|Summary of contents:|
Jane WOODCOCK of Boston, Lincolnshire. Spinster.
John Boyes BLAKEY of Argyle Square, Kings Cross, Middlesex. Hotel Keeper. AND Mary his wife (formerly Mary GOODWIN)
Robert Cooper RAWLING of Boston, Lincolnshire. Auctioneer.
John and Mary Blakey are selling property in Boston to Robert Rawling for £280. Of this sum, £100, will be paid direct to Jane Woodcock who holds a mortgage on the property. It consists of a messuage and outbuildings at 44 Pen Street and is immediately on the North side of property already occupied by Robert Rawling.
The document begins by summarising an Indenture of Settlement of 1869. This appears to indicate that the property was originally owned by Mary Goodwin and as placed in the hands of trustees for her benefit as a marriage settlement.
