The document begins by reciting that in 1851 William Brown mortgaged property at Dawley Green, Shropshire to "a certain Building Society". The other 5 people named above are the trustees of that society.

William Brown now wishes to sell a piece of land of 40 ft x 70ft which is the southern part of the plot mortgaged. Accordingly, the trustees are reconveying that piece to him for the nominal sum of 10/-d. Evidently, the original mortgage remains outstanding.

The property originally mortgaged was a dwellinghouse in a plot of land of 1 rood, 8 perches.
