Algernone POTTS of the Cathedral of Norwich, Norfolk. Esquire

Henry YOUNGE of Norwich, Norfolk. Hosyer.

SUBJECT
Henry Younge is buying property in Norwich from Algernone Potts and his wife Frances, formerly the wife of Thomas CRANE. The property is a "Capital Messuage" in the parishes of St Peter Hungate and Sts Simon and Jude, bounded on the South by Princes Inn Lane.

Note that this document relates to the same transaction as in document number 0501051. It is for the "further assurance" of the property to Henry Younge, but I am not sure exactly what it achieves!
