In any case, these are much better. I'll see if I can make it through a few more lines

I am wondering if this is the famous Jan Wemp, the Master Builder, who built Fort Hunter at the mouth of the Schoharie River, west of Amsterdam near Albany New York? There is also an association of the family with the Wemp Dutch Barn in this area.

PS - Jan Wemp signs himself phonetically as 'Yan Wemp'. I also note that the document has not been signed by witnesses.
It has been, look at the pictures on page 2. There look to be two witnesses.

Ilzho,

Have not time to transcribe all of your indenture but I have read it and it was a deed of sale made between Jan Wemp and (Arent?) Broot, both of Schenectady (spelt Schonagtaday in this document) of the first part and a certain (Sunder?) Glen of the second part. The deed is dated 24 December 1733 and involves the sale for the sum of £17-10-0 (seventeen pounds ten shillings 'money of the colony') of 'a certain tract or parcell of woodland situate and lying south of Schenectady'. The boundaries of this tract of woodland are described as

'beginning at a certain large oak tree standing at the North East corner of land belonging to (Barrent?) (Vroemeere/Vroeman?) and on the West side of the wood belonging to (Constis?) (Hengerland?) and running from that oak South 40 degrees West for 37 roods by and along the woodland of (Constis?) (Hengerland?) to a certain road that leads into the wood that is called (Chosput?) road, and along said road South 76 degrees West for 50 roods, then North 30 degrees East for 73 roods to the woodlands of said (Barrent?) (Vroemeere/Vroeman?), then by and along his woods South 43 degrees East back to the oak tree where first begun'.

Pacific Victory, you are correct about the witness signatures - it is signed.

You are very nice to take time out of your days to do this.
I just need to find the time to really sit down and analyze and transcribe this document to see who's involved and what properties, etc....
I just think things like this are really cool.
