The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1851 in which John Millington obtains an 800 year lease on property on the corner of Wilkinson Street and Porter Road, Sheffield. In 1852 the Rev Cartledge lent 700 to John Millington on security of this property. The 700 is still outstanding and is now being transferred to William Tinsley.

NB The houses built on the plot were later known (in 1938) as numbers 33 and 35 Wilkinson Street and number 1 Filey Street.
