Indenture, 1629


An indenture between Lady Elizabeth Griffin of Yardley and tenant William Hanum, which "endes at Mich(aelmas) 1630" as indicated by a note on the verso of the document. Likely the Lady's copy, as the outside indicates this document to be the "counterparte" of Hanum's. Attested by George Symons.

  • Writing is in a late Elizabethan secretary hand with a distinctly flowing, messy quality, likely the result of an overloaded pen.
  • Main text in black ink on one side with various notes written on verso.
  • A single sheet of paper, folded into eighths.
  • Lower right corner of the paper is cut and folded in, with a small, red wax seal pressed between this fold and the main sheet. Possibly the personal sealof William Hanum, as his signature appears partially over top of this feature (suggesting a sort of authentication procedure).
