SUBJECT
The Indenture concerns a plot of ground in Bath, 21ft x 59ft, formerly part of the Abbey Orchard, together with a dwelling house erected on it by Samuel Emes (?) the Royal Mason.

Edmund Reynolds and James Bailie are selling this property to Francis Wheeler and William Maylor for 1200. We are told that William Mayler is acting a trustee for Francis Wheeler in this matter.

The sale is by Lease and Release, of which this Indenture is the second part. We are told of a Lease for a Year having been given the previous day.

A history is given of how the property came into the hands of Edmund Reynolds - but it involves a second mortgage and a bankruptcy, and looks quite complicated.
