The document begins by reciting that in 1890 Quentin McConnell mortgaged an annuity and some life assurance policies for £320 (but there appears to have been another mortgage already outstanding on these assets). In 1891 this mortgage came into the hands of William Smith.
By the time of this Indenture the sum outstanding has been reduced to £70. The mortgage is then being transferred to John Vallance and at the same time increased to £161.
In the second Indenture of 1895 the outstanding mortgage is being repaid in full by Quentin McConnell and the assets re-assigned to him
