The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1822 in which Joseph Hill mortgaged property in Bromsberrow, Gloucestershire, to Thomas Webb (the father of the one listed above - now deceased - then of Berrow, Worcestershire). Joseph Hill has since borrowed a further £50 from the two Thomas Webbs, and the total now owing is £74/3/-d.
The mortgage is now being assigned to James Gregg, and at the same time increased to £80.
A note on the back dated 3 February 1835 is a receipt by James Gregg for £90 paid by Edward Lane of Redmarley Dabitot, Worcestershire, to clear the debt then owing. He is then re-assigning the mortgage to Edward Lane.
The separate slip of paper is an acknowledgment that Joseph Hill borrowed a further £2 from Edward Lane on 9 February 1835. This slip is signed by Joseph Hill, John Hill and William Hill.
The property mortgaged consists of a cottage with a garden, and half an acre on the West side of Caison Hill, surrounded on all sides by Malvern Chase.
