Great House Indenture 1734

Great House Indenture 1734/5


This document is basically a mortgage. It refers to a mortgage the previous year for £1,000 secured on properties mainly in Llangattock Lingoed and then to a further £1,000 secured against  properties in Abergavenny, Grosmont, Llangybi, Llantilio Crossenny, Whitecastle and Skenfrith purchased by Edward Morgan the Elder or Charles Morgan. It is in fact a copy of the original, made in 1733, when it was then in the hands of Capel Hanbury. This suggests that the mortgage was never redeemed and that the various properties came into the possession of the Hanbury family. Only the first part of the document, dealing with properties in Llangattock Lingoed, is reproduced below.
