The sale of the Parmoor Estate

The 1954 notes on Parmoor
The 1946 sale
[ Amongst the many papers which I have inherited is a prospectus for the sale at auction of the Parmoor Estate on 18th July 1946.
( .pdf 12 Mbytes )
In the sale document the estate is divided into some 46 lots as follows:
I have no record of what happened at the auction. There is a paragraph in the sale document as follows: "Lots 1 to 11 [which are the mansion and the immediately adjacent properties] . . . will first be offered together as one lot; if not so sold, Lot 1 will then be offered and if not sold then lots 2 to 11 will be withdrawn"
The History section of the Sue Ryder website says that "On February 11th 1947 the second Lord Parmoor sold the house and 12 acres to the Community of St. Katharine of Alexandria" and we must therefore assume that it did indeed not sell in the 1946 sale and that lots 2 - 11 must have been sold later.
If anybody can help with further information then I would be pleased to include it here. ]
