6. Debt, William Baddiley and Richard Bouker, 22 January 1639

This indenture appears to have conflicting dates. The preamble dates it as the 15th year of Charles I reign which begins either March 25 1640 (New Year) or March 27th, 1640 (anniversary of Charles I’s coronation). Considering the Old Style of dating this indenture would place the date of the indenture 22nd of January 1640. However, just after the preamble the year 1639 is written. I have a feeling that the bit of Latin preceding it “Annoqe Ind” (likely abbreviated) explains the conflict as “annus” is Latin for year. (Or maybe I have no idea what I am talking about.)
