1782 [EA] - 1786 [LA] → Mortgagee-in-Possession

The mortgage was held by the firm of Thomas Hankey & Co. and could conceivably refer to Joseph Chaplin Hankey I, this man's father (d. 1773), if the mortgage had been advanced in his lifetime. However, Craton and Walvin show Wallins [sic] as offered to the Hankeys in 1779 as collateral for a debt of £8,078.
