The document begins by reciting that Thomas Wake died in January 1842 having appointed Henry Miller and John Wake as his executors. As a result, these two are now selling Copyhold property in the Manor of Dickleburgh Rectory to William Forrester for £290.
The property consists of several parcels of land totalling 9 acres which had come to Thomas Wake in 1781 on the death of his father Henry Wake. There is mention of other Freehold property of Thomas Wake, also in Dickleburgh, which is being sold to William Forrester on the same day for £200.
