To Mr Christ[ophe]r Johnson Attorney at Law           Newcas[tle] 26th Jan[ua]ry 1765

   In Durham

Sir         As you have found the surrender of the six acres part of the copyhold Estate at Woodcroft I am in great hopes you will be able upon a more particular search to find a surrender of the same date of the other parcel called Bitchlaw and the close called Riding as I cannot conceive the people concerned at that time a day could possibly surrender one without the other especially as the writings of Woodcroft Estate mention the surrender of them all three and that the rent was 8s.8d. I shall be glad to hear from you again as soon as you can. I am etc HR
