We are told that in 1774 the two Edward Pooleys mortgaged property in Cratfield, Suffolk, to Henry Negus for £100. This mortgage was not repaid, and a total of £166 is now owing to Henry Negus. This document formalises the state of affairs in a new mortgage; on this occasion it involves only Edward Pooley the younger.
The property consists of a messuage and farm in Cratfield.
