CR2747: Correspondence and a few estate papers addressed for the most part to Evelyn P. Shirley (1812-1882).
A part of CR0229 was contained in 18 deed boxes. The arrangement of their contents as found bears some relation to that of the "Schedule of evidences of the Shirley family" drawn up by Evelyn Philip Shirley between 1851 and 1874, but the correspondence between the two is not complete. The boxes have been numbered as far as possible in the order of the "Schedule" (CR229/20) and the numbers in brackets refer to pages in it. The remainder of the collection was found loose and the items have been arranged under headings and numbered consecutively. Where these form coherent groups their order has remained undisturbed.
