Summary of contents:
William Pike BAYS of Wisbech, St Peters, Cambridgeshire - Gentleman.
Alfred HILL of Walpole St Peters, Norfolk - Post Office Manager.

We are told of an Indenture of mortgage of 1846 by which HENRY HALL BUCK borrowed 20 from WILLIAM BAYS on the security of property in Walpole St Peter. He borrowed two further sums of 20 each in 1850 and in 1873.

None of these sums has been repaid and William Bays is now selling the property to ALFRED HILL for 90. It consists of a cottage near the church in Walpole St Peter.

There is a note to say that Alfred Hill has has married after 1834 and that "his widow shall not be entitled to dower out of the said hereditaments". This relates to a change in the law in 1833 regarding rights to dower.
