Zachariah Cave of Grays Inn, Middlesex. Gentleman.
Posted by: Brenda Azzaro (ID *****6039) Date: November 01, 2006 at 05:05:30
  of 1277

ORIGINAL UK DOCUMENT - 18 November 1807

Parchment : 1 sheet 47cm x 5cm with wax seal and revenue stamp.

Summary of contents
John Knock of Fincham, Norfolk. Cordwainer.
Thomas Wright of Fincham, Norfolk. Blacksmith.
Zachariah Cave of Grays Inn, Middlesex. Gentleman.

John Knock is selling a plot of land in Fincham, Norfolk, to Thomas Wright for 10/10/-d. The plot is 11ft x 10ft and Thomas Wright has built a shoeing shed on it.

The legal details of this contract are a bit unclear. The phrase 'to uses' in the title is similar to the later 'in trust' and Zachariah Cave is evidently the trustee.

The end result is that the property clearly belongs to Thomas Wright, and he can pass it on in his will as he pleases. The sole restriction seems to be that 'the present or future wife of Thomas Wright may not be entitled to Dower out of the Estate'.


The original parchment document relating to the above is displayed on PHOTO. Use surname search on FamilyChest website to locate.

Full transcription/explanation available upon request, or you can buy the original document if you belong to the family.
