The document begins by reciting that Henry Symonds mortgaged property in Ledbury to Hannah Keating in 1841 for 700, of which 200 was repaid in 1843. Then, in 1844, the mortgage was transferred to John Mallow and a further 54/10/-d was repaid in 1860. Henry Symonds died in 1847 intestate leaving Elizabeth Mary Symonds as his only child and heiress.

Elizabeth Symonds is now selling the property to George Suter for 500 of which 4445/10/-d goes direct to John Mutlow to repay the mortgage.

The property consists of a Burgage in Ledbury of about 40ft x 17ft.
