Vanneck of Heveningham papers

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Vanneck

Scope and Contents

It has seemed appropriate to designate the collection as the VANNECK PAPERS even though it contains little that relates directly to the Vanneck family. Most of the surviving papers concern the administration of the Heveningham estate. A subsidiary and self-contained section consists of papers of the Arcedeckne family, formerly of Glevering Hall, Suffolk, and of their estates there and in Jamaica, c.1744-1848. (Charles Andrew Vanneck, 3rd Baron Huntingfield, married Louisa, only daughter of Andrew Arcedeckne, in 1839).


  • 1180-1942 (1180 is an approximation for 'late 12C deeds')


Conditions Governing Access

Unless restrictions apply, the collection is open for consultation by researchers using the Manuscripts Reading Room at Cambridge University Library.
