Indenture relating to the sale of water grist mills and land adjoining St John Street, Wells

3 sheets of velum. The larger two sheets comprise an Indenture measuring approx. 71 x 56 cm, bearing 5 wax seals and 5 signatures relating to the sale for £290 of water grist mills and land at St John Street, Wells by F.W. Morgan and others to W.I. Welsh. The mill is variously described as Inn Mills and Mill Pond Mills and the land (shown on an attached plan) was formerly occupied by Wells City Brewery. This is annotated by reference to two later conveyances, the first conveying the water grist mills from W.I. Welsh to The Right Rev Richard Lord Bishop of Bath and Wells (15 May 1852) and the second noting the sale of a parcel of land to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England and Wales (2 September 1865). The smaller document is a Deed for Married Women measuring 25 x 21 cm, one of the parties to the 1845 conveyance being Mary Morgan, wife of J.F. Morgan.
