This indenture, between David Arrey (?) of Aston in the Isle of Wight and Richard Godfrey of the same isle records the transfer of property.

A slightly spidery hand in fading ink renders the top half of this document slightly challenging, but the scribe is consistent in abbreviation and letterform.

An interesting look at the late sixteenth-century history of the Isle of Wight.
