Transcription of the 1845 Inclosure award.

Transcription of the 1845 Inclosure Award for the Parish of Child Okeford

 

The award was prepared by John Martin, Inclosure Commissioner, Surveyor and Valuer of Evershot Dorset. It is a hand written document, on vellum comprising 11 pages including a map of the lands to be inclosed. It appears to have been written by one person. It is approximately square and the pages are stitched together at the bottom. The first page of the award forms the bottom most sheet of the pile of pages with the map on top. When folded the reverse side of the first page forms the cover of the whole award. Once folded it is secured with linen tapes.

In preparing the transcript certain practical issues arose. Firstly there is virtually no punctuation ; in the whole document there are no more than half a dozen punctuation marks. New sentences may be indicated by the word And which is usually capitalised but this is by no means certain as words, even those used repeatedly, are capitalised irregularly.

The commonest punctuation mark is the carat ^ where words have either been omitted inadvertently or when, in the case of Henry Luke Dillon ^ Trenchard the individual appears to have become the adopted heir to an estate and had to change his name during the time that the award was being prepared. Other marks are used – there is one for example comprising two vertical lines crossed by a horizontal and the closest the keyboard has is # and so I have used this.

Secondly there are no paragraphs . Text simply flows from one line to the next whether or not the subject matter has changed. Initially I tried to represent this by preparing this document in landscape format but this did not work and so I resorted to the portrait form. Where the text deals with the various allotments I found it easiest to present it in tabular form which mirrors the original albeit with horizontal separators which are absent in the original.

The document is hand written “normally” , that is to say as any one of us might write it. However at the beginning of each page or where a change of subject occurs , the words are often written in what appears to be a gothic form of script. I have made no attempt to reproduce this except by the use of a bold capitalised font.

Spelling is as used in the document. I have made no attempt to modernise this and in particular have not changed “inclosure” which was the term used in the nineteenth [and earlier] centuries to the modern “enclosure”. If a word looks odd in the transcription its because it is odd in the original. Very few words were illegible but where they are I have used the * sign to indicate this ; the number of stars represents the numbers of letters in the original that I could not work out.

 

To all to whom these Presents shall come.

I John Martin of Evershot in the County of Dorset Land Surveyor Send Greetings Whereas in and by a certain Act of Parliament made and passed in the seventh year of the reign of his late Majesty King
