10. Indenture, Goodwyn Family, John Bond, John Hulme, 10 July, 1647

Trytite is an archaic English word meaning to nip, pinch or gall. However, I am not entirely sure if it the word intended by the author, thus the brackets. The word has come up in different indentures also spelled as “Tritite” and may mean treaty.
