The suggestion seems to be that James wasn't near enough to take advantage of property so he gets his cut in cash terms as a sort of dividend - although why he then gets the reversion of the stable I don't know unless Joseph thought reversion was an unlikely event anyway.
It's interesting to think about the economic aspects. It looks as if dairying was the mainstay or at least the cash crop. There's no textile or arable equipment nor any sheep but there's dairy equipment including a cheese press and cheese & butter are part of the stocks. He's very particular about ensuring Elizabeth has a couple of good cows. In fact when you look at the inventory he's left her two (or tow which would match the dialect pronunciation here & probably there) and that's all he had. Presumably William has been living at home & has his own stock. Joseph of Ludworth also seems to have been a livestock farmer although on a bigger scale & had sheep as well as cattle. (see Joseph Dearneley)
What this was leading me onto thinking is that if cheese production was a regular part of the farming activity here then it puts Samuel D. the cheese-monger near Wakefield in an interesting light. (see Samuel Dearnley) He would have had local if not family connections back to producers and could even be seen as their marketing arm. I'd also had similar thoughts about the early London Ds who seem to have started off in haberdashery. As this was also a weaving area a local or even family member setting up as a London haberdasher would have filled a similar role in relation to weaving.
We have the further mention of the mysterious Glossopdale tack & its expiry in the property left to John. The other mentions so far are in William D.'s 1728 Will. (see William Dearnely) From what's said it appears to be some sort of collective lease, of finite duration but whose end date is uncertain but imminent. This suggests to me that it was a lease on a term of lives, which would account for the date's uncertainty and that it was running out of lives which would account for its imminence.
Joseph's son John was originally living at Bettenhill farm & subsequently moved elsewhere. It's possible that we now see the reason for this move; if Bettenhill was one of the properties affected it might have been the expiry of the tack which prompted the move.
