ORIGINAL UK DOCUMENT - 26 January 1824

Parchment : 1 sheet 61cm x 70cm with 2 wax seals, 2 signatures and revenue stamp. Two paper promissory notes are attached.

Summary of contents
William Thurston the elder late of Bellamies but now of Rosehill in the Parish of Dymock, Gloucester. Gentleman.
William Hemmings of The Vineyard, Parish of Ledbury, Herefordshire. Gentleman.
James Kilsby of Bromyard, Herefordshire. Gentleman.

The document begins by reciting an Indenture of 1816 in which William Hemmings mortgaged property in Bishops Froome, Herefordshire to William Thurston for 240.

Of this sum, William Hemmings is now paying off 40 directly and the balance of the mortgage is being assigned to James Kilsby.

The property consists of:

1. Messuage at Froomeshill, the Parish of Bishops Froome, bounded on the North by a road from Hereford to Worcester.
2. Messuage called Summers with 1 acre of land in Bishops Froome.
3. Messuage with 9 acres of land in the Common Fields of the Parish of Castle Froome.

The two promissory noets are both dated 1824 and 1826 and both signed by William Hemmings.


The original parchment document relating to the above is displayed on PHOTO. Use surname search on FamilyChest website to locate.

Full transcription/explanation available upon request, or you can buy the original document if you belong to the family.
