William Lowndes' real estate, 1722

Centre for Bucks Studies D/LO/4/39/1

This document wasn't completed but lists all the property which William Lowndes owned in Winslow in 1722. He gave his Winslow estate to his son Robert in 1703 so the list must consist largely of property acquired after that. He kept careful records of his purchases 1715-20 in a notebook. The "ground on which [various houses] stood" is presumably what is now Home Close, where the houses were demolished to improve the view from Winslow Hall.

Neices Judge & Thorp: Elizabeth wife of Isaac Judge (bap. 1690) and Rebecca wife of Thomas Thorpe (bap. 1693) lived at Aylesbury and Dunton respectively (1733 manor court). They were the children of John Wyatt of Shipton (d.1720) by his first wife Rebecca (d.1695). She must have been William Lowndes' sister Rebecca (b. 1660).
