The parchment document is good for its age, just a little crumpled along the folds. The paper document is truly excellent for its age.
Parchment : 1 sheet 75cm x 44cm with wax seal, signature and duty stamp. Included with it is a second paper document of the same date - 20cm x 23cm with wax seal, signature and embossed stamp.
Summary of contents:
William YOUNGE of Shipdham, Norfolk. Mercer and Grocer.
Mary RISING of Mattishall, Norfolk. Widow.

The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1786 in which Robert Griggs of Shipdham morgaged a messuage and 5 acres of land to Mary Rising for 300. He has since sold the property to William Younge. The latter is taking on the mortgage of 300 and also borrowing a further 100 from Mary Rising. This indenture is to formally charge the total sum due on the property.

The paper document is a bond from William Younge to Mary Rising for the same amount, executed on the same day.
