Subject
Michael and Henry Fellows give a lease to James Bedingham on property at 53 Harman Street, Parish of St Leonard, Shoreditch, Middlesex for 80 years for 355 and at a rent of 5/15/-d. per annum.

This property was part of a larger area belonging to the trustees of the will of a Mrs Fellows The buildings on the property were erected by Thomas King Dewell. The lease is made 'at the request and by the direction of James Harman' but it isn't made clear why he comes into it. I am guessing that Michael Pearson and Henry Fellows are the executors or trustees of Mrs Fellows.
