Tune unknown, no score available.
To all treue xcian people wch
this deed shall read or use
I Richard Ambler greetinge send
from harte unfainedly
Knowe ye yt I for five pence paid
to me in my distress
By Edmond Loyde of Wattlesburighe
a gentleman doubtlesse
Haue geven, granted, bargained
confirmed, lett, + soulde
Vnto ye foresaid Edward Loyde
a plott more worthe than goulde
A meadow grounde yt has below
cauled Elnors close cunnerigh
Which boundeth upon buttocks dale
adioyinnge to the thighe
In lengthe extendinge westwarde
+ northward enoughe
From Clifton to a pleasant plaine
alonge a goodly roughe
Vpon ye forrest side therof
two little hillocks are
Which for my pleasure manie times
I have uncovered bare
Within ye countie of c***ington
neare to Navill doune
In midst wher of ther springes a well
yt cost me manie a crowne
To have and houlde to him + his
whiles yt ye winde doth blowe
Whiles Sone doth shine + trees doe grow
her water runnes belowe
With all apptenances are
Intayle + not in fee
For ye reversion of ye haunch
I still reserve in me
Yeldinge + payinge quarterly
two nutmegs faire + rounde
Joyned wt a race of ginger
must waye at least a pounde
And if ye rest shall chance to be
by him unpayd behinde
Wherby my Nell for want of right
with him a faulte shall finde
Then by this deede I doe provide
yt it shall lawful be
For me to enter into her
+ straigne her secretly
And ye distresse wt him to keepe
until ye rent be payde
For yt which is both right + due
I will not have delayde
And I ye foresayde plott of grounde
which still I must command
Unto ye foresayde Edmond Loyde
against all men will defende
Some such yt have good right therto
by evidence fayre
Whose lawfull wise therunto
I mean not to impayre
Gainst me + mine I am content
In specyall warrantye
Warrantia Charta otherwise
against me shall not lye
I witness call to this my deede
Sr William Clearke devine
Whose stalion ofte hath fed wtin
yt meadowe plott of myne
He was a ready neighboure sure
+ headed well ye grounde
And used still to stopp ye gapp
when he it open founde
He hath a pasture of his owne
which is both faire + sounde
Yet he delights as manie doe
to grase his neighbours grounde
This deed is sealed + delivered
yet all not worth a figge
Untill there be possession had
by turfe upon his twigge
