William Jewitt is selling property in the Parish of Blacktoft in the East Riding of Yorkshire to Robert Weddall for 660. It consists of several parcels of land totalling 27acres, the largest parcel being called Mary Hare Close.

We are told that this property came into the hands of William Jewitt (father of the current seller) in 1765. A schedule lists other indentures and court cases relating to the property between 1765 and 1830. The present William Jewitt had mortgaged this and other property to Walter Beilby for 2,500 in 1830, but Walter Beilby acknowledges that he still has sufficient security for the loan even after the sale of their portion.

There are complications such as that annual payments to the Poor and to the Vicarof Blacktoft and obligations for the repair of Staithes and landing places are chargeable on some of William Jewitt's property. He has to make covenants that these are not chargeable on the portion being sold.

Frederick Campbell and William Weddall are probably only acting as trustees and play little real part.
