The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1797 in which Philip Kitchen mortgaged property to frances Hardy for £200 and for a term of 500 years. Since then, Frances Hardy has married William Vessey, and Philip Kitchen died intestate in 1797 leaving Elizabeth Kitchen (now Elizabeth Harrison) as his only child an heiress.
William and Frances Vessey are now asking the Harrisons for repayment, and the latter have chosen to borrow £500 from Joseph Holland. Of this £200 will be used to repay the Vesseys. Accordingly, the term of 500 years is being assigned to Joseph Holland.
The property consists of 18 acres of land near Buttercup Hill in Wrangle, Lincolnshire.
Edward Hunnings appears to act only as a trustee and plays little real part.
