SUBJECT
The document relates to a messuage on the corner of Days Court on the East side of Gutter Lane, Cheapside, City of London. We are told that a 23 year lease on this property was granted in 1806 by the Worshipful Company of Sadlers.

The Lease later came into the hands of William Gell, but he was declared bankrupt in December 1812. His property has been assigned to Henry Cazenove, John Kincaird and William Hopes by the Commission of Bankruptcy. These three are now selling the residue of the lease to William Townsend for 450.
