Summary of contents
Mary Ellen WRIGHT of Hard Clough Farm, Parish of Thornrton in Craven, Yorkshire. Widow.
Peter ROBINSON of Foulridge, Lancashire. Builder.
John WISEMAN of 12 Derby Street, Colne, Lancashire. Joiner and Builder.
Roger WRIGHT of Hard Clough Farm, Parish of Thornton in Craven, Yorkshire.

We are told that Mary Wright is the widow of Roger Wright who died intestate on 12/12/1893, leaving a son Francis Heselton Wright (who is still an infant). At his death, Roger Wright, owned 12 freehold cottages in Chapel Street, Barnoldswick, Yorkshire (Numbers 15-37 - odd numbers only).

The death of Roger Wright was followed by a creditor's action in the Chancery Division which resulted in Peter Robinson and John Wiseman being appointed Trustees to sort everything out. Six of the cottages have since been sold by these Trustees.

Part of the Judge's ruling was that Mary Wright should buy the household furniture and farming stock at Hard Clough Farm for 132, but this money is borrowed from the Trustees on a mortgage secured on the remaining 6 cottages. This Indenture is to finalise that mortgage.
