This appears to be the 'Release' portion of a standard 'Lease and Release' transaction since there is mention of a Lease for a Year made on the previous day. Thomas Hearle is releasing to John Millett property at the request and by the consent of Arthur Newman the elder and Arthur Newman the younger. The property is in East and West Polgreane (now Polgreen) in the Parish of Ludgvan Cornwall.
