Inman Waynforth of Fincham, Norfolk. Blacksmith.
Mary Waynforth, his wife.
Thomas Wright of Fincham, Norfolk. Blacksmith.
Imman and Mary Waynforth are selling property in Fincham to Thomas Wright for £100. The property adjoins the Common Street on the North side and The High Church Pit(?) on the East.
Imman Waynforth convenants that, at his own cost, he will acknowledge 'before the Court of Common Pleas at Westminster one or more fines Sur Conuzance de Droit come ceo with proclamation to be thereupon had'.
We are told that the sale is for £100 'and also for divers other good and valuable courses and considerations they the said Imman Waynforth and Mary his wife hereunto especially moving'.
This contract looks as though it is a sale by lease and release since there is reference to a lease for a year made the previous day.
