Folded and creased at an early date A extraordinary 1619 English "DEMISE FOR 3000 YEARS" ~ written on parchment ~ being an Indenture (legal document) dated 3rd. May 1619 at Newfield, the County of York between Alan & Roger Carr, and Thomas Brayshaie in the County of York. * A Demise was the transfer of an estate by lease, esp. for a fixed period implying a covenant "for quiet enjoyment." The conveyance or transfer of an estate, either in fee for life or for years, most commonly the latter. A Demise is basically a "lease", or the right to exclusive occupation for a set period. * Clearly the participants of the present Indenture are ALAN CARR and his son ROGER CARR of Closehouse, Parrish of Giggleswick (Yorkshire). Roger's Last Will and Testatment of 1621 is recorded in the Borthwick Institute (University of York) Langcliffe Wills vol. 36 fol. 634. Alan's Last Will and Testament of 1626 appears in Borthwick vol. 39 fol. 129. The Last Will and Testament of Thomas Brayshaw, likewise of Gigglewisck, was dated 1606 and is recorded in Borthwick vol. 30 fol. 162. * The wavy curve along the top edge is the actual "Indenture" whereby a previously conjoined parchment skin was separated into two documents. Authenticity was determined by comparing the two Indentures together.
