Scope and content
This covenant deed dated 14th April 1832 is important in that it informs us of the financial difficulties that Mr. Thomas Finn was having to confront as well as the sudden death of John Jeken Kennett. We see that Thomas Kennett, the son and heir of the surgeon, finding that Mr Finn was unable to repay the mortgage provided the initial solution of advancing him an additional £200. The indenture then goes on to record the subsequent collaboration between the solicitor and Mr. Finn in devising a temporary solution to the problem which was to jointly assign the mortgage on the mill to Henry Elve of Dover, gentleman, for the combined sum of £800.
