Thomas Sturmey is selling property in Kemberton, Shropshire, to Matthias Picken for £13. It consists of a messuage and garden known as the TEWTERING HOUSE on the South side of Hall Lane.
William Taylor is acting only as a trustee and plays little real part. The clause mentioning William Taylor is included specifically to prevent the wife of Matthias Picken obtaining a right to dower in this property.
