Summary of contents
Alfred JONES of Portslade, Sussex. Carpenter and Builder.
Henry Thomas HORSCROFT of Hove, Sussex. Builder.
Robert HISCOCK of Hove, Sussex. Builder.

Alfred Jones is selling property in Portslade by Sea, Sussex to Henry Horscroft and Robert Hiscock for 75. It consists of a plot of land 34ft x 29ft in total on which two houses known as nos. 8 and 9 East Street Place have recently been erected.

We are told that Alfred Jones mortgaged the property to William Britt for 270 in 1879 and that the mortgage is still outstanding, but (unusually?) William Britt is not a party to this contract.
