Deed of a sale of a life estate by John Elys and his son John to John de Beeleye and his wife Margery, all of Toneworth, Warwickshire.

It is written in 25 long lines, in a notarial hand, and has a parchment tag at the bottom. Words have been erased in two places (in one case with a correction written in the space) and nearly 4 lines have been canceled by crossing out in ink.
