Mon­son Col­lec­tion to stay in Lin­colnshire Ar­chives

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

A ma­jor fam­ily ar­chive is to be pur­chased and put on per­ma­nent dis­play at Lin­colnshire Ar­chives. The Mon­son Col­lec­tion dates from 1221 to 1947 and com­prises the es­tate ar­chive of the Barons Mon­son of Bur­tonby-Lin­coln, to­gether with fam­ily records and an­ti­quar­ian pa­pers. The col­lec­tion, stored at Lin­colnshire Ar­chives, was put up for sale by the Mon­son’s fam­ily trust, rais­ing the risk it would be di­vided. How­ever, Lin­colnshire county coun­cil pur­chased it with grants from the Na­tional Her­itage Me­mo­rial Fund and Friends of Na­tional Li­braries.
