Memo Sir Walter Blackett, several years ago, purchased a moiety of an undivided pasture at Middlehope Shield, near Westgate in Weardale in the County of Durham of one Featherstone or some such name for £30. His motive for the purchase of it, was on account of the Lead contained in it; which has long been exhausted – That moiety of Pasture is held with Mr. Challoner, which, Mr. C is desirous of purchasing as the present undivided state subjects his Tenant to great inconvenience and has injured the other Grounds. Mr Challoner No. 239 Oxford Street
Date not given but a letter from Henry Richmond to Sir Walter Blackett of 28th February 1776 appears to refer to this potential property exchange so a date of 1st February is assigned here. The memo appears to be in Wm Alvey Darwin’s hand.
