Summary of contents
Charles Colenutt of Pound, Parish of Kewchurch, Isle of Wight. Wine Merchant.
Robert William Bloxam of Ryde, Isle of Wight. Surgeon.

The Indenture concerns a plot of land in Pound, Parish of Kewchurch, Isle of Wight, in the East of the highway from Ryde to Upton. It contains 1 acre, 1 rood and 37 perches.

The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1856 in which Charles Colenutt obtains a lease for 1000 years on a larger plot of land (totalling 7 acres) which includes the above, at a rent of 40 per annum.

Then, in 1858, the smaller (1 acre) part was leased to William Henry Hamilton, and 1862 William Hamilton assigned the lease to Margaret Wray for the residue of a term of 996 years.

Also in 1862, Charles Colenutt appears to have bought the reversion of the original 7 acre plot, now with a house built on it.

Charles Colenutt is now selling the reversion of the smaller 1 acre part to Robert Bloxham for 200, but it is still subject to the 996 year lease and in the occupation of Miss Wray.
