Description

Two copies of the report of Sir Edward Clark in the case between Simon Chambers, plaintiff, and John Gregory, Margaret his wife and Edward Waste, defendants, that, although it appears in the deed of entail, being a covenant to lead the uses of a fine, dated 10 August, 12 Elizabeth, that the regnal year has been altered from 13 to 12, he was also shown a deed of feoffment dated in October following, wherein the said deed of covenant is described as dated 10 August, 12 Elizabeth; that he therefore concluded that the alteration was made before the sealing of the deed of covenant, although no note of this was endorsed on the deed.
