Copy letters from William, archbishop of Canterbury, granting to Samuel Billingsley of the Liberty of the Rolls, London, stationer, administration of the goods and chattels of Porter Chaplin, deceased. The administration is intended merely to attend and strengthen a case begun in Chancery between Thomas Chaplin, plaintiff, (brother and heir of the said Porter Chaplin) and Charles Fitzwilliams and Frances his wife, Edward Aiscoglie and Elizabeth his wife, and William Vavasor and Anne his wife (which Frances, Elizabeth and Anne are the daughters of the said Porter Chaplin) concerning the will of the said Porter Chaplin. The administration had formerly been granted to Anne Chaplin, widow of the said Porter Chaplin, but since her death had expired, and the case cannot proceed until another administrator is made a party in the suit.
