Kinoulton Estate Auction 1919

The catalogue for the Kinoulton Estate Auction in 1919 represents a remarkable record, a snapshot of a point of time just after the First World War. The Estate boundaries ran across the present-day parishes of Kinoulton, Widmerpool and Hickling.

This copy of the catalogue (below) is part of the Wadkin archive and, fascinatingly, includes handwritten notes detailing the actual prices paid against many of the properties.

The catalogue would have originally included two plans/maps; unfortunately, these are missing from this copy.

APPEAL FOR HELP: if you have access to either of these plans we would be very keen to see them and, if possible, we would like to add copies to this page to complete the record. We would also be keen to add any information available about the earlier owners of the Estate and the reasons for the sale.
