- This indenture documents a mortgage made by Hiram Capron and Joseph Van Orman with Thomas Clark and Samuel Street. They mortgaged land within lots 29, 30, 31 and the southernmost half of lot 30 for the sum of £875.
Van Orman was an iron founder, and one of Capron's associates from the blast furnace. Thomas Racey was the County of Halton registrar who notarized the document. The witnesses to the signing were Cynthia Street and Thomas Canby.
Clark and Street had bought this land from William and John Holme ten years earlier; John Holme had bought it from William Dickson five years before that. The indentures documenting these transactions are also a part of this collection and are linked to on the right.
- The original date of signing was January 4th, 1832, but the cover also includes a memorial of this indenture by Racey, dated July 17th, 1834.
