1788 court indenture, Gamligay, Cambridgeshire Cond. A+

A final accord concerning property in Guilden Morden and Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire. The parties involved are Thomas Masters and John Webb on the first part and James Bowtell & Ann his wife, Thomas Barford & Mary his wife and Joseph Edwin & Sarah his wife on the other part. As the confirmation of leasing the property between the two parties is being made at court, a fictitious case was created as courts could only officially deal with cases. Now the first party (i.e. Masters and Webb) become the plaintiffs as they are purchasing the property so thus they bring the case to court. The other party are the defendants (i.e. Bowtill, Barford and Edwin and their three wives) as they are the vendors, the ones selling the property. The document notes that the plaintiffs claim rights over the property. The defendants then agree to acknowledge these rights in return for compensation from the plaintiffs. The compensation could be seen as the rent but this being a fictitious case the amount was usually fictitious too. The document also records that the heirs of the parties also agree with the outcome of the case. The property is in Guilden Morden and Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire. No other details are given as only the briefest of details would be given at court as a fuller description would be made on an indenture outside of court with all the usually signatures and seals.

On one sheet of vellum measuring 1 foot 4 and 1/4 inches by 1 foot 1 and a 1/4 inches, the vellum is in exceptionally good condition. Indented along two sides with ornate markings in a few places. This document would have been one copy of three originally made. The indents and ornate markings could then be compared at a later date with one or both of the other copies to prove authenticity. No signatures or seals with this document as it was made at court and thus did not require them.

One of the indentures made out of court between these parties is listed separately.
