Summary of contents:
The Rev Henry Tuffnell YOUNG of Mallards Court, Parish of Stokenchurch, Oxfordshire.
George VERNON of Chipping Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. (Estate Agent)

Henry Young is borrowing 1000 from George Vernon secured by a charge on property in Radnage, Buckinghamshire. The property consists of 28 acres of land with 3 tenements and 3 barns.

This is an unusual document in that it is a loan secured by a charge on property apparently similar to a modern mortgage. Whereas the typical mortgage of this period would convey the property to the lender, with a reconveyance when the mortgage had been repaid.
