Frederick William Banks of Bridgewater, Somerset. Accountant.
Elizabeth Banks of Dawlish, Devon. Widow.
Richard Smith of Bridgewater, Somerset. Gentleman.
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'.
We are told that there is a complication of "a certain Suit of a Neck and Wood pending in the High Court of Chancery". Any payments which might result would be a charge on the property which would affect Richard Smith's security.
