Moved here just over 3 years ago to kings parade. The property was built in the 1930’s, but was only registered about 10 years ago. The last owner left us all the old legal documents going way back and I have been looking at them and found this plan from the 1920’s that show not only the planned development but shows the sea was known as the ‘German Ocean’. I just felt I should share this bit of history with you.

that's fascinating John! After one year of moving to Holland on Sea, the previous owners sent me all the paperwork going back to 1906. I have OS maps, mortgage applications with wax stamps, licenses to sell milk and bread etc as my house used to be a dairy, Ironmongers and general hardware shop and mini market lol
 I'll try to scan them on and upload them but i spent days going through them as it was one of the first houses built post the Oakwood Pub and there's nothing on the maps.
I'l check to see if there's anything regarding the German Ocean.

You may be interested in this map from I believe 1917 which is part of our papers.

When we started to buy the property, we found it was made of two separate bits of land that had been merged. When we asked for more details, the sellers solicitors said it was so long ago there will be no further records. But when we moved in, we found a pack of old documents all folded up and found the merger of two bits land was in 1939. Also it had all the old legal papers going back to October 1866 of all the land transfers, wills and mortgages etc and on more recent (1920’s) restrictions on not to sell products etc from our property!!.

I love looking at old paperwork.

When we bought our house, the solicitor sent us all the paperwork pertaining to previous owners and conveyancing documents.

One of these documents, dated the twenty seventh day of March One thousand nine hundred and sixty-eight, was for a parcel of land at the back of the property being sold to the The Urban District Council of Clacton, to be used as a car park.

These papers were invaluable to us some years ago, when TDC decided they were going to turn the Wellesley Road car park into a market at weekends, as the market that used to be situated on the land where Aldi is now, could no longer be used.

We hastily contacted TDC and told them that they could not use that plot of land, as per the agreement dated 1968, and they dismissed us. We then photocopied the documents, which clearly stated in paragraph 2 (c), that "to use the Scheduled property thereafter only as a car park", signed by the Chairman and Clerk of the Council.

They then admitted there was indeed a clause and backed down. Yay!

I started this to look at the history of our plot as I felt the plan and words were not correct. Have been in touch with Land Registry and had to sent them copy of the documents going back to 1866.

Just had a formally apology from Land Registry, they had made an error when the land was first registered 10 years ago. Sent me a new plan and new documents. All good, but now noticed that they are conditions/restrictions from the original sale of the plot. The trade of an innkeeper victualler or retail of wine or beer cannot be done on site. Also no caravan or any form of wheeled sleeping unit can be kept or used and no swing or roundabout to be erected, made or used on site.

But it does not say I cannot keep the trampoline I got for the grandchildren - YES
