The document begins by telling that James Burchell of Poynings, Sussex, died in 1858. He left all his copyhold and freehold estate to Frances, the wife of James Rayward of Slangham, Sussex, subject to some specific bequests to:

1. John Graimes
2. James Tiday
3. Thomas Tiday
4. Eliza the wife of Daniel Friend of Preston

(1-4 are all the children of Sarah Tiday)

5. Caroline Graimes, Frances Aufrey, Richard Graimes, Martha Agate and Thomas Graimes ( 5 children of Richard Berry Graimes)
6. William Burhell ( his brother)
7. Martha the wife of Moses Chandler
8. William Chatfield
9. Frank Fowler
10. James Alfred Rayward

Frances Rayward and Timothy Graimes were his Executors and it appears that John and James Angus acted as Trustees. The Indenture gives considerable detail as to when and how the various legacies were paid and now releases John and James Angus from their obligations.
