Both on parchment, partly printed and partly handwritten. The 1777 indenture is 23 x 15 inches, good to very good with some wear, soil and small stains and is an agreement between Thomas Houston and John Poag for a yearly charge for Poag's cattle to graze on parts of Mt. Ballyboley owned by Houston. Signed by both at the bottom. The second indenture is for the yearly rental of farmland near Ballyboley owned by George Augustus Chichester, 2nd Marquess of Donegall and rented to a James Neill. It has the usual folds, is signed "Donegall" at the bottom and also has affixed to it a small surveyor's map, colored, of the property in question, measuring 5.5 x 6.5 inches. George Augustus Chichester was a gambling man, who married the underage daughter of the owner of the local gambling house, probably in part to settle some debts; he died heavily in debt in 1844 in Ormeau, County Down. Rare old farming agreements from Northern Ireland. Very Good. Item #H19202
