Rare 1625 document for a British architectural treasure

King of England, Scotland, and Ireland (born 1600) from 1625 until his execution in the wake of the English Civil War in 1649. Following the Protectorate rule of Oliver Cromwell and his son, Richard, Charles’s line was restored to the throne with the succession of his son, Charles II, in 1660, whose reign was retroactively dated to 1649. Manuscript DS, signed “Charles R,” one page, 7.25 x 10.75, April 1, 1625. Document sent to the Earl of Derby, ordering the Lord Lieutenant of Chester and the Judges of Assize to defer the hearings of Sir George Vernon’s appeal against an unfavorable verdict regarding the Manor of Haslington, in which the king states that he is “willing that all our loving subjects and particularly our judges…Should have a just and legal proceeding in their causes.” Nicely double-matted and framed with an engraved portrait to an overall size of 19 x 16.75. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, moderate overall creases, and a few small stains. An especially interesting document, as Haslington Hall has been designated a ‘Grade 1’ listed building by the English Heritage governmental body; this is the highest level of protection afforded by the cultural ministry, with other such sites including Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster, and Royal Albert Hall. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
