Case and counsel's opinion

narrates composition for tithes, including 10s 0d an acre for hops, made at the beginning of the incumbency of [Samuel Bush] in Apr 1740 [recte 1743]; does someone who was not then a parishioner have the benefit of the agreement?; copy opinion of George Perrot, Inner Temple [Middlesex]

Copy of agreement between the Rev Samuel Bush and the parishioners of Wadhurst concerning payment of tithes

Case and counsel's opinion

proposed new agreement on the breach of the former composition by the parishioners assessing the vicar for the poor rate at Easter 1753; further query added [in the hand of Richard Dungate of Mayfield, attorney]; with opinion of George Perrot [of the Inner Temple (1710-1780), baron of the exchequer]

PAR 498/6/1/2/4

Case and counsel's opinion

whether arrears can be recovered on a composition paid at less than the true value; how the value of owner-occupied land can be established; whether the Sussex custom of tithe-free woodland can be claimed for hops planted on grubbed-up wood; with opinion of Swynfen Jervis [of the Middle Temple (1700-1771)]

'The second part of a Country Clergyman's appeal to the Publick: being a continuation of the first part inserted in the Whitehall Evening Post, from the seventh to the ninth and from the twenty third to twenty sixth of April 1774'

Long and detailed manuscript account by the Rev Samuel Bush of disputes over the tithes in Wadhurst, 1713-1777. Bush's antagonists, chiefly Charles Pratt (later Lord Camden), [John] Legas and Richard Tapsell, are described in detail.

Bush states that the second part was sent to the printer in May 1775, but that in June the printer has refused to publish it except on conditions that Bush could not accept. A postscript and detailed notes were written in 1777.

Re-bound by Robert Barlow Gardiner, vicar, 1840.



1777

PAR 498/6/1/2/9

Letter from George Wyndham, Wadham College, Oxford to the Rev Mr [Samuel] Bush at Wadhurst near Tunbridge

From the late 16th century there was no vicarage in Wadhurst. The incumbent rented rooms or a house in the parish from his parishioners. However, with the long-running dispute over the tithes the Rev Bush found it impracticable to continue this practice.

Thomas Harris considers that publishing [the account of the tithe dispute] would be disadvantageous to SB. GW had been to Woodford [in Essex] several times in 1775 to pack up and send off all the books, numbering 4500, of Mr [Richard] Warner [c1713-1775, botanist], to the college, where they are still standing in boxes in the library. Suggests the purchase of the reversion of the house late Richard Tapson [recte Tapsell], which SB wishes to leave to the college as a vicarage, by means of a mortgage.
