The recitals at the beginning of this document look complex, but it seems that Richard KING owns property in the Manor of Marston Maysey, subject to a mortgage now held by John LANDER and Ryves GRAVES. James HEADING is now buying this property for £360, of which £350 will go direct to John LANDER and Ryves GRAVES to pay off the mortgage and £10 goes to Richard KING.
The property is a plot of arable land called Marshill totalling 7 acres in the Parish of Marston Maysey.
John DYKE appears to act only as a trustee and plays little real part.
