BLESSED 1765 Holy Bible & book of prayer - Truscott Plantagenet family tree RARE
England: A very old (1765) and delicate but beautiful and special book. BLESSED! This beautiful and sacred, blessed bible from 1765 is a very special piece of English history The hope is that it can once again be part of the Truscott family of Devon or descendants of the Plantagenet family. The History so far... ************************** Given as a gift from a priest in Devon in 2013. He received it from the nuns of the St Francis convent in Posbury, Crediton, where the they had been the caretakers of the book. The convent was discontinued in 2014. ! ! It has been blessed by the nuns of the St Francis convent ! ! Was wrapped in a pig skin vellum contract referencing a sale of land, hand written and signed by one of the Plantagenet family, William Courtenay (in 1495) with a wax seal. (Unfortunately the vellum was stolen by members of the dishonourable Garbutt family in 2011 and is no longer available) - a possible petition or case could be brought against them by the Truscotts or Plantagenets to return the item to them - ************************** Back of the book shows handwritten entries circa 1760s of the Truscott family up to circa 1824 ,listing the family tree births and deaths. Covers several pages. Private Listing. All of my items have been stored dry and smoke free. Will be well packed and sent Royal Mail Special Delivery. Psst... I have plenty of other items so take a look and grab yourself something special!
