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

PARTIES
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.
