Summary of contents
Theodore Price of Harborne, Staffordshire. Esquire.
Isaac Newey of Birmingham, Warwickshire. Architect.

Isaac Newey obtains a lease for 99 years on a property in Harborne, Staffordshire from Theodore Price at a rent of 34/10/0d. per annum.

The property is on the South West side of a new road leading from Harborne Church to Smethwick and contains 1214 square yards.

Isaac Newey undertakes to build a new and substantial dwelling house within 2 years and will spend at least 400 on it.

I have 2 copies of this document. FamilyChest reference number 0505117 is the original lease signed by Theodore Price, FamilyChest document reference 0505121 is the counterpart lease signed by Isaac Newey. This latter version is somewhat grubbier and/or discoloured with age but both are otherwise identical.
