SUBJECT
Thomas Shapcott has the residue of a 95 year lease (which commenced in 1865) on a house at 245 Summer Road, Peckham. He is mortgaging it to the Trustees of the Rotherhithe Building Society for 130.

The document has no revenue stamp (which might indicate that the contract was never completed). However, a signed note added on the back acknowledges that the mortgage was repaid in 1887, so there is no doubt that it all took place.
