Summary of contents:
James TOMPSON of Liverpool, Lancashire. Merchants Clerk.
Spencer TOMPSON of Great Neston, Cheshire (deceased 1810).
William WALLEY of Chester, Cheshire. Maltster (deceased 1776).

This is an Abstract of the Title of James Tompson to a dwelling house in Kings Buildings, Chester. The document is not dated, but the most recent event listed occurred in 1830 and the paper is watermarked 1828, so it seems fair to date it 1830 or shortly afterwards.

The Abstract begins in 1776 with the Will of William Walley in which he named his brother Richard Walley as Executor and left property to 3 daughters, Ann, Elizabeth and Mary.

Ann Walley married Spencer Tompson who duly acquired some of the property in an Indenture of 1806. By 1830 Spencer Tompson had died (having written his Will in 1810) leaving his property to his 2 sons Henry and James.

The final event recorded is an Indenture of 1830. Henry Tompson (the eldest son) has inherited all the property (in the absence of a specific division in his father's Will) and is conveying some of it to his brother James. The property is in King Street, Parish of St Oswald, Chester.
