The indenture concerns a piece of land totalling 2900 square yards on the East side of the Sea View Road, Liscard, Cheshire. It is to be divided into 7 parts for the various members of the family.
The document begins by reciting the will of Thomas Mullineux of Liscard, Yeoman (dated 1847) which left this property to his son James Mullineux and son-in-law, Joseph Kitchin, in trust for the use of his son John Mullineux. John Mullineux died in 1876 leaving 8 children (6 sons named as parties to this deed, and 2 daughters, Mary Jane and Eliza Ann). Eliza Ann married Charles Harris and died in 1877 with no surviving children, with her share of the estate passing to Thomas James Mullineux.
After the partition, it appears that the whole property is sold (?) or leased (?) to Frederick North.
