Summary of contents:
Robert JUDSON of Foubridge in the Chapelry of Colne, Lancashire. Shopkeeper.
John SPENCER of Foubridge, Colne, Lancashire. Shopkeeper.
John WILKINSON of Broach House, Colne, Lancashire. Yeoman.

The Indenture relates to a plot of land in Foubridge, Colne, Lancashire, containing 242 square years with 2 cottages built on it.

The document begins by telling us that in 1824 this plot was mortgaged by Robert Judson to John Spencer as security for a loan of 100. The money was repaid in 1831 'but no reconveyance hath yet been taken from the said John Spencer'.

Robert Judson is now borrowing 100 from John Wilkinson again with a mortgage on the same property. This is all done with the consent of John Spencer who is now acknowledging that the earlier loan was repaid.
