- Admin History: These deeds and papers relate to lands in Epsom and Chertsey, originally inherited by John Ivatt Briscoe from Sir Joseph Mawbey of Botley's Park, Chertsey. Mawbey had purchased the manor of Botleys in Chertsey from Mrs Pleasance Hall in 1763. The manor of Epsom was acquired by Mawbey from the Parkhurst family. John Parkhurst succeeded to the estate in 1706. His grandson John was holding it by 1725 and devised the manor to Sir Charles Kemys Tynte and another trustee in trust for his wife and 2 sons. Following his death in 1765, the manor was sold to Sir Joseph Mawbey in 1770. Mawbey died in 1798 and was succeeded by his son Joseph. Joseph died in 1817 leaving no male heirs so was succeeded first by his daughter Emily and then by his other daughter Anna. Anna had married John Ivett Briscoe who held the properties in her right. The manor of Botleys was sold in 1822 to David Hall. Briscoe bequeathed the reaminder of the property to Henry Blackburn who in turn bequeathed it to his nephew Charles Vernon Strange. From him it passed to his brother James Stuart Strange who died in 1908 leaving 3 daughters. The property was then administered by the trustees of his will.
