Image of sale particulars of parts of the Marquess of Abergavenny's Ewyas Lacy estates in 11 Lots [INDEX]
At an auction held on the 30th October 1866 at the Angel Hotel, Abergavenny, 52 Lots of Monmouthshire and Herefordshire properties were offered for sale on the instructions of the Marquess of Abergavenny. Of these, eleven were in Ewyas Lacy and one in Ewyas Harold the others all being in Monmouthshire.
The sale realised £7261 but with 14 properties, with a total reserved price of £7852, being unsold on the day. Abergavenny solicitors Messrs Walford & Gabb, who arranged the sale on behalf of the Marquess were disappointed with the sale but reported to the Marquess that if the reserved prices could be lowered there was some prospect of additional sales being negotiated. Agents for the Marquess recommended that some reserves could be marginally reduced but suggested that Land should not be sold at less than £10 per acre.
All the Lots in his Lordships Manor of Ewyas Lacy were properties which had previously been Copyholds held for lives which had expired and had not been renewed.
