The main Indenture is a settlement made prior to the marriage of James Kelly and Amy Hyde. James Kelly has taken out life insurance for £1000 with any benefits to be paid to John Louch and John Town as trustees in trust for Amy Hyde or any children of the marriage.
In the 1899 Indenture the original trustees are being replaced by William Fletcher and John Templeman. We are told that bonuses of £520 have been received from the life insurance company and are invested in mortgages.
