The indenture concerns a poultry and game business at No 7 Arabella Row, Pimlico, Middlesex carried on by two sisters, Mary Ann and Fanny Hubbings. Mary Hubbings has a 21 year lease on the property from 1865. The document begins by reciting an indenture of October 1866 in which Robert Underwood and George Jackson lend £499 to William Johnson and Mary Ann Hubbings (the latter is now married to William Johnson). Then in December 1866, there was a settlement on their intended marriage which assigned the residue of the lease and the business to James Stewart as trustee. We are told that the business has since been carried on by Fanny Hubbings.
The debt of October 1866 has now risen to £539 and William and Mary Johnson are unable to pay. This indenture assigns all income which might arise under the settlement of December 1866 to Robert Underwood and George Jackson until the debt is paid off.
