Summary of contents:
Edward YOUNGE of Shipdham, Norfolk, but now of Watton, Norfolk - Mercer and Grocer.
Thomas WIGG of High Holborn, Middlesex, but now of Shipdham, Norfolk - Grocer and Tea Dealer.

The document concerns property in Shipdham, Norfolk, which consists of a messuage and field adjoining, totalling 5 acres. To the North it is bounded by the highway from Bradenham to Norwich and on the East by the churchyard.

We are told that in a Indenture of 1810, the property was vested in Edward Younge for a term of 500 years as security for a mortgage of 1,500 made by Thomas Wigg.

In the present document of 1811, Thomas Wigg, has repaid the mortgage, and the term of 500 years is being reconveyed to him. That term will now be merged with the freehold of the property which he already owns.
