researching a 1731 land deed for a Manx property for which the vendor
was Charles Shimmin + wife of Burgey, Lancashire - a quick? google
failed to find it but don't have immediate access to my 1831 topological
dictionary - any ideas where it is or what its 'correct' name would be -
the writing was quite clear but only occurred once in the deed.
My first thoughts were around the West Derby area of Lancashire as
Liverpool was starting to draw in several - they were selling their
estate for £113
