|Very good paper document for this age|
|Paper : 6 sheets plus cover sheet 41cm x 35cm|
|Summary of contents:|
Henry COOPER of Water Stratford, Buckinghamshire. Farmer.
Benjamin DODGE of Steeple Claydon, Buckinghamshire. Yeoman.
William John WARD of Mursley, Buckinghamshire. Blacksmith.
John COOPER (deceased) of Padbury, Buckinghamshire. Yeoman.
The document begins by reciting the Will of John COOPER who died in 1860 having appointed Henry COOPER (his son) and Benjamin DODGE as executors and trustees of his Will.
In his Will he left property to his daughter Edith WARD and her husband George WARD during their lives, and afterwards to his trustees to be sold. Edith and George WARD both died in 1869, and the trustees are now selling a Blacksmith's Shop in Mursely, Buckinghamshire, to William John WARD for £200.
This document is only a draft and there can be no certainty that the sale actually took place. However, all the details such as precise date and amount of stamp duty have been filled in, suggesting that it was completed.
