Details about the persons involved are given along with the amount of monies

indenture dated 1802 and to an Act of Parliament regarding enclosing open

in fact factitious as this was in fact the first of a two-part sale of the

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. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
