sketch plan

(written on sketch plan: this wood in times past was enpaled and the earls of Oxenforde in former times (for their pleasure) bred and maintained wild swine in the same until the reign of King Henry VIII about which time they were destroyed by Jn (then earl of Oxenford) for that he understood that the inhabitants thereabouts sustained by them very great loss and damage)
