The following interesting list of Deeds relating to lands in Matlock, and to the Bowns, and several other old families then may interest the readers of the" RELIQUARY," and is, at all events, worth preserving. The deeds were, with a quantity of others, in a Book in possession of the Defendant Timothy Spencer and were about 30 years ago in the custody of his Great Grandson Mr. Timothy Spencer of the Lyme Tree House, Matlock Bank, as he stated to me.
