And reciting an indenture dated the 29th of October then last and registered the (date left blank) in (Book, page and deed number left blank), being a deed of partition between the said Thomas Gerrard and John Rochfort of the said town and lands of Boherquill under which 118 acres of the same lands were allotted to the said Thomas Gerrard in severalty and the yearly rent of £684, 3s, and £1, 14s in receivers fees were approved in respect of the same allotment.

And reciting an intended marriage of the said Samuel Gerrard the son, party thereto, and Elizabeth Fowler, and showing the fortune to which the said Elizabeth Fowler was entitled consisting of the sum of £6,666, 17s in 3 percent consolidated bank annuities, and an expected portion of £833, 6s, 8p, being 1/6 part of the several sums of £3,000, £1,000 and £1,000 with benefit of survivorship on contingencies on her father and mother's marriage settlement, and a deed of appointment in exercise of a power therein contained and bearing date the day next before the day of the date of the release now memorialized, and a sum of £2,000 agreed to be secured as another portion for her benefit by the bond of her father the said Thomas Leversage Fowler, to be paid within 12 calendar months after his decease.
