In 1771, this mortgage (having been reduced to £100), was transferred to Robert Carter who later died leaving his wife Mary Carter as executrix.
John Adams has also died leaving Joseph Adams as his eldest son and heir.
Richard Adams is now buying the property for £200 from Joseph Adams of which £100 goes direct to Mary Carter to redeem the mortgage.
The property consists of various parcels of land in the Open and Common fields of Thornborough. It is described as "containing by estimation one Half Yard Land be the same more or less". A "Yard Land" appears to be a term fairly local to this part of the country and is much the same as a Virgate (= about 30 acres).
