SUBJECT
The indenture concerns property at number 16 Undercliff, St Leonards, Parish of St Mary Magdalen, Sussex.

The document begins by reciting a lease for 90 years from 1828 given to Henry Hughes at a rent of 15 per annum. In 1832 and 1833 Henry Hughes borrowed a total of 620 from David Manser secured on this lease. The mortgage was then transferred to Thomas Crowhurst, John Fowle and Henry Paine in 1844. Henry Hughes has defaulted on the loan and these three are now selling the residue of the lease to Henry Beck.
