The Indenture concerns property on the corner of Wilkinson Street and Porter Street, Sheffield. The first page and a bit of the document is devoted to reciting previous contracts as follows:
In 1851 John Millington obtained an 800 year lease on this property and then mortgaged it for £700 to Rev William Cartledge in 1852. William Cartledge transferred the mortgage to William Tinsley in 1861 who then died in 1867 having appointed Thomas Wiltshire as his executor, The £700 is still owing.
Meanwhile, the residue of the 800 year lease had passed to the two Messrs Beeley in 1861. These latter gave a 5 year lease on a house at No 9 Wilkinson Street to William Symonds in 1865. (NB there are 3 houses on the plot in total).
George Bower is now buying the residue of the lease from Messrs Beeley for £1000, of which £700 will pay off the debt to Thomas Wiltshire.
(NB the houses built on the plot were later known (by 1938) as Nos 33 and 35 Wilkinson Street and No 1 Filey Street).
