William Edward PEEL of Bilby Retford, Nottinghamshire. Farmer.
Mary Elizabeth PEEL of Bilby Retford, Nottinghamshire. Widow.
Mary Elizabeth EMMOTT of Whitehill Farm, Parish of Keighley, Yorkshire. Wife of Peter EMMOTT, Farmer.
The document begins by telling us that Samuel Peel of Bilby Retford, Farmer, died intestate in May 1902. Accordingly, his son, William Edward Peel, is his heir at law, but his wife is entitled to dower in any property. However, Samuel Peel expressed the wish on his deathbed that the property (below) should go to his daughter, Mary Elizabeth Emmott.
In this document William and Mary Peel are conveying the property to Mary Emmott. It consists of two farms, both near Keighley, Yorkshire - one called Broadhead, with land totalling 46 days work, and the other called Lower White Hill, with 10 acres. Both are described as already being in the occupation of Peter Emmott.
