Frederick and Elizabeth Banks are borrowing 1000 from Richard Smith on security of property in or near Dawlish, Devon. the property is detailed in a schedule to the indenture which lists 21 closes of land totalling 67 acres together with a dwelling house, barn, cellar and cottage. It is all called 'Weston' or 'The Weston Estate'.
