Rev Thomas Powell of the Parish of Tarrington, Herefordshire.
Thomas Powell obtains a lease for William Butt at the rent of a peppercorn on a burgage plot in the town of Ledbury of about 40ft x 17ft. (Many medieval boroughs were laid out with a number of burgage plots in the main street or square. The town burghers would be the owners of the burgages).
