  • Chantry Roll 38 Henry VIII (1546):

    "7s 8d for the rent of one house, with one little close, and also one acre of arable land lying in the field called Parke lands, in the tenure of Richard Batte."


    "3s 8d for the rent of one parlour adjacent to the tenement of William Page, with one close to the same adjacent, now in the tenure of Richard Batte."

    In 1547 he was Mayor of Devizes, and is recorded as such as having leased some land in the Old Port (parish of St Mary) on behalf of the Church of St Mary, to one John Felpes alias Symes, for thirty years at a rent of 8 shillings a year.

    He is again recorded as Mayor on a deed dated 15 March 5 Edward VI (1551) leasing to Robert Truslow a tenement known as "Brode gate" and an adjoining cottage called "The Cage" both in the New Port (parish of St John).

    He appears as a witness to leases of borough or chantry property from 1552 to 1562.
