Notes

1666/7

Technically, this deed is a bargain and sale with feoffment. Effectively it had the same force as a normal feoffment. The bargain and sale had been developed to transfer the use rather than possession (seisin) as a device for avoiding certain obligations. By the Statute of Enrolments of 1535 and the Statute of Uses of 1536, the purpose of the bargain and sale had been abrogated. The bargain and sale with feoffment developed thereafter. Note therefore the reference to enrolment.
