This list of tenants was probably made by, or for, Edward Leedes and ends with this sales pitch!
"These tennants pays all Taxes viz. Land Tax Window Money and Poor Sess etc. and I pay a small Modus in Lieu of Tythe so the Estate is like a Rent Charge and is Capable of being improved when the Leases Expire L40 p ann. All the Houses are in very good Repair and the Tennants pays their Rent to a Day and the Estate Lies Alltogether in the Heart of a Trading Country One mile from Bradford and two from Hallifax and Six from Leeds and within half a Mile of good Coal and a Quarter of a Mile of good Wood and Stone.
What I mean by the Tennts. Paying their Rents to a Day is they pay Whitsuntide Rent at Batholomews Day and Martinmas Rent at Candlemas Day.
I pay a Small Modus of twenty Shillings and three pence half Penny p ann. In Lieu of all manner of Tythe so whoever Buyes this Estate of me shall pay me half a Guinea p Ann. In Lieu of all Manner of Tythes.
Note there is also a Good Common where the Tennts. turn their Goods that is of great advantage to them."
The original document sometimes gives two names for the tenant e.g. Abrm now John Barraclough. We think the first name is probably the person who took out the lease and the second, the person who now holds it. The number of years the lease has to run is in the column "Unexpired lease"
The original has the reference BEA C3/B60/8
