This incredible collection of sale particulars has just been donated to the Archive by the family of Charles Head, a Kingsbridge based firm of auctioneers and surveyors that was established in 1902.

Over the years the Head family have collected a large number of these fascinating records, some of which relate to sales as early as 1827 before their firm had begun. We are delighted to be adding these to the Archive’s collection. 

Stay in the loop!
