Does this enclosure differ with regard to the Land owners from other enclosures? Will not their expenses be proportioned. Is the extent of their allotments as in similar cases? Additional churches must be built & ministries maintained from the improved state of the Land. As this charge would be for extensive for the rector - the ministries to be independent of him. If tithe or corn rent or any other payment be suggested. Will not the Land owners object & would it not be difficult & expensive to collect such payments for the Trustees to be appointed. Will an allotment of Land answer this and proposed without being subject to the objections made in common enclosures as it will be under the <discretion> of Trustees, the rector & curates receiving only a portion of the rents.
Undated notes on the proposed Weardale Enclosure. From the content, would appear to have be made by an agent of the Bishop of Durham. It appears to be in the handwriting of Thomas Bernard. Given same date here as Bernard’s letter to the Bishop of 28th Oct
