Fillingham of Syerston
Fillingham family of Syerston, Nottinghamshire
Accessible to all holders of a readers ticket
[from Scope and Content] This is largely a collection of title deeds with some estate administration and financial papers together with surveys and maps, including a coloured "plotte" of Thorpe in 1619 (DD/FM/65/1). A series of papers relates to a drawn out and costly Chancery suit over the manor of Thorpe, purchased by George Fillingham in 1808 from the Neales of Tollerton and shortly afterward sold to Sir Robert Howe Bromley (DD/FM/59/1-10). The enclosure of Syerston is covered in some detail with copies of the act, award, map, and commissioners' minute book (DD/FM/78/2-4). There is also a detailed survey and map of the parish in its open state (DD/FM/60/4,DD/FM/64/1-2), as well as William Fillingham's own estimate of the improved value of his land after enclosure, and statements of the costs of the enclosure proceedings (DD/FM/60/2). The remainder of the documents are wills and executorship papers of the Fillinghams and related families, and estate papers of George Fillingham's clients. A few archives of the Earls of Rutland's Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire estates which obviously strayed into Fillingham hands from Belvoir during the course of their estate agency to the Manners family include a series of 16th and 17th century leases of the Greasley Castle estate, coal mining agreements between the Manners and an Ilkeston, (Derbyshire) yeoman, in 1616, and Major Charles White of Greasley, a local Parliamentarian commander, in 1641 and 1647 (DD/FM/80/1-13). The archives of William Fillingham are unfortunately scanty, but those of his son, George, are especially voluminous. The latter's meticulously kept and extraordinarily detailed account books are a model of their kind. They were begun within a week of his father's death in 1795, when he was 21, and were continued in his own hand, until he was in his 70s. His mother, each of his sisters, and later his children, all had their own separate accounts, which were "allowed" by the head of the family at the end of each year, and signed by both parties. As every minute item of income and expenditure of himself and his family is recorded (even down to pence lost and found), the ledgers afford an extremely detailed insight into the professional, economic and social life of the Fillinghams in the early 19th century, and particularly of the running of the estate and home farm. One volume, for example, records the exact activities of each of his agricultural labourers each day between 1839 and 1844, with details of their wages.
