Henry GEALL of South Bersted, Sussex. Brickmaker.
George Durrant AUSTIN of Bognor, Sussex. Solicitor. (Later of Petersfield, Hampshire, Solicitor).

Ebenezer and Henry Geall are mortgaging property in South Bersted, Sussex, to George Austen for 275. It consists of a plot of land of 30ft x 190ft fronting on a new road called Essex Road to the West. The plot is called "Town Cross" and two houses have recently been erected on it. We are told that Ebenezer and Henry Geall bought the property on the same day as this mortgage.

In the second Indenture of 28 May 1889, George Austen is lending a further 25 secured on the same property. This is to cover part of the cost of household furniture and effects sold by George Austen to Ebenezer Geall. At the time of this Indenture, George Austen is living in Petersfield, Hampshire.
