An original early handwritten Vellum Indenture dated 11 May 1716. This document is a very old Deed selling the rights of Common of Pasture for one cow "or other beast of that kind" and Common of Pasture for two sheep "in all ye commonable and open fields of Welford", Northamptonshire for ".....ye consideration of the sume of thirteen pounds....". The document has a hand drawn decorative heading which just adds to its charm and says that it was made "....in ye second year of the Reigne of our Soveraigne Lord George by ye Grace of God over Great Brittaine France and Ireland .....". A great piece of social history as you rarely see documents for commoning rights on their own and it reflects a more normal life from the period rather than huge country estates and documents from this date are getting scarce now. Parties:

 

Jerome Write (also spelt Jerome Wright and signed as Jeremiah Wright), "tailour" of Welford, Northamptonshire

Walter Clever, baker of Guilsborough, Northamptonshire

 

Other Names Mentioned include: Robert Write (also spelt Robert Wright), Anne Palmer, Anne Walker, Francis Saunders, William Saunders

 

Signed by: Jeremiah Wright. Condition: The document is discoloured as you would expect for a document of this age and there are a couple of tiny holes, however, overall this is in quite good condition for such a very early document with revenue stamps and red seal. Size: 73 cm x 56 cm approx.
