Summary of contents:
William Welch of Warkworth, Northumberland, Publican
Henry Taylor Purvis of Alnwick, Northumberland, Merchant
Robert Wardle of Warkworth, Northumberland, Butcher

William Welch is selling property in Warkworth to Robert Wardle for 76. The money is actually paid to Henry Purvis who holds a mortgage on the property. It appears that this sum completely pays off the mortgage.

The property consists of a plot of land of 918 sq.yds. in Warkworth called "The Butts" previously appurtenant to "The White Swan" bounded on the North side by a road from Warksworth Bridge to Amble.

A schedule lists other indentures which relate to this property from 1804 onwards. It appears that it came into the hands of William Welch in 1861.
