Our latest acquisition is an 18th century copy of an Indenture from the middle of the 16th century. It's a fascinating document and an important piece of information for the history of the Shrivenham Manor that was called Bucklands that disappeared from the written record in the last quarter of the 17th century.
There are two documents, one written in English and the other in Latin. The Latin seems to be a less detailed copy of the English.
