George Clarke

  • RC0268
  • Archief
  • 1690-1691

Fonds consists of 50 items, most of which are letters to Clarke concerning military matters falling under his control as Secretary at War. Several of the letters were sent to Clarke from Mullingar, where the English army established a military depot in 1690, and were received in various places as he moved through the countryside: at Dublin (Mar. 1690); Limerick (Aug. 1690); Cashells (Sept. 1690); Dublin (Nov. 1690); Clonmel (Dec. 1690); Kilkenny (Dec. 1960). Other letters concern Clarke’s personal affairs, with letters from his mother (who nonetheless also informed her son of military matters, as her husband had also been Secretary at War) and from the women who managed his manor at Kilkenny during his absence.

Bill of sale [Kauff-Brief.]

  • MS130
  • Stuk
  • 3 June 1716

Item consists of a bill of sale [Kauff-Brief] by Andreas Roessner, burgess and basketmaker at Kelheim [Kerbelmacher zu Kelhaimb] in Bavaria, and Maria his wife. The other party to the sale is named Christopher [Nachhilter?], burgess and soap-boiler [Saiffensieder] at Kelheim. The bill ends with the date 3 June 1716. Afterward there is an authorizing signature by Johann Albrecht Notthaft von Weissentein, who acquired the lands of Affecking, now part of the city of Kelheim, through marriage. Notthaft died on 9 August 1727 at the age of 79.

The bill is an unbound manuscript written in ink, now faded to light brown, executed on a single sheet of laid paper in folio format. The paper bears a stamp in black ink, 3 cm in diameter, reading “(VI) Kreizer-Papier,” a paper manufacture which dates to about the end of the seventeenth century. It also bears a watermark of a fleur-de-lis. Beside the signature of Notthaft, there is a black wax seal, 2 cm in diameter, depicting a coat-of-arms surmounted by a crown with the letters “HANFVW” [ie Hans Albrecht Notthaft, Freiherr von Weissenstein?]. The bill has been folded numerous times and bears the title “Kauff Brief” with comments and the date 3 June 1716 on the outer fold. The language appears to be mainly High German with some dialectic peculiarities.

Eighteenth Century Newsletters collection

  • MS139
  • Collectie
  • 1719-1720

This collection of newsletters was written in London by John Farr and his son John Farr Junior between 25 June 1719 and 10 September 1720. They were sent periodically to Francis Thistlethwayte in Winterslow, Wiltshire. The number sent varies from five to fourteen per month. The content includes: military and naval affairs, especially the war with Spain; foreign news from Europe, Jamaica, Newfoundland, and the Americas; news from Scotland and Ireland; commerce and shipping movements; natural disasters such as earthquakes; criminal affairs, spies, murders and arrests; deaths and the funeral of Joseph Addison; legal reports, stock reports and quotations, South Sea Bubble, politics and Parliamentary affairs.

The most likely Francis Thistlethwayte to be a recipient of the newsletters was born in 1658 and attended New College Oxford. The date of his death is uncertain but his father, Alexander (1636-1715) was long-lived. John Farr signed one newsletter dated 12 December 1719. There is a note on the verso of the 17 December 1719 newsletter by John Farr Junior.

Genaelogy and Lineage Chart of the Lords of Gera [Genealogia und Stammen-Tafel der Herren von Gera]

  • MS115
  • Stuk
  • [1727]-[after 1755]

Item comprises a manuscript codex, bound but without covers, completed by a single unidentified scribe sometime after 1755. It contains selections concerning the lords of Gera copied from Johann Georg Adam von Hoheneck’s printed books on the genealogy of Austrian lords, with scribal additions from an unknown source.

The first and largest portion of the copied text replicates title page and ff. 139-148 of Johann Georg Adam, Freiherr von Hoheneck, The Laudable Lords, Noble Houses of the Arch-Duchy of Austria on the Enns, as Prelates, Lordships, Knights and Cities, or, Genealogical and Historical Description ... First Volume [Die Löbliche Herren Herren-Stände Deß Ertz-Hertzogthumb Oesterreich ob der Enns Als Prälaten, Herren, Ritter, und Städte, oder, Genealog- und Historische Beschreibung ... Erster Theil ...] (Passau: Gabriel Mangold, 1727). This portion appears in the manuscript [1r-11v] under the title “Genealogy and Lineage Chart of the Lords of Gera from the Time They Came into this Land” [“Genealogia und Stammen-Tafel Der Herren von Gera von der Zeit, Sie in die es Land kommen”].

The second portion comes from the addenda printed in the same book, the first volume of Die Löbliche Herren Herren Stände, on f. 695. It appears in the manuscript [12r] under the title “Additions and Correction” [“Addenda et Corrigenda”].

The third and final portion derives from f. 15 of Johann Georg Adam, Freiherr von Hoheneck, Supplement or Addendum to the First Part of the Genealogical and Historical Description ... continued until the End of 1732 [Supplementum oder Anhang, zu dem ersten Theill, der Genealog- und Historischen Beschreibung ... continuirt bis Ende 1732] (Passau: Gabriel Mangold, 1733). It appears in the manuscript [12v-13v] under this title, sub-titled “Gera.” At least one addition from a source other than Hoheneck has been made by the scribe in this section, as the last entry mentions the death of Johann Ernst von Gera in 1755, the year after Hoheneck's own death.

The remaining leaves [14r-20v] are blank.

The manuscript is inscribed on laid paper, bearing two separate watermarks, “MI” and a floral motif, and has been arranged in folio format and bound with string. There are no covers. The pages bear folio numbers taken from the printed originals on the recto of each leaf. With full colour painted illustration of the coat-of-arms of Gera [2r]. The text is written in High German. The manuscript bears a title page which replicates the title page of the first volume of Hoheneck’s principal book, suggesting that there was no original intention to append the text from the supplemental volume. This is, however, contradicted by the fact that the ink and penmanship are consistent throughout, suggesting that the whole manuscript was accomplished together at one time.

Hoheneck, Johann Georg Adam, Freiherr von

1766 Madrid riots and Instruction Against the Jesuits

  • MS112
  • Stuk
  • 1760-1766

Indice. Tumulto de Madrid del anno 1766 .... Instruccion a Principes an malos Jesuitas.

Spanish and Portuguese manuscript bound in vellum. Notation on spine almost illegible but appears to read "PAPEL NARROS". 342 unnumbered pages. The first approx. half of the ms. is in Spanish. It concerns the 1766 riots in Madrid and consists of sections in various hands. The second section, ("Instruccaõ a Principes, sobre a Politica dos Padres Jesuittas") a translation from Italian into Portuguese, consists of instructions to rulers against the Jesuits, apparently in a single hand, dated Lisbon, 1760. The manuscript is in fragile condition: some leaves have become detached from the spine.
