We are told that William Ward acquired this plot in 1857 and mortgaged it to Agnes Robb for 50 in 1859. He died in 1859 having appointed John Arnold, Ann Yeardley and his daughter, Julia Boswell Ward, as his executors.

John Arnold and Ann Yeardley have now sold the property by auction to Thomas Johnson for 210, of which, 50 is paid direct to Agnes Robb to clear the mortgage.
