SUBJECT
Henry Barrett is lending 300 to Robert Beckley and Edward Hewett on a mortgage on property in Dartford. It consists of a plot of land 150ft x 150ft, formerly part of Fulwich Farm, in St Martins Road together with 4 buildings now in the course of erection.

The second Indenture of 1884 written on the back tells us that the mortgage has been increased to 1200 at some time. There are now a total of 12 houses on the plot, but 4 of them (Nos. 9, 10, 11 and 12 St Martins Terrace) were sold off in 1880. A new conveyance to the morgagee brings things up to date.

A series of receipts written on the back detail the successive advances making up the total of 1200.
