that was not resolved until the Heworth Enclosure Act of 1817. One page has a tipped in handwritten notice of aan additional motion presented at the meeting. 200mm x 160mm. [1766]. "At a meeting of many owners and occupiers of various messuages of the six several parishes, to wit, Saint Sampsons, St Trinity in the Kings Court alias Christ Parish, St Trinity Goodramgate with its members, St Saviour with its members, St Cuthbert with its members, and St Maurice without Monk Barr, in Monk Ward in the City of York; who were summoned to appear at St Anthony's Hall in Peaseholm within the said Ward, this 14th day of November in the Year of our Lord 1766, by Mr Ralph Howard an unfree citizen of the said City... " The meeting was opened by Mr Mortimer who informed those present that they were here "to consult together upon ways and means to forward... amicably, an Inclosure of the Common or Moor of Heworth... and for dividing the same, and for exempting certain Farms or parcel of Ground called the Granges, the Great Hall Fields, the Little Hall Fields.... Citizens, owners, occupiers and resident in certain other ancient messuages within the said Ward, were by the said Petition intended to be excluded from any common, or right of stray in any of the places aforesaid." York possessed a large tract of grazing to the south of the city: Knavesmire, lying partly, and Hob Moor, wholly, within the city boundary. These rough and poorly drained pastures were used almost exclusively by the city; limited intercommoning was enjoyed on Knavesmire by the inhabitants of Middlethorpe and by the lord of Dringhouses manor, and on Hob Moor by the inhabitants of Holgate. The citizen's use of this pasture was restricted at least by the 16th century: it was enjoyed by Micklegate Ward and by certain limited parts of the other wards, and stints were imposed on the commoners, who were allowed to graze cows and horses but not sheep. By the 17th and 18th centuries, payments were being made for each animal, to meet the expenses of maintaining the pasture. Only one other tract falls into this category of permanent whole-year pasturage: that part of Heworth Moor which lay within the boundary of the liberty of the city. In 1772 Monk Ward still enjoyed that part of Heworth Moor within the city boundary, together with average in Grange Closes, Hall Field, and a small area west of the Foss. When extinguished by the Enclosure Acts of 1817 and 1818 this average was said to cover about 217 acres.

ex]. It is signed and sealed by H[ugh] Henshall, Anne Williamson, Anne Brindley, John Bettington, and Murray Forbes. 420mm x 330mm. 1804 The Oxford canal was one of the earliest to be constructed in England. It was authorised in 1769, and the Oxford Canal Navigation Co was formed overseen by James Brindley. Brindley was already building the Trent and Mersey Canal and had built the Bridgewater Canal, and now the Oxford Canal and the Coventry Canal were being asked of him. Sadly Brindley died when only about 16 miles from the Hawkesbury end had been cut. However, his assistant Samuel Simcock took over and the Oxford Canal reached Napton in 1775 and Banbury in 1778. Brindley married Anne Henshall on 8 December 1765 when he was 49 and she was 19. Anne's brother, Hugh Henshall, was involved in canal construction himself, on the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal. JAMES BRINDLEY lies amongst these Rocks, He made Canals, Bridges, and Locks, To convey Water; he made Tunnels for Barges, Boats, and Air-Vessels; He erected several Banks, Mills, Pumps, Machines, with Wheels and Cranks; He was famous t'invent Engines, Calculated for working Mines; He knew Water, its Weight and Strength, Turn'd Brooks, made Soughs to a great Length; While he used the Miners' Blast, He stopp'd Currents from running too fast; There ne'er was paid such Attention As he did to Navigation. But while busy with Pit or Well, His Spirits sunk below Level; And, when too late, his Doctor found, Water sent him to the Ground.

Joseph Barber (1757 - July 16, 1811) was an English landscape painter and art teacher, and an early member of the Birmingham School of landscape painters. Born in Newcastle upon Tyne, Barber moved to Birmingham in the 1770s, where he worked painting papier-mâché and japanned goods. By the mid-1780s he was well established as the town's first drawing master, with an academy training artists on Great Charles Street. His pupils there included David Cox, William Radclyffe and Samuel Lines, who was to form his own academy in Newhall Street in 1807. Examples if his work are in the British Museum, The V & A., and Birmingham Art Gallery.
