The document is entitled "Abstract of Title of Mr William James Wallis and his Mortgagees to a piece of land and two cottages in Ross Street, Mill Road, Cambridge".

It appears to consist of a first batch of five sheets covering events in 1893-1905, and then three more sheets covering September 1905, with a final sheet, (this one in typescript), bringing it up-to-date to 1907.

It begins by reciting that William Wallis, (the elder), died in 1881 leaving two cottages in Mill Road, Cambridge, to his daughter, Kate Ameila Wallis. Then, in 1903, William James Wallis, (a brother of Kate), bought the cottages from her for 200.

All subsequent events are mortgages undertaken, transferred, or repaid, by William James Wallis.
