George the Second, by the grace of God
of Great Britain, France, and Ireland king, defender of the faith, and
so forth, to the sheriff of Norfolk, greeting. Command
Barker, Esquire, and Cecilia, his wife, and John Barker, Esquire, that
justly and without delay they perform to David Edwards, Esquire, the
made between them of two messuages, two gardens, three hundred acres of
land, one hundred acres of meadow, two hundred acres of pasture, and
acres of wood, with the appurtenances, in Dale; and unless they shall
do, and if the said David shall give you security of prosecuting his
then summon by good summoners the said Abraham, Cecilia, and John, that
they appear before our justices, at Westminster, from the day of Saint
Michael in one month, to show wherefore they have not done it: and have
you there the summoners, and this writ. Witness ourself at
the ninth day of October, in the twenty-first year of our reign.
