On Ebay there's currently an "acknowledgement of deed by a married woman", specifically a document signed in 1861 by a Caroline Sophia SUMMERFIELD, wife of Arthur, regarding a property in Wing. Other names on the deed are Mary Faulkner, John Archer, Henry Charles Adams, George Capes & Charles Evans.

I won't be able to buy it, but if someone else out there does get it I'd love to know the specifics of which property it was and how the other names tie in (tenants?). Mary FAULKNER and Henry Charles ADAMS both lived at Burcott in the 1861 census, the other names don't ring a bell. So if the lucky buyer does read this blog post, please leave a comment with the details!
