The document begins by reciting an Indenture of April 1853 in which Thomas Barber mortgaged property in Poynings to James Ball for £100.
The mortgage is still owing but Thomas Barber has put the property up for public auction at the New Inn, Hurstpierpoint, where it was sold to Samuel Gumbrell for £270. This conveyance is to complete the sale, with £100 being paid direct to James Bull to discharge the mortgage.
The property consists of 4 freehold messuages in Poynings, Sussex.
Note that Charles Clark appears to act only as some sort of Trustee and plays very little real part.
