|Summary of contents:|
Rev Peter Rollins Gorringe of Marston, Dorset.
Henry Humphrey Gardner of West Tarring, Sussex. Gentleman.
It appears that in 1890 a William Gardner mortgaged a piece of land near Southwick Green to the Rev Peter Gorringe for £5000. Then in 1894 the land was transferred to Henry Gardner, but with the original mortgage still in place.
Henry Gardner is now repaying £1100 in order to release part of the plot of land from the mortgage. In a second indenture of 1896, added on the same piece of parchment, another part of the plot is being released for a further £1100.
A third indenture of 1897 has been added on the back. The sum owing to the Rev Gorringe is now down to £1948 and Henry Gardner is repaying another sum of £1148.
The original plot totalled 71 acres, and is situated on the North side of Southwick Green and immediately South of the Upper Road leading from Brighton to Shoreham.
