Original (signed) document & photo
|Date:||30 April 1760|
|Good, consistent with age. Names, signatures and bulk of document clear, although some words are illegible along the folds. Outside cover a little dusty, but not unreasonably so for its age.|
|Parchment : 1 sheet 69cm x 50cm with 4 wax seals and revenue stamps.|
|Summary of contents:|
John Greene of Fareham, Hampshire. Tanner
William Greene of Bromwith (?), parish of Titchfield, Hampshire. Esquire
James Stares of Newland, Parish of Titchfield, Hampshire, Yeoman
Elizabeth Greene of Fareham, Hampshire. Widow
William Humphrys of Broadwater, Sussex. Malster.
The first 4 people named above are selling a malthouse and land called Troyes or Braziers in Broadwater, Sussex to William Humphrys for £310.
We are told that the property comes from the will of Paul Greene of Fareham, Hants, who left it to his sons John and William (named in this contract) and also Paul (deceased). Elizabeth Greene is the widow of Paul Greene (the elder) who was appointed as one of his executors. James Stares comes in to it as one of the Trustees of Paul Greene (the younger).
We are told of an interesting complication which is that the debts of Paul Greene (the elder) are likely to exceed his assets by more than £5000.
