Summary of contents:

Thomas GREEVES (deceased) of Swaffam in the County of Norfolk - Currier
and Elizabeth GREEVES his wife of Swaffam in the County of Norfolk - Widow
William Good WINEARLS of Swaffam in the County of Norfolk - Gentleman


This indenture relates to a cottage with small yard or garden in East Bradenham, Norfolk, which had been owned by Thomas Greeves. In 1854 and 1855 he had mortgaged the property to a "certain Society established at the Star Inn, Norwich". Later, in 1856, he also borrowed 150 from William Winearls after erecting a new house on the property.

Thomas Greeves died in September 1856 leaving everything to his wife Elizabeth, but at this point, the Society required repayment of their loans which amounted to 29/13/9d. William Winearls paid this sum, adding it to his own mortgage. He required Elizabeth Greeves to execute this further indenture to ensure that this security for the full amount was in order.
