Thomas MORETON of Northwich, Cheshire. Surgeon.
William HEALD of Castle Northwich, Cheshire. Builder.
Thomas Moreton is selling property in Castle Northwich to William Heald for £350. It is a plot of 390 square yards and is bounded on the West 'by an intended street leading out of the Chester Road". There are four dwellinghouses built on it.
We are told that this property had first been mortgaged to Thomas Moreton in 1869 for £275 by John Mottershead, the latter then borrowed a further £75, and finally, in January 1873, sold the property to Thomas Moreton in settlement of his debts.
