised at this time, no longer beholden to the manor (i.e. now freehold). The property is described as:
"Copyhold messuage or tenement garden and two orchards lying to the highway leading from Tonbridge to Sevenoaks towards the East and to land at one time of Wickenden formerly Whittakers afterwards Eldridges then of Thomas Barton [Barber] afterwards of George Children then of his assignees and since of Thomas Peckham deceased". (See full transcription below).
12 Jan 1863     According to a family tree in www.Ancestry.co.uk, Edward Peckham, wife Sophia and the three youngest children emigrated in 1863 on board the ship Pharamond, arriving Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, to join their older children who had emigrated a year earlier. Edward died on 12 September 1866 aged 56 years of wounds inflicted by a leopard attack.

SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS

Purchase of Cottage, Barn & Orchard (about 1 acre) in Hildenborough by Mary Barber, 1691.

On 21st October 1691 the widow Mary Barber became the owner of a small cottage in Hildenborough. Remarkably, the title still survives; that is, a copy of the entry in the Datchurst manorial court rolls which records her admission to the property. It is transcribed (from the Latin) below:
Datchurst
Court Baron held in the same place on Wednesday, the twenty first day of October in the one thousand six hundred and ninety first year of our Lord, by Thomas Weller, under steward in the same place.
To this Court came George Petley, gent, and George Hooper junior, gent, two of the customary tenants of this manor, and surrendered into the lord's hands, by the acceptance of the aforesaid steward,
One tenement or cottage, one barn and one orchard, and two roods of land by estimation, with the appurtenances, lying on the highway leading between Tonbridge and Sevenoaks towards the east and north, and the lands late of Francis Skeffington esquire towards the south, held by copy of the rolls of court, to the use and behoof of Mary Barber, widow, and her heirs.
And hereupon the aforesaid Mary comes, in her own person, and seeks to be admitted to the aforesaid tenements,
To which Mary, indeed, the lord of the aforesaid manor, through his aforesaid under-steward, granted seisin thereof by rod,
To have and to hold to the aforenamed Mary and her heirs, at the will of the lord, according to the custom of the manor, by copy of the rolls of court, by the rent and services formerly due and of right accustomed in respect thereof.

Receipt for work done by William Dudson to Widow Barber's house, 1692.

This receipt was documented in a Hildenborough local history book (Cope and Dash, 2007) and also on the Hildenborough parish council website. The original receipt has not been found despite a number of searches at the Tonbridge Library and the Kent History and Library Centre. The receipt is said to read:

Transfer of Mary Barber's House to Son Thomas Barber, 1730.

On 13 October 1730, two years before her death, Mary Barber transferred her house in Hildenborough to her surviving son Thomas (Richard had died in 1722) and this is documented in the court rolls for the manors of Datchurst, Lamport, Martin Abbey and Nizells, 1718-1884:
Manor of Datchurst
Lamport Martin
Abbie and Nisell
At the Court Baron of our Lord King George the Second, Lord of the aforesaid Manor, held in the same place on the twelfth day of October in the fourth year of the reign of our Lord the said King, and in the year of our Lord 1730,
Before Thomas Freebody, gentleman, Deputy Steward of Matthew Hickeringill, esquire, Steward in the same place by the patent of the Honourable John, Earl of Leicester, Chief Steward in the same place,
It is enrolled thus;

One messuage or tenement, one barn, one garden and two orchards, with the appurtenances, lying on the highway leading from Tonbridge to Sevenoaks towards the east, and with the lands late of Francis Skeffington esquire towards the south, held by an annual rent of six pence and other services,

Transfer of Mary Barber's House to her Grandson, Thomas Barber, 1749.

At the Datchurst manorial court held on 12 October 1749 Thomas Barber was admitted to the Hildenborough property previously owned by his uncle and before that his grandmother, the widow Mary Barber:
"The Homag aforesaid upon their oaths present that Thomas Barber a customary tenant of the Manor of Datchurst dyed [died] seized [possessed] of a customary messuage, garden and two orchards lying by the King's highway to the east and lands by then held of [blank] Wickenden and [blank] Whitaker to the south, held by the said manor by copy of court roll by will of the lord according to the customs of the said manor and the yearly rent of six pence. And that he Devised the same to Thomas Barber". (Transcribed by G. Barber, 2014)

Proclamation of Great Grandson, Thomas Barber, as Heir to Mary Barber's House, 1758.

On 19 October 1758 the Datchurst manorial court proclaimed that the infant Thomas Barber was heir to the property held by his father who died in 1755. The delay of a number of years between one tenant dying and his successor being admitted to the property was not uncommon and probably due to the courts not being held every year.
"they present that Thomas Barber nephew of Thomas Barber since the last court dyed [died] seized of a customary messuage or tenement and a garden and two orchards lying by the highway leading from Tonbridge to Sevenoaks towards the east and to the lands of [blank] Wickenden and [blank] Whitaker to the south which he held of the said Manor by copy of court roll by will of the lord according to the customs of the said manor and the yearly rent of six pence and that Thomas Barber his son is heir. First proclamation made for Thomas Barber son of Thomas Barber to take up his copyhold estate. (Transcribed by G. Barber, 2014)

Transfer of Mary Barber's House to her Great Grandson, Thomas Barber, under Guardianship by Elizabeth, 1764.

On 23 October 1764 the "infant" Thomas Barber (i.e. under the age of 21 years) was admitted to the property under the guardianship of his mother Elizabeth until he is 21 years of age. It is interesting to note that the court was held at the Half Moon Inn across the road from the Barber's property.

Transfer of Mary Barber's House to George Children, 1813 (Sold 1801).

The Hildenborough property was sold in 1801 but the entry in the Datchurst manorial court roll was not made until 1813. It would appear they were fined 10 shillings each for their tardiness:
"Also they present that at this court came Thomas Barber one of the customary tenants of the Manor of Datchurst and then and there in full and open court surrendered into the hands of the lord of the said manor by the hands and acceptance of the said Deputy Steward by the rod according to the custom of the said manor all that customary messuage or tenement garden and two orchards lying to the highway leading from Sevenoaks to Tonbridge towards the east and to the lands of [blank] Wickenden formerly Whitakers and since Eldridges and late his father Thomas Barber held of the said manor by copy of court roll and yearly rent of sixpence To the use and behoof of George Children Esq his Heirs and Assigns for ever
