|Summary of contents|
Henry Williams of Clodock, Hereford, Millwright.
James Parry of Clodock, Hereford, Mason.
John Andrews of Cwmyoy, Monmouthshire, Gardener.
John Andrews is buying property from Henry Williams which consists of a tenement together with the Water Grist Mill known as Cloddock Mill in the township of Longtown, parish of Clodock.
The document begins by reciting an indenture of 1818 between James Woodward, Simon Cocton, Henry Williams and David Watkins of Abergavenny, Monmouth, Yeoman, whereby David Watkins lends £300 to Henry Williams on security of this property. I'm not quite clear how James Parry comes into the contract, but I think that he is taking over the mortgage.
