I have attached to this post a line from the will of my 8th Great Grandfather Phillip Clark of Thurcaston in Leicestershire in which he bequeaths land and property to his sons. There are two words I cannot distinguish and would like to know if anyone knows what they are. The text is as follows with the missing words as asterisks.
"payment of a ********** of all ******************* farm rents and other payments"
Please see the attachment for the original text.
Many thanks, Paul

Is the first missing word moiety? i.e. half.

Thank you, that would make sense he was sharing it between two of his sons.
One more to go.

...payment of a moiety of all Chief or ? farm rents...
I can't make out the word before 'farm.'

Thanks, the clue was chief which led me to the rest so the full line is:=
"payment of a moiety of all chief or fee farm rents and other payments"
Thanks for your help, Paul
