This is a handwritten document dated 6th July 1750. It is a one year lease for a property in the town of Carlisle, Cumberland. The property is being leased by an Isabel and Dorothy Milbourne of Carlisle to a Jonathan Drurey, a yeoman from Mealsyeat, Cumberland. The property is a shop and premises in the centre of Carlisle. English street and Botchergate are to the east, Blackfryers street is to the west and Benson Highmore (place or person?) is to the south. The one page (13"x19") document mentions a John Manson who previously owned the property. The lease is witnessed by two persons but I can't decipher signatures (please see photos). The Milbournes have each signed and red wax sealed. The 255 year old paper document has the odd bit of wear and tear but is generally in fine presentable condition along with Georgian duty stamps.

Original old Lease between "Edward G. Strong and others to Mr Thomas Teasdale. Lease of a messuage or tenement called the Flatt in the Parish of Calbeck in the County of Cumberland for Nine Years". Dated 9th May 1893. Written in copperplate handwriting on five sides of paper (each of 10.5 x 8 inches). This original lease or 'Indenture' is between; George Long of Portsmouth Gentleman, George Henry John Alexander Fraser, of 10 York Crecent Woolwich - a General in the Royal Artillery, Edward Gray Strong of Southsea Gentlemand ( the 'Lessors') and Thomas Teasdale of Todcrofts in the Parish of Caldbeck, Farmer (the 'Lessee') to lease ' the Flatt' 28 acres of arable meadow and pastureland within Caldbeck parish. The document goes on to explain the rewquirements of the Lease namely 42 pounds annual rent to be paid half yearly, as well as specific requirements as to the use of the land ('a fallow year after a grain crop' etc) and as such gives a fascinating insight into land use at the end of the 1900's. Beautifully written on paper in copperplate, the document is in excellent crisp condition with only some blackening to the outer covers and the top part of the front page. This is very minor however & all of the text can clearly be read.
