TitleThe Bagshawe of Oakes Records: Volume One (Part One)
DescriptionAs both sides of the family were descended from younger sons, records of either before the time of Henry Gill are not very numerous. There are some early Wormhill deeds, including several relating to a forestership in the Peak. Deeds to the Oakes from the reign of Elizabeth are also here. Some documents relate to Henry Westby, the Parliamentary captain. There are also deeds of the Banester and Drake families of Barnoldswick; the Drake estate was inherited by William Bagshawe of the Oakes.
