1814 Vellum indenture, Whixley, York & Seals


Location: Newly built farm with buildings and land in Whixley, York.


Persons Involved: Alexander Pringle, William Duffin, Edward Dawall, the Reverend James Suttell Wood, John Abbay.


Contents: This indenture concerns the lease for a year of the property described above from Pringle, Duffin, Dawall and Wood to Abbay. Details about the persons involved are given along with the amount of monies exchanged. Extensive information is provided about the property including field names, their acreage, location and tenants. The document makes reference to an indenture dated 1802 and to an Act of Parliament regarding enclosing open fields at Whixley. The document closes with the rights and legal obligations of the persons involved along with the terms and conditions of the lease that are in fact factitious as this was in fact the first of a two-part sale of the property, please see last paragraph.


Document: On vellum it remains in excellent condition. Written in English the words are clear and legible throughout. On a single leaf it measures approximately 25 ½ inches by 19 inches. Indented along the top there is nice calligraphy at the start of the document. On the left is a blue duty stamp with a piece of silver attached and at the base there are five signatures with red wax seals. On the reverse there is a little more writing and several other signatures.


Interesting Fact: The Lease and Release was a two-part system used between 1535-1845 of conveying freehold property as well as other rights and covenants without the need to be made public. Henry VIII had made statue law to ensure that all freehold sales were made public so that the state would know who was in possession of freehold property at any one time. Leasehold however was exempt, thus those people wishing to keep the transaction private first created a Lease. The rent and length of the lease were usually nominal (normally five shillings and for a year) as this was simply a paper exercise. The following day a Release would be created with the information contained within it being factual as this was the actual sale.

All attempts have been made to ensure the above descriptions are accurate, if this is not the case returns will be accepted and a full refund given.


As documents vary in size and weight, postage and packaging charges listed are my estimates of what I think it will cost. If you believe you have been charged too much please get in contact with me as I can always issue a partial refund to you through paypal.


Postage and packing charges for single items are normally:

1st Class: £3.99

Special Delivery: £7.99

Airmail to Europe: £4.99

Airmail to the Rest of the World: £7.99

Airmail with track and trace plus insurance: £8.00 in addition to standard airmail costs


Discounts are given on multiple purchases. If you are buying multiple items I will send you an invoice with the correct p&p for the items you have bought.


Items are normally dispatched within one business day of receiving payment and you will receive a confirmation e-mail of this and the likely arrival time at your address.


The postal times stated are estimations but sometimes they may take longer. In the unfortunate event that your item(s) are lost in the post full refunds will be given after:

15 working days (i.e. 3 weeks) for U.K. destinations

20 working days (i.e. 4 weeks) for E.U. destinations other than the U.K.

25 working days (i.e. 5 weeks) for the rest of the world.

This is however a very rare occurrence so if items do take longer than estimated do be patient as they will likely arrive shortly.
