William Kirk of Cossington Mill, parish of Cossington, Leicestershire, Miller

SUBJECT
John Vincent obtains a lease for a year from the other two parties on property in Sutton, Broughton Astley. The property appears to consist of a 1/4 share in two cottages and 2 acres of land. 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.

NB. We are told that William Kirk is the eldest son and heir of John Kirk by his late wife Ann, formerly Ann Beale.
