1795 English Legal Document (will) - 50 revenue stamp Probate Will of "William Crofs/Crofe (not sure which)" from Great Finborough, Suffolk. Dated 29th Sept 1795. There is another piece attached with a 50 stamp on and that is dated 1802 (I assume this is when the will was executed?). There is a wax seal that has a split in it, this mentions the Arch Deacon of Sudbury (Norwich). The sticker on the plastic wallet which holds this item says it is on vellum sheepskin but I have no way of knowing if this is true. (From the images the name is Cross).

You are bidding on a 'terrier' document from 1763, which lists all the acres and tenants of the Glebe lands (church lands) in the village of Hindercley in Suffolk, England. This document is ' A true Terrier of all the Glebe Lands Messuages Tenements portions of tythes and other Rights belonging to the Rectory and parish Church of Hindercley in the County of Suffolk...............according to the old Evidences and Knowledge of the ancient Inhabitants this Twenty Eighth day of June in the year of our Lord 1763'. This contains so much information, I don't know where to start. It mentions many pieces of land and who occupies it. It even mentions church items such as one pewter tankard and one carpet for the communion table etc. There are approximately 5 pages. There are tears and folds etc., but most of the text is legible. This document cannot leave England or Wales.
