In the second half of the 18th century Cranbourne Chase was marked by that controversy which developed with acerbity between Lord Rivers and the group of landed gentry, who came to be known as the Proprietors, for the disfranchisement of the chase. Baron Rivers anonymously published the correspondence between the parties presumably because "the true state of that negotiation, and the intentions of the parties engaged, have not been perfectly understood"(p.1).
