This is an acknowledgment of deeds by married women under the fines and recoveries act of 1833. At this time when a woman married, any property she owned automatically passed to her husband. If he wanted to sell such property, under common law his wife had to be part of the process, or to consent. This was seen to prevent the husband abusing his position as owner of property gained through marriage. The document was to show that the wife was of full age and understood the proceedings and agreed to the sale without being forced to. The need for such certificates was ended by the Married Womens Property Act of 1882. This gave them the same rights as single or widowed women.

This particular deed was agreed by Lucy Martha Hodgson wife of Samuel Prankerd Hodgson regarding property on or near Low Hill within the manor of West Derby in the County of Lancaster. This particular deed includes a red Royal Courts of Justice five shillings stamp. The Commissioners were Robert Henry Speed and Henry Wing and the affidavit was taken by Samuel Leonard Milne in the town of Nottingham in the County of the same name. Others mentioned were Margaret Bathsheba ?rigges, Anna Elizabeth Phillips, Jessie Lenox Phillips, Richard Sharp.
