The document begins by reciting various evens from 1803 onwards relating to property in the hands of Dame Elizabeth Smythe. She died in 1825 having appointed Israel Lewis as her executor and he is now selling her property in the hamlet of Shirehampton, Westbury upon Trym to Thomas Tovey for 1500.

James Leman and Robert Smart appear to act only as trustees and play little real part.
