Summary of contents:
Sir Ambrose ELTON of Clevedon Court in the Parish of Clevedon, and County of Somerset. Baronet.
Vernon Leeming ROYLE of Russell House, Portishead, County of Somerset. Mill Manager.

This is a Grant of land and a dwelling house in the Parish of Clevedon, Somerset from Sir Ambrose Elton to Vernon Royle.. There is a perpetual rent charge of 3/5/-d per annum (but no sale price). We are told that Vernon Royle recently erected the dwelling house at his own cost, and it is on a piece of ground known as Upper Strode.

Sir Ambrose Elton appears to be acting as a trustee for a settlement made by Sir Arthur Hallam Elton in his will of 1876. The document includes a schedule of deeds relating to this property going back to 1776. All involve various members of the Elton family, starting with Sir Abraham Isaac Elton.
