C.H.H 20 Novb /55 Sir, Annexed I beg to send you a Telegraph message received from the Inspg Commdr of the C.Guard at Bridlington on Saturday the 17 Inst and my reply thereto together with a Bond taken thereon under the 468 sectn of the M.S Act 1854, to which there are but two parties whereas from (W 6) and paragraph 53 contemplate three persons being parties thereto - such omissions I {beg} however trust will not be fatal as I am certain that Captn Metcalfe was desirous that the Instrument should be perfect. As yet I am not informed of the merits of the case, further than is conveyed in the Telegraph message, that the Magistrate had a warded the Boatmen at Bridlington £120 for certain services rendered the Schooner "Ana" of Kirkwall, But as the Bond is not on stamped paper. I beg if necessary the same may be done an returned to me. The particulars of the services rendered shall be forwarded as soo as I receive them.

Manorial rights of Sir G. Strickland

24 Novbr /55

Sir,

With reference to my letter of the 17 Inst on the subject of the Claims of certain Gentlemen to Manorial Rights over parts of the Coast between Flambro Head and Spurn Point, wherein I stated I had again written to Sir G. Strickland for further information respecting his claim and beg to annex a copy of my letter and his reply thereto which does not contain any further information than that communicated in his letter already before you. I also annex the undermentioned documents on the same subject which was lodged with Mr Stephenson the late Receiver of Wrecks, and which have been handed to my by his son, viz

The claim of Sir Clifford Constable of Burton Constable is precisely the same as the claim already forwarded.

The claim of Mr Richd Bethell of Rise as Lord of the Manor of Hornsea but without the detail of Limits contained in his claim. The nature of his right is however more particularly set out viz the clauses "Any wreck of the Sea or of any Goods found Jetsam, Flotsam, or Lagan. The claim of Mr Walter Strickland of Cokethorp Park to "All wreck of the sea and to any Goods found Jetsam, Flotsam and Lagan, Derelict, Boat or Vessel upon the Coast or sea shore adjoining or abutting upon any and all parts of the Township of Flamborough. The claims of Mr Yarburgh Greame of Sewerby House "to all wrecks of the Sea and to {all} any goods found Jetsam, Flotsam, Lagan or Derelict, upon the Coast or Sea shore adjoining and abutting upon any and all parts of the Township of Sewerby-cumMartin. As these claims cover every imaginable description of wreck that may be thrown by the sea upon the Coast or dragged there by manual labour, I request to be informed whether all such is to be delivered to them provided there be to the same le good observing that the only parties who have described the Titles upon which they found their claims and who have named the limits over which they claim rights are Sir Clifford Constable & and Mr Bethell of Rise.

Sir,

I will thank you to request Mr Shacklock to explain whether the Anchors viz mentioned in note marked A are the same as those mentioned in the papers forwarded to you on the 16 Inst. And with reference to those on paper marked B - they must be given up to the Receiver. but the Board of Trade are desirous of carrying this part of the Law, that parties should be put to as little expense and inconvenience as possible therefore if the anchors &c of which Mr Stephenson & Mr Walker have the Custody are safe where they are they can remain with them but before taken away and which probably had better be done at once form no 13 must be filled up in respect of each separate lot and the Owners written authority for them to take possession annexed.
