You are bidding on a very old & interesting document entitled "This Indenture" and dated 24th June 1831. The Document contains lovely Old Hand written script of approx 5000 words together with a large hand drawn detailed area map and schedule, spread over 6 pages of old document paper. The six sheets are fixed together at the base with tiny hand tied bows. This Indenture will be of special interest to those living within the districts of Kidderminster, Stourbridge or Bewdley, Within the county of Worcester, As it outlines the Purchase, Release & conveyance of the Freehold part of the Kinfare Hill estate with a covenant to surrender the Copyhold part thereof. The Indenture was made between Thomas Comber Raybold of the village of Kinfare, in the county of Stafford and William Foster of Wordesley House, In the parish of Kingswinford, In the said county of Stafford. The contents of the indenture, detail the purchase of approximatly 200 acres of land in the village of Kinfare, Comprising of Farm land, Dwellinghouses and forestry, Some being Freehold (A property held free from duty, Except to the king) and some being Copyhold (A species of estate or right of holding land, according to the custom of a manor, by copy of the roll originally made by the steward of the lords court). The purchase price of 10,000 was agreed for the Land, which was exclusive of the timber and trees growing therein. Due to the exceptional quantity of land being purchased, It was necessary for a value to be placed upon the forestry. The timber and trees were valued at 870 and the vendor demanded the full sum of 10,870 of lawful money for the entire estate (An exceptional amount of money in its day). The full page schedule & map referred to and included within this indenture has been drawn to scale, The scale being in "chains" which is an old unit of measurement. The map indicates a detailed study of the lands and boundries of the individual parcels of land being purchased. The schedule, being part of the map, Details the "Modern" names of the individual parcels of land, 29 in total in black ink. Whilst the other half of the schedule lists the same 29 parcels of land, Giving the "Ancient" names of the fields in red ink. Also included are six Blue Revenue stamps and Worcester ink "crown stamps" dated between 8th September 1830 and 25th November 1830. Due to the vast amount of money involved in this purchase, There is a 75 Blue duty stamp on the first page, which is a considerable amount of duty to have paid, which may make the stamp of some rarity and therefore collectable. The other five pages carry duty stamps of the average value of 1. At the foot of the document, there is a red wax seal. This is a very interesting and unusual indenture, Concidering the scale of the purchase,(Possibly one of the largest purchases of 1830), And the details indicated in the schedule and map. A nice old original folded document, consisting of six pages. Measures 30" x 24" with clear handwriting and in good condition for its age, Some 172 years old.

The Document contains lovely Old Hand written script of approx 2,500 words together with a hand drawn detailed area map, spread over 2 pages of old document paper. The two sheets are fixed together at the base with tiny hand tied bows. This Indenture will be of special interest to those living within the districts of Kidderminster, Stourbridge or Bewdley, Within the county of Worcester, As it outlines the Purchase, Appointment & Release of several parcels of land in the parish of Kinfare, In the county of Stafford. The Indenture was made between John Hodgetts-hodgetts Foley Esq of Prestwood in the county of Stafford, Who was Lord of the Manor in Kinfare and the second son of the Right Honourable Thomas, then late Lord Foley, Baron of Kidderminster, And James Foster of Stourton castle, In the parish of Kinfare, In the said county of Stafford, Who was a batchelor.

The sum of 288, 15 shillings of lawful money of Great Britain was demanded by the vendor, Being the concideration money for the full purchase of the indicated land. The hand drawn map referred to and included within this indenture has been drawn to a scale of two Chains to one inch, This being an old unit of measurement. The map indicates a detailed study of the lands and boundries of the individual parcels of land being purchased. Also included are two Blue Revenue stamps and Worcester ink "crown stamps" dated between 25th September 1839 and 14th October 1839. At the foot of the document, there are two red wax seals. One of the seals, Located next to the signature of James Foster, Contains the impression of a "Coat of Arms", Which suggests his title was of some significance. Within the indenture, there is also reference to previous indentures, listed seperately for the years 1790, 1802 & 1822. This is a very interesting and unusual indenture, Given the unknown coat of arms and referances to the Right Honourable Thomas, Baron of Kidderminster and mention of "His Majesty's Royal licence and authority being applied.
