William Mason payment receipt 1735

Postby rhodrit » Tue Jul 30, 2013 1:25 pm

Here is an invoice/receipt I have for the work of William Mason dated 1735


Hope this is legible enough for all but I believe it reads:

"5 & 8/9 oz of my own silver at 6s per ounce" 1:14:6

"Duty of 7 & 1/2 oz : of our own Silver at 6d" 0:3:9

"Making 13 & 1/4 oz of Silver Plate at 6d oz" 0:6:9

"A Buckle for Mr Chasdon" 0:2:0

leaving a total of 2:7:0 on the 1st May 1735!

The next small section I struggle with and would appreciate help but I believe it is the name/names of the Payee and confirmation for

"two pounds seven shillings in full of this bill & all accounts to this day to Mr William Mason"

I'm not too good with old money but sounds like a lot to me : )

Hope u find as interesting as me,

Hi Rhodri,

What a wonderful find!

Presumably Sir Charles Musgrave Bart. (b.1688) and William Mason ( viewtopic.php?f=74&t=23452&p=56511).

Thanks for sharing this with us.
