Summary of contents
Thomas WINTER of Everly, Wiltshire. Gentleman.
William MIALL the Younger of All Cannings, Wiltshire. Yeoman.

The document concerns a cottage and garden in All Cannings, Wiltshire, called The Green or Thorncroft. We are told that in 1757 this property was mortgaged to John Winter of Pewsey, Wiltshire, for 30 by George Perry.

John Winter died 'some years since' leaving a Will in which he appointed 'his kinsman' Thomas Winter as Executor. George Perry has since defaulted on the mortgage and Thomas Winter is now selling the property to William Miall for 23.

Note that there is mention in the preamble of a Simon Miall who erected the cottage on the plot, but it appears to have changed hands many times since.
