, Cover: Jeanne Tennant nee Angillis broken seal Page 1 According to the custom of Flanders relating to fiefs upon the death of persons possessed of one his feodal heir who is always the eldest of the line is to pay a fine to the lord of the manor and upon so doing he will be lawfully invested therewith - As this ceremony doth not appear to have been done the bailiff of the lord of the manor threathens to seize upon the tenth of the fief and it is very likely that if care is not taken he will get teh same condemned in the manor court - It is certain that Mrs Ann Angillis as feodal heiress of Mr James Angillis her father should have paid the fine to the lord of the manor and have taken up the fief and at her death not leaving any children, this fief devolved to her sister Mrs Jane Angillis who should likewise have complied with the custom, for one may say that nobody is at present invested therewith, and therefore it is absolutely necessary to act prudently and endeavour to accomodate matters withn the lord of the manor to avoid a suit and prevent confiscation - And if Mrs Jane Angillis jointly with her husband do declare upon oath that they are under an absolute necessity of selling the fief for their advantage and better support, and that such certificate (or affidavit) be duly passed before the magistrate of the place where they reside in as authentick[sic] a manner as possibly can be done in that case the fief may be sold but not without - the above is a translation of the meorandum with the draft of the letter of authority which Mr tennant his wife and Mr Tatham are to pass in realtion to the management and disposal of the inheritance left by Mr Jas Angillis by which memorandum Mr and Mrs Tennant will observe that - page 2 that in order to come to the sale of the estate an affidavit is required of them to the purport of the last paragraph and in consequence thereof the notary imployed [sic] by Mr Tatham in London hath drawn up the affidavit accordingly in the french language which is annexed to the letter of attorney in the execution whereof Mr Tennant will please to observe as follows - 1 To apply to a public notary at Lancaster and in the presence of him and two witnesses to execute the said letter of attorney he and his wife setting their names over against the two seals above that to which Mr Tatham has signed, but Mrs Tennant must sign to the first seal and write her name in french = Jeanne Tennant nee Angillis = and then the witnesses must set their names under the word Temoine and the notary will set his name where the case is made, and if he is accustomed to use a seal to his instrument he will affix the same before his name which will compleat what is to be done there upon the letter of attorney - And in regard to the affidavit Mr and Mrs Tennant must apply to the town clerk or mayor of the town of Lancaster before whom, after signing the said affidavit in the same manner as the power of attorney, they must make oath in the usual form and thereupon the town clerk or mayor will write a certificate of the following purport To all to whom there presents shall come John Stout Esquire - mayor of the Borough and town of Lancaster in the County of Lancaster and the kingdom of England do hereby make known and certifie[sic] that on teh day of the date hereof personally came and appeared before me Robert Tennant and page 3 and Jane Tennant born Angillis the persons named in the affidavit herebefore written and did then and there solemnly make oath and depose upon the Holy Evangelists of Almighty God, the contents of the said affidavit by them so signed to be true as God shall help them the said deponents + the xxx where the + begins and xxx to be brought in here In faith and testimony whereof I the said mayor have subscriobed these presents and caused the common seal of the Borough aforesaid to be hereunto affixed in Lancaster the nth dat of November 1763 And I do further certify that Jas Collinson[??} who has signed and subscribed the certificate at the foot of the annexed Instrument is a sworn public notary in the town of Lancaster and that full faith and credit is and ought to be given to all instruments by him so signed in that capacity both in judgment Court and thereout - John Stout (X) Which will compleat what is to be done there and then the whole is to be sent back to London in order to be forwarded to Flanders - Sworn at the Borough of Lancaster in the county of Lancaster this 8th day of Nov. in the year of our Lord 1763 - before me
