Product Description

A large impressive 2 volume leather bound Holy Bible that was the property of Ann Inch, who at the time was inheriting the family seat of the Connock – Marshall, at Treworgey Manor, in the Duchy of Cornwall.

Condition is good with a bit of wear of the outer covers. The leather on the edge of the spines has split, but the binding is well secure. The Bible is the first bound edition of the version produced by the Reverends George D’Oyly and Richard Mant. It was originally launched in 1812 as a weekly supplement, with the proper book edition coming out in 1817. Therefore it is referred to as the first edition 1817.

The full title is: THE HOLY BIBLE ACCORDING TO THE AUTHORIZED VERSION; WITH NOTES EXPLANATORY AND PRACTICAL TAKEN PRINCIPALLY FROM THE MOST EMINENT WRITERS OF THE UNITED CHURCH OF ENGLAND AND IRELAND: TOGETHER WITH APPROPRIATE INTRODUCTIONS, TABLES, INDEXES, MAPS, AND PLANS: PREPARED AND ARRANGED BY THE REV. GEORGE D’OYLY, B.D. AND THE REV. RICHARD MANT, D.D. DOMESTICK CHAPLAINS TO HIS GRACE THE LORD ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY. UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE SOCIETY FOR PROMOTING CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE.

The 2 volumes were printed in Oxford by BENSLEY,COOKE, AND COLLINGWOOD, PRINTERS TO THE UNIVERSITY. They are leather bound in brown calf, with gild tooling and decoration . The front cover has written in gold letters: ANN INCH 1817. The title on the spine is; MANT’S HOLY BIBLE and the 1st volume covers GENESIS TO SOLOMON’S SONG. Volume 2 ISAIAH TO REVELATION. The inside cover on both volumes contains the family coat of arms with crest for the Connock – Marshall family.

The first John Connock, stated by some sources to be a tanner from Wiltshire, became Receiver of the Duchy of Cornwall in 1532. After the dissolution of the monasteries he acquired the manor of Hagland, which consisted mainly of town property in Liskeard, and purchased other properties, including Treworgey Manor in St. Cleer. He became a member of parliament and built a house in Liskeard, which still survives. He died in 1581, during his fourth term as mayor of the borough. Several of the Connocks served as members of parliament, justices of the peace and sheriffs of Cornwall, but none achieved any distinction in a political, military or literary career (although one branch of the family moved to Spain and were subsequently ennobled). During the first half of the eighteenth century financial difficulties seem to have arisen, as the estates were frequently mortgaged. Nicholas Connock, the last of the male line, died in 1757 and bequeathed the family property to his wife Mary. On her death in 1804, her sister-in-law Mary Cotton having already died, the estates passed to her cousins Miss Ann Hodge and Mrs. Arminell Inch, from them, in 1815, to Miss Ann Inch.
