    Notes 
    • Will of Mark Whitaker 1682

      He is to have the reversion of the house after his mother's death.... He has the interest in the farm where he now dwells which I hold from James Oates of Ossett.

      Court Baron records indicate what actually happened:
      (Notes made by Peter David Whitaker and copied from him)

      1)The Court Baron, Wakefield 24 February 4 James II (1688)
      They (the jury) said that the persons named below refused to pay customary dues payable to the lords of the Manor, and their customary land was forfeit and should be seized?..the heirs of Mark Whiteaker.

      2)The Court Baron, Wakefield 6 April 4 James II (1688)
      It was attested by William Turner,gen, lords? tenant, that Thomas Whiteakers of Ossett, gen on 17 March 1685 surrendered into the lords hands the reversion, following the death of Mary Whiteakers of Streetside in Ossett, widow, mother of Thomas, of a messuage or residence at Streetside in Ossett and all ?outhouses, barns, structures, stables, folds, orchards, gardens, crofts, yards and easements appurtenant, now occupied by Mary or her assigns at an annual lords? rent of 5d: to the use of Joseph Richardson of Dunsfold, Surrey, clerk, his heirs and assigns for ever, on condition that if Thomas Whiteakers, his executors, administrators or assigns or any of them paid or caused to be paid to the said Joseph Richardson, his heirs, executors or administrator the sum of 26 15s on 29 September following without fraud or delay at the residence of William Turner at Wakefield, the surrender would become void.

      What Thomas is apparently doing is giving away the family home and lands unless he can find a large sum of money by 29 September. That land is also going to someone in Surrey! The answer to what this is about may lay in the name of the person taking over the land title ? Joseph RICHARDSON. Thomas? mother was Mary RICHARDSON so the land may have been kept in the family after all.
