The Domesday Book records that after the Norman conquest of England Pyrton manor passed to Hugh d'Avranches, 1st Earl of Chester, whose heirs retained it until John de Scotia, 7th Earl of Chester died in 1237. It was then annexed by the Crown, and in 1360 was recorded as part of the Honour of Wallingford. In 1480 King Edward IV gave the manor to the Dean and Chapter of St George's Chapel, Windsor, who remained lords of the manor until about 1870. The statesman Richard Hampden leased the manor from 1669 until his death in 1695, after which it remained with his widow until 1707. The Earl of Macclesfield leased the manor from 1751. A Hugh Hamersley of Old Windsor leased the manor from 1781. The lease remained with his descendants until 1870 when his grandson, another Hugh Hamersley, seems to have bought the manor from the Dean and Chapter of St. George's Chapel. In 1909 Hugh's younger son Edward Samuel Hamersley died without heir and his widow gave Pyrton to her nephew, Major Hugh C.C. Ducat, who changed his surname to Ducat Hamersley. In 1945 the Major left the estate to his son, Colonel Hugh Ducat Hamersley, who still held the estate in the 1960s. Alfred St George Hamersley was a 19th-century barrister, English MP and English rugby union international who played in the first ever international match, went on to captain his country and pioneered the sport in the south of New Zealand and in British Columbia.

Australia Postal Stationery

Envelopes

APS1) 2d KGV violet star embossed cover commercially used to London UK. Rare and  Probably Unique Vic cds. ACSC EP12. The Postal Stationery Catalogue page 196 states 'the whole printing was cancelled-to-order with a Melbourne cds numbered 23 and dated 3 July 1916. The quantity required for UPU distribution was 378.' And it also points out that 'a single printing of 390 envelopes was delivered into stock on 29 June 1916 for purposes of distribution to UPU members.' So that leaves 12 envelopes unaccounted. This has to be one of those 12 covers. So, this is the only known postal use of this envelope. Did an office person just grab one from stock as it covered the postal rate of 1.5d to the UK ( plus late fee cost?) This is not CTO! Cancelled with Spencer St. Melbourne Late Fee cds of July 6 1916, 3 days later than the cto stock. The catalogue value for a CTO used is $300. A Printed to Private Order version of this envelope does exist - see ACSC Postal Stationery Catalogue page 268.  Used price is $500. Supplied with normal for comparison. Price for this rarity $1650

Villeneuve-sur-Yonne is a commune in the Yonne department in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté in north-central France.

The city was founded in 1163 by Louis VII of France to protect the kingdom of France at the boundary of the Champagne. In 1204 King Philip II Augustus held parliament in the city, and Louis IX resided in the city before departing for the Eighth Crusade. In 1594 the city was burnt down. During the French Revolution the name was changed from le-Roi (the king) to sur-Yonne (on the Yonne). In 1870 a memorial for the dead was designed by the sculptor Émile Peynot. The city was governed from 1927 till 1931 by the infamous mayor Marcel Pétiot, who was guillotined in 1946, convicted of 26 killings.  Inwards mail of this period rarely survived. RARE! Price $125

CB582) GB 1992 £10 Banknote & Proof Coin Boxed set with Certificate of Authenticity. 1992 Deluxe 10p Ten Pence Silver Proof 2 Coin set, and Special Edition £10 Ten Pound Banknote Set, Boxed. In 1992, the Royal Mint, in conjunction with the Bank of England, released a very special Limited Issue £10 Ten Pound Banknote, and a 10p Ten Pence Silver Proof 2 Coin Set to commemorate the introduction of the new, smaller 10p Coin into circulation, and the newly designed £10 Ten Pound Banknote. This note is one of the first printed, as outlined on the Bank of England Certificate, and has the distinctive "AO1" serial prefix number to prove just that. This version of the "Tenner" is scarce and the next year 1993 have an additional denomination symbol £10 on each side of the note, so this design only lasted a year or so. This new note depicted of course Charles Dickens and interestingly a CRICKET MATCH - making this a great buy for cricket fans of which there are endless millions out there! From the "Pickwick Papers" famous novel of 1836 we have depicted here the first cricket match between All Muggleton and Dingley Dell that Mr. Pickwick attended with his colleagues. Hard satin lined, velour inset Deep Blue Archive box with brass hinges, and fastener. SCARCE … due to high initial cost in 1992 money, 25 years back. Only 1000 ever made and it is believed they did not sell out so even less than that are in existence. UK retail is £200 = close to $400, our price just $210
