Description:
Paper : 32cm x 42cm 9 sheets. This is a manuscript copy of 2 Indentures on laid paper. There is nothing to indicate when the copy was made - not even a watermark. The type of paper suggests it may be early 19th century.
Summary of contents:
PARTIES
Richard SENIOR of Barnsley. Butcher
John GREENWOOD of Barnsley, Yorkshire. Merchant.
Foljanbe WOOD of Barnsley, Yorkshire. Mercer.
Rev Obadiah LODGE of Hereford Hill, Barnsley, Yorkshire.

SUBJECT
Both Indentures relate to a dwelling house in Barnsley with adjoining butcher's shop opposite the 'Ring of Bells' together with 2 closes of land totalling 4 acres. The closes are known as 'the Field Close or Allotment from the Church Field' and the 'Far Shaw Close'.

The 2 Indentures are a Lease for a Year at the rent of a peppercorn made on 17/05/1791 followed by the Release made on 18/5/1791. The effect is that the first 3 named are selling the property to the Rev Obadiah Lodge for 400.

NB. the notes written on the cover say that the second Indenture is a mortgage, but it doesn't look like it to me!
