Wording of old house documents

Postby Sara at The Family History Company » Sat Jun 01, 2019 3:32 pm

I am working on some 17th and 18th C documents concerning a house however I’m confused over the terminology, they appear to be leasing and releasing the house in an Indenture in several papers but all of a sudden it says Freehold, can anyone point me to a website or person that could explain the terms please

Maureen, I totally endorse Adrians sentiments!

It was if the article pointed to by the link, was written specifically to answer Sara’s original post :D

Well, hopefully my former Archives and Special Collections experience comes in handy. ;)
