Sharia court decision in Cairo National Archives 18 dhul qi`dah 1150 AH

I am writing a history of the supervision of the wakfiyyah of Sultan Abu Said Qunsuh, reigned 1498//1500, from inception to the present day. This wakfiyyah was registered on 3rd raba al awwal 908AH.The only key judgement that I am missing is that of 1150AH, passing the supervision of the wakfiyyah to Sayyid Sherif Yusuf Bairam, elder son of Sayyid Sherif Saleh el Wafaii. I need help to find this judgement and will cooperate fully with any researcher or other person willing to join me.

Thank you, James Heyworth-Dunne, London England
