Original George II Indenture, 1739


Original George II Indenture, 1739.

A very nice example of an original indenture contract from 1739 in the reign of George II.

Complete with wax seals on vellum, and 'indented' cut along the top, which would be where the document was separated for both parties to retain their copy of the contract, and later be able to match it exactly with the other.

English - concerns the Hooke family in the county of York, and a military man of the Hooke family residing in Minorca authorising his family to act on his behalf in England.

Approximate dimensions: 

56cm high x 67cm wide.
