Deeds are generally written without any puctuation or abbreviations. There is often alternative spelling of some words and using upper case letters which do not always mean the start of a new sentence. Neither are they divided into paragraphs but are continuous lines of writing This can make documents difficult to read or understand.

This post shows the Deed exactly as it was written with no attempt to break it down into paragraphs. Done in this way it shows exactly how the original document is written. As the documents are very large each line of writing in the document sometimes takes up two lines when it is transcribed in to the web site.

But for ease of understanding, I have also summarised the contents.
