William Parrish of Theydon Bois, Essex, Labourer
William Hampton of Theydon, Bois, Essex, Farmer
William Parrish is selling copyhold property in Theydon Bois to William Hampton for £66. The property is a messuage known as the Tile House at Theydon Green.
William Hampton is now paying £20 in advance and is to pay the costs of surrender and conveyance. William Parrish has to pay the costs of a 'clear and perfect title' to the property.
NB. A note on the cover appears to say that no revenue stamp is required because the agreement will be executed within 21 days.
