Collection Description

Scope and Content Note

The Crackpot Collection was acquired "many years ago" by dealer David Weatherley. He described it as a "rare and historically interesting collection in total of 91 documents from the Garth family, dating from 1639." Tina L. Stark bought it from Weatherley in 2015 and donated it to the MacMillan Law Library in 2017. The collection consists primarily of various types of manor court documents from the Swaledale region of Yorkshire and correspondence of members of the Garth family, long-time residents of the village of Crackpot. The documents are a mix of vellum and paper. The earliest dates from 1639/40 and the latest from 1908.
