SUBJECT
This is the first part of a contract of sale by Lease and Release in which Edward and Elizabeth Latimer are selling a plot of land with a building on it in Headington, Oxfordshire, to all the other parties. We are told that the building is used as a place of worship so, presumably, all the purchasers are members of that church.

We are also told that Edward Latimer is "Lord of the Manor of Headington in the County of Oxford in the right of the said Elizabeth his wife". The plot is part of the customary lands of the manor.
