Thomas Sherley left the lease of Salisbury Farm in his Will
to his wife Ann. But the occupation of the farm and the Hall
becomes rather confused when it is seen that the Land Tax Record
shows his son Edward as Occupier of Salisbury Farm.
Salisbury Hall and Farm were owned by a William Snell who
also owned land in Brill and there are several legal documents
dealing with land and payments of money involving William Snell
and his brother and one or more of the Sherley family.
