Posted by: Brenda Azzaro (ID *****6039) Date: October 09, 2006 at 04:52:18
  of 716

ORIGINAL UK DOCUMENT - 07 February 1871

Parchment : 2 sheets 59cm x 72cm with 5 wax seals, 4 signatures, revenue stamp and a small plan of the property.

Summary of contents
The Rev John LANDER of Donnington Rectory, Herefordshire.
Ryves William GRAVES of Gloucester, Gloucestershire. Surgeon.
Richard KING of Rodmarton, Gloucestershire. Yeoman.
James HEADING of Faringdon, Berkshire. Yeoman.
John DYKE of Faringdon, Berkshire. Auctioneer. (John DYKE appears to act only as a trustee and plays little real part).

The recitals at the beginning of this document look complex, but it seems that Richard KING owns property in the Manor of Marston Maysey, subject to a mortgage now held by John LANDER and Ryves GRAVES. James HEADING is now buying this property for 360, of which 350 will go direct to John LANDER and Ryves GRAVES to pay off the mortgage and 10 goes to Richard KING.

The property is a plot of arable land called Marshill totalling 7 acres in the Parish of Marston Maysey.


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.
