Summary of contents

SUBJECT
John Vincent is buying property at Sutton in the Parish of Broughton Astley from John Kirk for 191/5/-d. It consists of a three-quarter share in a messuage, close of 2 acres and one other cottage.

We are told that the property came into the hands of John Kirk in 1807 at which time Robert Carver appears to have acted as a trustee on his behalf. Thomas Hudson is now acting as a trustee for John Vincent and plays little real part.

This is the second part of a contract of sale by Lease and Release since we are told of a Lease for a Year having been made the previous day.
