There are two documents. The first is a lease of land at Stowe Heath in the Parish of Wolverhampton in the County of Staffordshire. The lease relates to coal and ironstone mines and is a lovely reminder of what the area was like pre-industrialisation. The second is a deed of partnership which lists all the properties owned by Arthur and John William Sparrow. The old field names are interesting. Near the Wolverhampton to Bilston Road there is Great Prisons,Little Gibbett Meadow, Far Gibbett Meadow and Middle Gibbett Meadow and from Bilston to Sedgley there is Hinckes Piece
