SUBJECT
In the main indenture, William Christie is mortgaging property in Walsall to James Trees for 1400. It consists of 4 houses and other shops on a plot of 980 square yards on the North West side of Station Street.

The second indenture tells us that James Trees died in 1896 having appointed his brother, Enoch Trees, together with Samuel, Elizabeth and Christopher Trees, as his executors. Enoch died in 1898. This second indenture records that the mortgage has been repaid and reconveys the property to William Christie.
