Huckvale Papers; P20/6D/1; Oxfordshire Archives

Transcribed by Nicholas Adams



The auction conditions are one page of a booklet containing several pages, the rest being accounts. The auction conditions are clearly a copy made for personal notes, most probably by William Huckvale. I have so far only transcribed the auction conditions.
