James Ellis is mortgaging properties to Joseph Hewer for £2300. They consist of:
i. 6 acres of freehold meadow in the parish of Finchampstead, Berkshire, known as Ware Mead.
ii. Copyhold land in the manor of Crondall, parish of Yately, Hampshire, known as Moore Place, including a dwelling house, cottage and many parcels of land totalling 76 acres.
The second indenture of 1878 tells us that Joseph Hewer died in 1860 having appointed his wife Elizabeth, together with John Hewer and Henry Langton as his executors. In this Indenture James Ellis is repaying the mortgage to the executors and all the property is being reconveyed to him apart from a small portion of the copyhold land which was sold off separately in 1870.
