Amon Anscombe is mortgaging property in Lydd to the Folkestone, Hythe and Sandgate Building Society for 275. It consists of a messuage with bakehouse on the South East side of Wheelers Green.

A memorandum dated 1886 has been added on the back in which the Building Society acknowledges that the mortgage has now been repaid. This is singed by the Trustees of 1886 who are William Bateman, Edmund Kingsford and John Sherwood.

Note that there is no revenue stamp on this document, but the memorandum on the back clearly implies that the mortgage was actually completed.
