William Wenman is selling property in Stoke, Parish of Stone, Staffordshire, to Joseph Jenkinson and Roger Warner for £600. It consists of a one-fifth share in a Brassworks, dwellinghouse and two small parcels of land.
Various contracts relating to this property from 1815 onwards are recited. It appears that it belonged jointly to John Emery, Joseph Jenkinson and Roger Warner. John Emery died intestate in 1819 with his share passing to his brother Richard Emery. Then Richard Emery died in 1820 having appointed William Wenman as his executor.
James Richardson acts only as a trustee and plays little real part.
A separate oath is attached made by Philip Seckerson who was the attorney who prepared the conveyance. He is declaring that he made a mistake in the stamp duity paid and is now putting it right. (This is important because the contract is not legally valid without the correct stamp duty being paid).
