Administrative/Biographical history:

Abstract of title is a summary of prior ownership of a property, drawn up by solicitors. Such an abstract may go back several hundred years or just a few months, and was usually drawn up just prior to a sale.

A debenture was a certificate or voucher certifying that a sum of money is owing to the person designated in it.
