Administrative/Biographical history:

Clay Hill existed near Enfield in 1572 as a small settlement. In the 19th century there was a Claysmore house in the area; and there is still a school in Enfield called Clayesmore.

The New River was a man-made channel bringing water to London from fresh springs in Chadwell and Amwell in Hertfordshire, via reservoirs in Clerkenwell and Islington. It was begun in 1606 as a private enterprise by Hugh Myddleton, but was taken over by the New River Company in 1619.


Scope and content/abstract:

Papers, 1799-1930, collected by the solicitors in the course of their work, comprising deeds and legal documents relating to the Claysmore Estate, including two documents relating to New River, 1821 and 1864.
