      I am confident you have long since heard of Marke Erringtons death, and soe not a little wonder you should not give me a hint thereof, but you know what I formerly laid to your Chardge, pray now mind my business, for some tells me I am not very Right and that I should have taken possession before he dyed, about wch business write me your minde per first post.

      by my further order I tooke Councill about what you did last, and was told tis not Right, for you have made her ten[an]t In taile, and in Case of Survivorship, <though> I had twenty Children, she may break itt and give itt to whome she please, If I knew when you would lie at Durham, would meet you and discourse all things fully, otherwise must come over to you      I remaine    

Mark Errington apparently died in 1672: W.W.Tomlinson, Denton Hall and its associations, (1894), p.139
