The indenture relates to a mortgage which is secured on an 800 year lease of property on the corner of Wilkinson Street and Filey Street, Eccleshall, Bierlow, Sheffield. 750 was borrowed from a group of 8 investors in 1885, several of whom have since died. The 750 is still owing and the 4 survivors of the original group (Stephenson.....Jonathan Barber) are now being joined by 6 new investors. The mortgage is being transferred to all 10. The solicitor's letter(s) are to inform Charles Hobbis (a trustee currently holding the property lease) of the change.

NB The houses built on the plot were later known (by 1938) as Nos 33 and 35 Wilkinson Street and No 1 Filey Street.
