The people referred to in the transliterated indenture are connected through a legal transaction which involves the transfer, sale, or mortgage of property.

These people are:
• Joseph Tomlin: Resident of the parish of St Thomas in the City of Oxford.
• William Routley: Resident of Bampton in the County of Oxford, identified as a
servant. He is part of the first group involved in the indenture.
• George Frederick Holloway and Charles William Holloway: Both from Bampton,
identified as printers and stationers. They are part of the second group in the
• Ann: Wife of Joseph Tomlin.
• Eliza: Wife of William Routley.

• Sarah: Wife of William Tipton.
• Mary Bartlett: Resident of Bampton identified as a spinster. She is part of the
third group in the indenture.

the fourth group in the indenture.

• Elizabeth Bartlett, widow of Joseph Bartlett, mortgaged properties to George Frederick
Holloway and Charles William Holloway in 1849. (Joseph Bartlett purchased these
properties by a separate indenture in 1842 from people including Thomas Denton who
was, at the time, Lord of the Manor of Bampton)
• Later, Elizabeth Bartlett bequeathed her properties to Joseph Tomlin and William
Routley upon her death in 1858, with the instruction to sell them and distribute the
proceeds among her four daughters.
• Joseph Tomlin and William Routley, acting on Elizabeth Bartlett's will, arranged a sale by
• David Plaster Junior became the highest bidder at the auction, agreeing to purchase the
properties for £350.
• Of this amount, £100 was paid to George Frederick Holloway and Charles William
Holloway (presumably to settle the mortgage), and the remaining £250 was paid to
Joseph Tomlin and William Routley.
Thus, the transaction involves the sale of Elizabeth Bartlett's properties, handled by Joseph
Tomlin and William Routley, to David Plaster Junior, with part of the proceeds used to settle
a mortgage with George Frederick Holloway and Charles William Holloway
