The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1815 in which John SAWYER mortgaged property to James HATCH, John BUTLER and James LARGE for £260. It consists of 4 acres of marsh land in the Parish of Hope All Saints, Romney Marsh. We are told that the three mortgagees were at that time acting as the Executors of James DENNETT (deceased).
Since then both James HATCH and John BUTLER died in 1825.
As the surviving executor, James LARGE is now transferring the mortgage to Mary Ann DENNETT.
