William Mills is buying property in Harting, Sussex from Robert Harting and Edward Plater for 400. It consists of a piece of meadow known as Upper Earlsfield containing 4 acres, together with a coppice of 2 roods.

The document begins by reciting a marriage settlement of 1868 in which James Vincent Harting settled property in trust in anticipation of the marriage of James Edmund Fotheringham Harting. Robert Harting and Edward Plater are now the trustees of that settlement. Alexine Harting is a party to the contract because she has to release her right to dower in the property.
