And also

Another tenement lately erected on part of the said premises in the occupation of John DENNIS (to all of which premises William GURDEN was admitted 6th July 1841)

To the use of the said James MORRELL his heirs and assigns … at the Will of the Lord according to the custom of the Manor… Upon Condition that if the said William GURDEN his heirs etc. should pay James MORRELL £337 with interest at the rate of £4 for every £100 by the year on the 1st July next without any deduction then this surrender is to be void.
