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.
