document 80000105

Copyhold of Earldom Emm Dennis 15.9.1806 on death and under will of her father Wm Townsend to one parcel of land called Dovehouse Field quitrent 10s and also to one parcel of land called Pond Croft quitrent 6s8d. In these two parcels is included what in the Commutation map is called Road Meadow No. 392 (392) . The fences have been may times removed and the course of the brook altered

I cannot tell the last fine attached to these portions of mrs Dennis property as she was admitted at the same time to several other parcels which have been sold to other parties, but I understand that Thos Holden pays a rent of £60 per annum for the house premises of Sonningwells and Tabors - Bearcroft No. 397 (397) - Crossfield included in No. 391 (391) (391a) - Pondfield - 392 (392) Road Meadow and 393 (393) Church Field (This rent may possibly include 5 acres in White Colne)
