Subject (1824 indenture)
The indenture concerns 2 pieces of ground in Kensington, Middlesex, bounded on the North by a new street proposed to be called Camden Street, but now called Bedford Place (there is a small plan in the margin of the document).
It appears that William Bromley has leased the property to William Charles and Caleb Hall, and these later covenant to build a number of houses at a marketable value of not less than £500. This they will do before 25/09/1825.
This tells us that William Hall died in 1829 appointing James Hutchins as sole executor of his will. We are also told that, since 1824, William Hall and the others have built on certain parts of the plots, and in 1826, they mortgaged it for £969.
Charles and Caleb Hall are now selling an uncovered part of the original plot (190ft x 12ft) to Daniel Carter and Robert Charsley for £225.
