Property - photo of document http://www.familychest.co.uk/FamilyChestDocs/documents/0602001.htmhttp://www.familychest.co.uk/FamilyChestDocs/documents/0602001.htm We are told that a 99-year lease was granted to Charles Aldin in March 1857 at a rent of £25 per annum. Charles Aldin immediately mortgaged it for £1000 and then later borrowed a further £1500 from the same lenders. In November 1857 he mortgaged it a second time to William Belli for £500.
William Belli is now buying the residue of the lease from Charles Aldin for a total of £4800. Of this sum he retains £500 to pay off the second mortgage, and a further £2500 is deducted since William Belli is taking over the first mortgage. The remaining £1800 is paid to Charles Aldin.
