The Leeds Provincial Building Society
Adah Grimshaw, the wife of Charles Vincent Grimshaw of Woodhall Road, Calverley, Yorkshire. Cloth Merchant.
Charles Higgins (of Calverley, Yorkshire - presumed).
The document begins by reciting an indenture of 1860 in which land in Woodhall Road, Calverley, was leased to Charles Higgins for 999 years at a rent of £3/8/-d per annum. Then, in 1865, Charles Higgins appears to have mortgaged the property to Samuel Gray for £140. In 1869 the mortgage was transferred to a Leeds Provincial Building Society, followed by further charges totalling £155 in 1869, another £93 in 1878.
It appears that Charles Higgins has since defaulted in the mortgage repayments and the Leeds Building Society is now selling the residue of the lease to Adah Grimshaw for £400.
The property contains 416 square yards, and in 1860 the lease was granted with power to build 2 messuages.
