Henry Dewhurst is mortgaging property in Blackburn to Roger Haworth for 65.

The property is all at Salford in Blackburn and consists of:

1. A cottage acquired by Henry Dewhurst in 1881.

2. A quarter share of 3 other dwellinghouses which had belonged to James Dewhurst (deceased).

We are told that the property of James Dewhurst had been divided between his 4 nephews and nieces - James Dewhurst, Henry Dewhurst, Ann Dewhurst and Elizabeth, now the wife of Roger Haworth.

Thomas Astley appears to come into it only as a trustee involved in some previous transaction.
