Dated July 3, 1691, manuscript indenture tripartite on parchment, two skins, 27 x 22 inches each, sealed together with vellum tabs and wax seals. Samson Beale is acquiring property in Clifton, Bedford (Bedfordshire) from Mary Edwards, widow and executrix of ffrancis Edwards' estate. Much of it is regarding the amounts and timing of mortgage payments, and specifying who will receive payments if Mary dies - her four daughters are named in great detail. There would have been three copies of this "tripartite" contract, one each for the buyer, the seller, and the court; to thwart forgery each one was cut in a random manner at overlapping edges which had to match up to be judged legitimate. Docketed and folded many times for storage. In Fine condition.
