Settlement between Muhammad Baqir's daughters and Aqa Muhammad, 1770

Aqa Muhammad, the son of ‘Aziz from Khvurasgan, claims that he inherits four-sixth of the house known as Talar in Khvurasgan, but Bibi Nisa’, Mihr Nisa’, and Baygum Khanum, the daughters of Aqa Muhammad Baqir, deny this. The dispute is resolved with the following settlement: Aqa Muhammad’s share is 2.5 out of 6 shares of the house, and the share of Muhammad Baqir’s daughter is 3.5 out of 6 shares. On the margin, Aqa Muhammad has acknowledged the receipt of his share and states that he has no claim over ‘Abd al-Ghaffar’s house, known as Bagh. On verso, on July 18, 1902, Baygum Khanum transfers her share to Aqa Fath‘ali from Khvurasgan, the son of Zayn al-‘Abidin, in exchange for eight tumans, and, on October 13, 1902, Aqa Muhammad and Mihr Nisa’ Khanum transfer their shares to him for twenty two tumans. In the same contract, Bibi Nisa’ Khanum has also transferred her share to Aqa Fath‘ali.
