The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1816 in which Anthony Flower of Cockfield, Durham, (since deceased) acquired some property in Cockfield. In 1853 he placed it in the hands of Jeremiah and George Dixon acting as trustees.
This Anthony Flower died in 1857 leaving the property to William Flower at Bishop Auckland and Anthony Flower (the son of William). William Flower died intestate in 1853 leaving his eldest son George Flower as his heir at law.
