The Indenture relates to Copyhold property in Accrington, Lancashire, in the Manor of Accrington New Hold.
It is a plot of 572 square yards on the South East side of Water Street, containing 5 dwellinghouses numbered 158, 160, 162, 164 and 166 Water Street.
George and George Edward Cunliffe have agreed to sell the property to Joseph Crawshaw for £746. Accordingly, this document contains a convenant under which they must surrender the property to the Lord of the Manor in order to complete the sale.
The two Cunliffes have also sold the adjoining houses to William Rawson and covenants between Rawson and Crawshaw are also included.
Three memoranda on the back record the sale of the houses at numbers 158, 160 and 162 Water Street at the various dates in 1923 and 1925.
