Elizabethan 16th century vellum deed Indenture Cumberland 1595 417 years old

Handwritten vellum indenture measuring approximately 21 inches by 14 inches. The document is complete, written in English and the brown ink is clear.

I have found the handwriting very difficult to read so I can only give a brief indication of the contents. I have transcribed the first part below (complete with gaps and question marks when I cannot be certain what it says):

  • "Bye indenture made the third day of January (?) and in the eight and thirty year of the reigne of our Sovereigne Elizabeth by the grace of God Quene off England France (?) and Scotland betwyne John Boneson of ??? Barro (?) within the countie of Cumberland yeoman and John ...... the seconde son of Oswald begotten off Agnes ?? off ... Mill ..."

The remainder of the document could be read, given enough time but a quick glance suggests it deals with the transfer of property and land. one part mentions "our sovereigne ladie the Quene's ..... moneys ?" Another section mentions the village of Watermillock. The bottom of the document is signed with a crescent shape (presumably the mark of one of the parties to the agreement). The original seal remains in very good condition. Signatures etc of witnesses to reverse.

Condition. Complete and in very good condition for a document of 400 years plus. The vellum is crumpled as shown in my images. The ink is in excellent condition. even along the original fold lines. I am certain someone with enough time and experience would be able to decipher the entire document. One very small fault to left margin: otherwise undamaged. No later additions or amendments. Guaranteed genuine.

Will be packed in a suitable box.
