  Partington Notebooks :  Partington Notebooks, B901-PAR: References to Elias de Tonge and Henry de Tonge. Research notes of John Heaton Partington.

Have checked through Vols. 6, 7, 8, 9 and part of vol. 4.  There are many more volumes.

The following extracts were from Volume 6.  I was unable to tell from the notebooks what the original sources of the documents were, they appeared to be local deeds relating mainly to land in Farnworth, and were possibly copied from the Towneley MSS at Chetham Library, Manchester. None of the transcripts were dated, but I estimate they are all between 1220 - 1300. I have noted down the names of other people mentioned in the documents to help approximate their dates. The number in brackets was written next to each entry, and is presumably the page number in the original data source.
