1546 George Blackett was granted a lease for 21 years at 33s 4d of West Shipley "on the occasion of his wife's wedding" (HPH p.31). According to Dr. Peter Franklin two parties have made an indenture of lease with Cuthbert Brackenbury and Ann his wife leasing the land to William Clarke. William Clarke may be the father or close relative of the bride, and the land may have been granted to him to form part of a marriage settlement made when she was to marry George Blackett. William Clarke's will and inventory dated Oct/Nov 1582 shows him as of West Shipley in the parish of Hamsterley.
