Immediate Source of Acquisition

The exact history and origin of much of the material is unknown. Many of the transcripts may be non-contemporary copies of material in the P.R.O., others are additional to them. The papers were described in the Sotheby's sale catalogue as 'Important Papers of George Pretyman Tomline Bishop of Winchester, Sold by order of George Pretyman Esq., Orwell Part Ipswich'. Bishop Pretyman Tomline died in 1827, and the transcripts of correspondence would appear to be later than this. Purchased by the Library at Sotheby's, 1937.
