⭕ VERY RARE - July 6th, 1794 hand written two page King George III Georgian Indenture Document on Parchment (Vellum) regarding the Estate and Bankruptcy of a Jacob Thrale of Bristol, England for $500 pounds plus interest and other debts. As part of the Estate of Jacob Thrale. The 1st Baronet of Muncaster, Sir John Pennington seems to have filed a claim against the estate and property of Jacob Thrale.

Written in old English with reference to our Sovereign Lord George the Third who
reigned from 1760 to early 1800s. Excellent 2 page Indenture with 4 wax and 2 tax seals in pristine condition. Definitely a museum piece from the Bristol and Cumbria areas.

Signatorys on the Indenture are as follows:

-Paul Orchard
-Samuel Gormond
-John Pennington (Baron of Muncaster) www.muncaster.co.uk
-Thomas Danson
- Jeremiah Osborne (Solicitor Seals) www.osborneclarke.com
-Many other names are included within the body of the text.

Jeremiah Osborne was the solicitor and holder of the seal. The legal firm of Osborne Clarke was founded in Bristol, UK, in 1748 by Jeremiah Osborne. Now an international law firm called Osborne Clarke.

Document is presently located in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada as part of an estate and was acquired about 50 years ago in England.


Vellum was a fine sort of parchment prepared from the skins of very young or still-born animals. Of it the oldest manuscript books were made, adorned with illuminations and miniature paintings, which required a fine, smooth surface, and vellum was free from the flaws which frequently occur in the skins of mature animals, which were routinely used in the largest size indentures.
The use of signet-rings is very ancient. Many old Roman and Saxon signet-rings have been dug up from time to time in various parts of England. Small private seals bearing devices appear to have been attached to deeds of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Many of the large wax seals are very beautiful, but few in private collections of deeds exist in any state of perfection. The wax used for them was either its natural color or else a sealing wax of a very dark green, also black, or red.
