These commissioners " for the better preserving of the estate of Edward Butt " have appointed Hubert Edy as " assignee of the estate and effects of the said Edward Butt ".

However, at a meeting of creditors owed 10 or upwards, held at the Feathers Inn in Ledbury, Timothy Spencer was elected as assignee. The object of this Indenture is to transfer that function from Hubert Edy to Timothy Spencer.
