Supplied by Dartmoor Press.

Concentrating on the principal types of leases of yesteryear, Understanding Three Life Leases…, the file of which comprises the equivalent of 77 A4 pages of text, also examines leases in reversion, marriage settlements, assignments of lease, mortgages, abstracts of title, quitclaims, letters of attorney, bonds, recoveries, final concords, and some other secondary types of property deeds. Copiously illustrated with working examples transcribed from original sources, the text guides researchers through the mysteries of these types of documents, and advises on the kinds of information which can be gleaned from them. And also, importantly, where precisely to find those details in an often unwieldy deed written on paper or parchment (in a hand which the inexperienced researcher will often have difficulty in reading). So that, with the aid of this guide - and with some practice - the enquirer in his or her local record office who is confronted with a large deed bundle will be able to spend just an hour or two extracting the information which they are seeking - rather than spending a week or so poring through the repetitive clauses of umpteen deeds trying to find those details!
