      Nov 15, 1744 from Robert Hanson of CC, Gent, and Violetta, his wife, to Elizabeth Hanson and Mary Cunninghame, daughter[s] of the said Violetta Hanson.

At the time of his death, the afd William Hoskins owned a tract of land in CC called Friendship, by which means one third part of the afd tract of land (after the death of sd William Hoskins) became the property of Violetta as her right of dower. Now this deed witnesses that Robert Hanson and Violetta, his wife, for the natural love and affection which they have for the afd Elizabeth Hanson and Mary Cunninghame and for 5 shillings sterling and for other good causes, have given Elizabeth and Mary all the title and claim that they have to the third part of the afd tract of land.
