Summary of contents:
Edward Henry HODSON of Farquhar Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham (Manufacturer)
Clara Caroline BENNETT the wife of William Bennett of St Nicholas Street, Worcester. (Builder)

The document relates to 3 pieces of land totalling 427 square yards with 3 dwelling houses in Severn Terrace, Worcester, part of a larger piece of land known as Jews Patch.

We are told that William Bennett acquired this property in June 1899 and mortgaged it to Edward Hodson for 675 in October of the same year. William Bennett has since defaulted on the mortgage with the full amount still outstanding. Edward Hodson is now exercising his right to sell the property to Clara Bennett for the 675.

Memoranda added on the back mention the sale of 2 of these houses (numbers 13 and 15 Croft Villas) in 1947 and 1951.
