Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 12 Mar 1824

March 12th 1824 I do not think it would be possible to fit up as many rooms at Bywell at a trifling expense as you would require for your whole establishment but I could with care by opening out a few windows get as many ready as you would need for yourself and two man servants. I should be able to occupy such part of the house as not to incommode yourself and by bringing up the Dairymaid from Bradley I should not require any of your female staff ... You would then be enabled to point out a

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 16 Mar 1824

Mr Beaumont March 6th 1824 …Three tenants have had but one return made them and having had a bad harvest last season will have a claim on your [struck out: generosity] consideration ... I most sincerely wish you could spend a few weeks here or at Bradley I am convinced nothing would add more to your interests in the county than passing a few weeks or even days in it.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 26 Mar 1824

Mr Beaumont (undated) … pointed out to me as for the probable site of your new mansion. We are both of opinion that the present house may be converted at so much less expense ... and that the water may be effectually banked out. If you should be determined to erect a new house it would require many years before the necessary ground, and fluctuations could be got up.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 5 Apr 1824

Mr Beaumont April 5th 1824 James Briggs received a letter yesterday from Mr Tatton directing him to bring the bay mare and Gig <....> immediately up to London. I conceive Mr Tatton must have made some mistake as the horse could not arrive in London before the 15th, on which day you give the dinner to the officers of the Northumberland Militia at Hexham.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 22 Apr 1824

Mr Beaumont at Pall Mall April 22nd 1824 I am sorry to have to communicate to you the destruction of the farm building at Acomb yesterday by fire. By great exertion we saved the dwelling house and a cottage but the barn stables sheds and cowhouses were all destroyed. The fire originated from a spark of fire in removing some hot embers out of an oven falling in some dry straw which this communicated with the straw in the fold yard and instantly the whole in a blaze the wind blowi

Letter – Martin Morrison to George Crawhall – 28 Apr 1824

Newcastle 28 April 1824 Mr George Crawhall – New House Weardale Under the impression that the Lead Company are working in the Copyhold Ground at Stanhope, I recommend that you lose no time in mentioning the circumstance to the Company Agents, also to Mr Rippon, and that you will exert yourself to obtain all the information possible from the old Inhabitants and Workmen, of the names of the situations described in the Surrender, so that the Boundarys may be as accurately defined as

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 2 May 1824

Mr Beaumont May 2nd 1824 I cannot learn that Sir J Swinburn or any of his friends have come forward in any shape to answer your speech and the received opinion is that it is unanswerable … Sir J S has lost much of his popularity before and seems now to have sunk so far in the estimation of every one (save those bound to him from self interest) that any thing he may attempt to thwart your virtue at a future election can only cause disappointment to himself and show him the estimation

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Cook – 4 May 1824

Mr Cook May 4th 1824 The gent who has had care of my childrens education left last week and I am extremely anxious that they should be as short a time as possible without a tutor as I am convinced they will soon lose the little they have learnt. Mr Beaumont the gent to whom I am land agent has considered to occupy the house I now reside in himself and I am consequently obliged to remove to a distance of four miles.

Mr Beaumont May 15th 1824 I have sent by this days coach a box containing plans and prospectus sent to me by Mr Chapman ... The alteration at the Hall is proceeding with all possible despatch ... it appears the railway if carried into execution would take the same line as the intended canal was to have passed and you will observe that it would pass through the centre of the Bearl and Short Wood and proceed past Peepy intersecting the whole of your estate in the north side of the River. It is

Letter – Charles Winn to Raine – 19 May 1824

Nostell 19th May 1824 Mr. Raine, I duly received your letter of the 16th of last Month and am sorry I have so long delayed replying to it. With respect to the Swans, I must own that I do not feel by any means satisfied that the six which came here some weeks since are those which are <missing> from the Bretton Water. The fact is there have been two flights, consisting of six each, seen at this place at the same time and this circumstance I mentioned to Colnl.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 31 May 1824

Mr Beaumont May 31st 1824 ..I understand Mr E Swinburne has called upon several gentlemen in the neighbourhood to contradict the substance of your speech at Hexham. Col Carr told me ten days ago he had received a letter from Sir J Swinburn the contents of which he would communicate to you and Mr E.S. was to meet Col Coulson by appointment at Col Carr last Tuesday to contradict your statement. I shall see the Col tomorrow and in case he has not made you acquainted with the particulars of thi

Diary – James Losh – 17 Jun 1824

It appears that Beaumont’s errand when he last came into Northd. was to challenge E. Swinburne for contradicting the assertions in his speech at Hexham. All this shews the great error on the part of the Swinburnes in not shortly denying the truth of those assertions in the same paper in which they appeared.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 2 Jul 1824

Mr Beaumont (undated) ..Every person who has been made acquainted with the correspondence is fully convinced that Sir J Swinburn has been guilty of a gross mistatement and are at a loss to know how he means next to proceed. Every step he has taken from first to last has tended to defeat his own object and his friends now admit that he has mislead them and are all <....> to see how he will set about to extricate himself. Mr Bird seems not to wish the correspondence to gain great public

I shall next get on with the inside work of the new kitchen and lower the present stacks of chimneys.

Mr Beaumont July 21st 1824 I was not able to state in my last letter the day on which the judge will enter Newcastle. I rode over there yesterday and learnt that it will be on Thursday the 19th of August. I hope nothing will prevent you being in Northumberland at that time as considerable disappointment has been felt by your friends that you were not at the Races.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 24 Jul 1824

Mr Beaumont July 24th 1824 are determined at any rate to take the dam down. (As to the absolute necessity of this; I am aware your opinion is at variance with my own as I have every reason to believe should a bridge be erected and the stone taken from the south side of the fish lock to build it with it would give the River so much more scope that no flood <....> be apprehended and would save greatest and <.... ornament> to the place.
