Entries in the Alteration of Tenants for Thorney:

  1. "Farm House and Land in North Fen 152a 2r 1p at £100 late Danl Lehair from Lady Day 1793 continued by him at £130"
    The contract relating to this reads:-
    Daniel Lehair Farm and premises now in his occupation from Lady Day 1793 at £130.
    This is exactly the same size as the farm in French Drove rented by his father, so is presumably the same land.
  2. "Farm House and Land in North Fen 152a 2r 1p late Danl Lehaire at £130 from Lady Day 1800 continued by him at £160 "
