Fairless BARBER of Brighouse, Yorkshire. Gentleman.
James THOMPSON of Bishop Auckland, Durham. Timber Merchant.
Fairless Barber is selling property in Bishop Auckland to James Thompson for £2,071. It consists of
1) Two closes known as Town End Fields which lay to the West of the Durham and Bishop Auckland Railway.
2) Two closes called Hall Meadows containing about 9 acres.
We are told that the Town End Fields come from the Will of Edward Fairless who died in 1809. In respect of this part of the property, Fairless Barber is acting as agent for all the parties with interests as a result of that Will.
The Hall Meadows appear to be subject to a lease held by the Executrixes of Joseph Barber, for whom Fairless Barber is also acting as agent. In addition, Fairless Barber has bought the reversion of this property at the end of lease.
