Mr Surtees Hamsterly								May 25th 33

After a long search I found the first payment for the Rent of Apperly Lane was made Dec[embe]r 1773 and it distinctly states it to be paid half year and due at  Martinmas <just> past             Mr Mulcaster therefore to <put> at May 1832 was quite correct. All the payments since have been for one year.
