Thursday 14th February 1833 Saw the old & new tenants of Haydon Town Farm to settle the amount of Way-going crop etc., the former having wholly disregarded his covenants, and ploughed more land than he ought to have had in tillage, besides going out of his proper course of husbandry – but I told both what I required and would insist upon, and gave them to Monday next to settle the matter, and if not then done, I would rigidly enforce the covenants. Reported fully to the Board as to the measures I had adopted with the Clerks and Bailiffs, and requesting authority for the gratuities and Pensions: also reported on the several Candidates for the office of Bailiff upon the new Establishments. Conferred with the Inspector of Woods as to what timber it might be proper to offer for sale this Spring, and also as to the several Woods in which he would recommend Weedings. Proceeded in the evening to Newcastle.
