A collection of historical and genalogical records
I have been offered ephemera relating to Admiral Douglas's house Seafield in Walmer. Would anyone be interested in this?
Admiral Robert Gordon Douglas(1829-1910), descendant of James, 4th Earl of Morton, was the son of Commander John Douglas, JP, RN, and Robina MacDonell. He had at least one son, James Sholto Gordon Douglas, and a daughter Madeline Gordon Douglas.
The papers are:
# 3 x brown paper plans of the house showing changes to be made
# 18-page handwritten draft specification for the works to be carried out
# 10-page full specification for the works to be carried out
# 2 letters one with Admiral embossed letterhead confirming purchase of Seafield (for £500)
# 5 stage payment builder’s invoices and receipts for work carried out by builder (Mr Trollope) to Seafield
# A final statement of account from the architects (St Anne’s Gate, Westminster) for the works
# A solicitor’s opinion to the Admiral regarding the legality or otherwise of a possible business accommodating ‘cripples’ by the Admiral’s next door neighbour (something that clearly was bothering him after he moved in).
If interested, leave message me in the first instance and I will put you in contact with the vendor, who is seeking £100 for them. This offer closes at the end of May. Thereafter, they will be put up for general sale.
