Legal cases - Gregory family


Four copies of an order in Chancery in the case between Simon Chambers, plaintiff, and John Gregory, Margaret his wife and Edward Waste, defendants, dated 14 May, 8 Charles I. Because Jane Wast, in her examination, confessed that she had lately assigned her interest in the extended lands to John Gregory, son of Arthur Gregory who made the first lease, for 40 pounds, of which she had received only 20 marks; that she had done this on the advice of her counsel, Mr. Wise, and her solicitor, James Prescott, who were also acting for John Gregory, and that the assignment was fraudulent to frustrate the orders of the court, it is ordered that process be awarded against Jane Wast, John Gregory and Margaret Gregory, and the statute assigned to Simon Chambers unless the defendants can show good cause to the contrary.
