Summary of contents:
The Rev. Peter Rollins Gorringe of Manston Rectory, Blandford, Dorset
Henry Humphrey Gardner of West Tarring, Sussex, Gentleman

It appears that in 1890 a William Gardner mortgaged a piece of land near Southwick Green to the Rev Peter Gorringe for 5000. Then in 1894 the land was transferred to Henry Gardner, but with the original mortgage still in place.

Various repayments were made in 1895 and in January 1897 so that the amount outstanding is now 1650. A further 850 is now being repaid and a portion of the mortgaged property reconveyed to Henry Gardner.

The original plot as mortgaged totalled 71 acres, and is situated on the North side of Southwick Green and immediately South of the Upper Road leading from Brighton to Shoreham.
