Purchase of the Ash Estate
The Mettle House Estate was bought by Job Meigh.
He was already negotiating with Charles Harvey for the purchase of the adjacent
Negotiations were sufficiently advanced towards the end of 1836 for Charles Harvey to give notice to his tenant, John Hassell, who was farming 120 acres of land on both sides of the present Ash Bank Road.
|His farming stock was advertised for sale in the Staffordshire Advertiser on the 26th of November 1836:|
