Summary of the Above Indentures (by Pat Marsden)

23 November 1864 Indenture of Conveyance between Benjamin Page Grimsey of Ipswich and John Eade of Colchester, builder

Recitals

31 August 1859 Indenture between William Freak Westwood and Mary Maria Smith of the messuages, etc to be conveyed to her use.

31 August 1859 certain copyhold lands at Wivenhoe surrendered to John Smith.

Mary Maria Smith and John Smith the younger had been lent £500 by Benjamin Page Grimsey with the repayment and interest being secured by a) the freehold messuages above mentioned and b) by the copyhold lands surrendered to John Smith the younger.  This included the messuages or tenements, Malting office and hereditaments together with their appurtenances.  They had the opportunity to repay the money plus interest of 5% per year.  However if they became in default for one calendar month after notice had been served Benjamin Page Grimsey was empowered to sell these premises and hereditaments either together or in lots or parcels by public auction or private sale to recover the money owed and deduct any charges, damages or expenses involved with any surplus or residue to go to the Smiths.

1 September 1859 Indenture made between Mary Maria Smith and John Smith the younger and Benjamin Page Grimsey in consideration of £30 which was also then due.  The Smiths then made a covenant with Grimsey to surrender their property to him by way of a mortgage in consideration of the loan of £500 loan plus interest and the loan of £30 plus interest. He was given the power of sale as previously stated should they default.  The Smiths acknowledged that they were in default and the hereditaments were sold by Grimsey by pubic auction in three lots at the Railway Hotel to John Eade for the sum of £600. Tenement referred to as ‘Angiers’ divided into several tenements part of which had been converted into a Malting Office with a malting office yard and garden.  Formerly in the occupation of W Mortimer, then Coats Gordon, then Robert Emson and lately by Messrs Daniell and Cooper and John Smith.

14 March 1866 Indenture of Mortgage between John Eade and William Howard of Colchester in which Eade agrees to secure the repayment of the sum of £250 (owed to William Howard by John Eade)  or any other sums lent not to exceed the sum of £500 plus interest at 5%. Land and hereditaments conveyed to William Howard.  In the meantime Eade has pulled down the Malting Office and other premises proviso that could be redeemed on redemption of £400, etc.  Power of sale in case of default.

23 March 1868 Indenture of Mortgage between John Eade and John Bawtree, George Henry Errington, John Bawtree the younger and Jeremiah Haddock.  Apparently John Eade owes the banking firm £1528 1/-.  Eade grants a conveyance to the bank of the freehold messauge and tenement divided into 2 tenement previously purchased by Grimseyto be used as security with proviso for redemption.  New amount should not exceed £1500.

8 September 1870 Indenture of further mortgage between John Eade and the banking firm described above.  Refers to an Indenture of 31 December 1868 between John Eade, the banking firm and Bright Wool (sic) of the piece of land and hereditaments previously described. States that by an Indenture dated 7 September 1870 between John Eade and Bright Wool in consideration of £20 paid by John Eade to Bright Wool the use of the piece of land and hereditaments were granted by Bright Wool to John Eade.  However John Eade was still indebted to the second mortgagees so think he gave it to them as payment of debt (or part payment?).  Together with the power of sale etc.  Proviso that the sum of money secured by the indenture should not exceed £30.

17 November 1871  Indenture refers to the death of Jeremiah Haddock on 14 November 1870.  Refers to an Indenture of the 19th day of December 1870 between William Howard, John Eade and the banking firm relating back to an Indenture made between William Howard and John Eade and the bankers on 14 April 1868 made between John Eade and William Howard on a mortgage made for securing the sum of £500. On consideration of the sum paid to Howard by the bankers, John Eade directed that the Indenture should come into the use of the bankers.  It was noted that a large sum of money still remained due to the bankers but John Eade requested that the hereditaments be reconveyed to him so that he might better deal with the same which the bankers had agreed to. Noted that part of the hereditaments consisting of the cottages to the rear which had been in the occupation of Mr Mortlock had since been sold to William Godwin.  Eade therefore received all the hereditaments back apart from the above.
