Althea Louisa LOCK of Little Farrington, Oxfordshire. Spinster. c1902
Posted by: Brenda Azzaro (ID *****6039) Date: November 09, 2006 at 04:54:16
  of 804

Original UK document - 25 March 1902

Parchment : 1 sheet 55cm x 68cm with 5 wax seals, 4 signatures and revenue stamps.

Summary of contents
William BAKER of Shipton under Wychwood, Oxfordshire. Farmer.
Thomas Lock SIMPER of Little Farringdon, Oxfordshire. Miller.
Caroline Mary PRESTON the wife of William Cooper PRESTON of 23 Pier Road, Erith, Kent. Tailor.
Althea Louisa LOCK of Little Farrington, Oxfordshire. Spinster.
William PAINTIN of Bradwell, Oxfoprdshire. Farmer.

The Indenture relates to 5 cottages in the Parish of Kencot, Oxfordshire, which are being sold to William Paintin for 105. This had been the property of Thomas Lock who left it to his wife Louisa for her lifetime, but failed to appoint an Executor.

Thomas Lock died in 1888 and then Louise died but without ever having been granted Administration. Administration was then given in 1889 to Thomas Lock Simper, who was a son of Thomas Lock, but born before his marriage to Louisa. Thomas Lock also had 2 daughters, Althea Lock and Caroline Preston. We are also told that in 1869, Thoms Lock had mortgaged the property to William Baker for 200, which sum is still owing.

Accordingly, the sum of 105 is being paid to William Baker and the balance appears to be still owing.
