SUBJECT
The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1882 in which William Holdcroft borrowed 40 from Henry FROST on the security of property at Brown Edge, Norton in the Moors, Staffordshire. Then in 1890, the mortgage was transferred to the Norton Female Friendly Society, and at the same time William Holdcroft borrowed a further 20.

William Holdcroft died in 1909 with William Slack as his Executor. William Slack is now selling the property to George Redfern for 110, of which 60 is used to repay the mortgage (we are not told who are the Beneficiaries of the other 50).

The property consists of a dwelling house with garden and croft of land containing 2 roods and 25 perches at Brown Edge.
