Then in 1797 the mortgage was transferred to Joseph West and the loan increased to £250. In the present Indenture the mortgage is again being transferred to John Downes.
The property consists of (1) a cottage called Hanley Gate with 4 acres of lands in Bosbury.
A dwelling house (2) called Hanley Hill with several small parcels of land totalling about 3 acres.
These parcels are in Manshill Field or Suffield Common Field.
