Summary of contents:
Mary Sophia BOWES of Campfield, Devizes, County of Wilts, (wife of John Ireland BOWES of the same place, Surgeon).
Sydney Charles Jackson BENNETT of 8 Western Road, Bexhill, County of Sussex. Builder and Decorator.

Mary Bowes is selling a terraced house at No.17 Cambridge Road, Bexhill, Sussex to Sydney Bennett for 350.

The document tells us that a mortgage for 500 on the property was transferred to Mary Bowes in 1900. From there it appears that the property owner defaulted on the mortgage and Mary Bowes took possession of it in 1901.
