Nicholas Brind South Marston 1635
(R12-128, Deans Court).
The document consists of what looks like an administration in Latin, which I can't read, followed by an inventory in English. The inventory demonstrates that this was a wealthy man.

(15) DOC9. Indenture from March 25, 1693, between William Herring (Hearing) of Highworth, Cordwainer, John Greene of Stratton St Margarett, Cordwainer, son of Ambrose Greene, maltster, (deceased) Henry Brind, Inn holder of Highworth, and Thomas Hippsly of Staunton, Highworth.
Ambrose Greene used to occupy the malthouse at Westrop, Highworth. In 1691 his son John Greene had contracted to lease the malthouse to William Herring for £64 10s over 500 years, with a peppercorn rent. There was a get out clause. Greene could pay Herring £1 18s 4d on the following June 24th and £65 18s 4d on December 22.
But the original £64 10s was not paid. Henry Brind steps into the picture paying £25 10s to Herring and £64 10s to Greene for a 500 year lease on the malthouse.
This must be the Henry Brind who made his will in 1722.
