Indenture dated 13th November 1733 between 

Edward Goldstone & Edward Pegg

This indenture was drawn up between Edward Goldstone of the City of London, son of Edward Goldstone of Goldstone (who was son of Lawrence Goldstone of Goldstone) and Edward Pegg. The two men were second cousins and brothers-in-law, Edward Pegg having married Edward Goldstone's sister Jane in 1718. Edward Goldstone's father, Edward, had sold the Manor & Lordship of Goldstone to Pegg in 1720, but the younger Edward had not been a signatory to that although his elder brother Francis Goldstone had been. It could be that the indenture of 1733 was drawn up to tie up what may have been loose ends from the 1720 sale, to avoid any residual claim that Edward Goldstone may have had on the estate. Alternatively, Edward may have still held land in Goldstone and this indenture meant that Pegg, who may have been managing Goldstone's estate, now took it into his possession.

Edward used a seal identical to the one his father had used on the 1720 manuscript that had sold Goldstone Manor & Lordship to Pegg. In the absence of a scan of the 1733 seal, the one shown below has been added for illustrative purposes and is a copy of a scan of the 1720 seal.
