Matthew Shole obtains a lease from the other 3 parties on 3 acres of enclosed land at Burton on the Woulds, Prestwould, Leics, know and Barley Close or Puifold Close. This appears to be a standard Lease for a Year at a rent of a peppercorn, which implies that it is the first part of a contact of sale by Lease and Release.
