Publishing Note: Accompanying slip of information reads: "LEASE for a year of property in Above Barr, Southampton. James Taylor, citizen and joiner of London, Phillippa Clarke, widow of Mansfield Street, and John Nicoll, Doctor in Divinity & Master of Westminster School, to Captain George Boyle of St. Martins, mariner. 14 1/2 X 20 1/2 ins. 25.June, 1744."

It appears that a lease template was purchased and then filled in with the details. The template seems to have featured: a design; "This Indenture"; information about the stationer: "[Loht by Tioles Stationer near Temple Barr"; a crest that reads: "[HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE]; three 6 pence stamps featuring same crest. The names of Taylor, Clarke, and Nicoll are written at the bottom of the lease and stamped with wax. The entire document seems to have been folded; markings on the verso include a sticker with a design and "G[z]R" and "186", a content summary, and seal and delivery information.
