Summary of contents:
James KING of Moss Mill, near Rochdale, Lancashire. Cotton Manufacturer.
Alfred DAWSON of Oxford Street, Rochdale, Lancashire. Stone Mason.

James King is giving a 999 year lease on property in Rochdale to Alfred Dawson at a rent of 11/5/-d per annum

The property is a plot of land of 732 square yards on the North side of Kings Road at or near Lower Place in the township of Castleton in the Parish of Rochdale. It is part of a larger area belonging to James Kingknown as the New Barn Estate.

Alfred Dawson undertakes to build one or more dwelling houses of stone or brick and slate within one year. Such buildings must be of the clear yearly value of 23.

Two memoranda added on the back appear to indicate that two houses on this plot were let in 1878. Each was on a plot of about 240 square yards, which suggests that there was also a third house.

A third memorandum of 1956 concerns a house at number 16 Newton Street, Rochdale, which is one of three houses.
