An auction poster for the sale of "Valuable Farming Stock" at Mr. Fitch's Brookman's (sic) Park Farm in North-Mims (which is what the parish was called at the time), on April 27, 1815, included 6 Good Milch Cows, 3 two-year old Heifers, 3 yearling Ditto, a pair of working Oxen, and 2 weaning Calves; 3 two-year old Colts, and 1 yearling Ditto; Sow with 11 Pigs, and Ditto with 9 Ditto; about 10 Loads of Beans, 16 Qrs. Oats, and 1 Qr. of Malt; Waggon, Carts, Ploughs, and Farming Implements.

The poster and auction sheet were lent to to the site by a local resident so that we could digitise the information and make it available to the public.
