Richard SENIOR of Barnsley, Yorkshire. Butcher.
The Rev. Obadiah LODGE of Keresforth Hill, Barnsley, Yorkshire.
Richard RICHARDSON of Barnsley, Yorkshire. Gentleman.
Richard Richardson is buying property in Barnsley from Richard Senior. It consists of a dwellinghouse and adjoining butchers shop, opposite a house known by the sign of 'The Ring of Bells'. We are told that Richard Senior acquired the property in 1791 but has since borrowed £561 from the Rev. Obadiah Lodge on the security of it.
Richard Richardson appears to be paying £150 for the property, which goes direct to Obadiah Lodge. The sale seems to be by Lease and Release since there is mention of a Lease for a Year made the previous day.
