Date:22 November 1837
Bad. The document has been damaged by damp down the left-hand side, and part of the left-hand side margin has been cut away. No text has been cut off but the first one or two words on several lines are illegible. Otherwise okay.

Summary of contents
Edward Bernard Coleman of Church Stretton, Shropshire. Esquire.
James Thomas Woodhouse of Leominster, Herefordshire. Gentleman.
Richard Jenkins of Abbey Dore, Herefordshire. Farmer.

This document is a declaration by Edward Coleman. He tells us that he has agreed to grant a lease to Richard Jenkins on two messuages called Hollinwood and Hollingrange in Abbey Dore for the term of 14 years.

Then, since he is 'about to reside beyond the Seas' he appoints James Woodhouse as his attorney both to finalise the agreement with Richard Jenkins and also to dispose of his property in the Parish of Norton Canon, Herefordshire. Some of this property must be copyhold since he gives James Woodhouse power to surrender it to the lord of the manor of Norton Canon.
