Attested copy of the answer of Edmund Gregory, gent., to the bill of revivor of Jane Gregory, widow; that he believes the lands in Kingshull and Stoneley to be lawfully extended and that the statute was acknowledged before the making of the jointure to the plaintiff; that the said Edmund Gregory, since the extent was made, had permitted Arthur Gregory to enjoy the manors of Brinklowe, Alspath and Stivechall, except a parcel of land in Stivechall worth per annum 12 pounds; which parcel of land was held by the said Edmund up to the death of the said Arthur and was then released to the plaintiff by reason of a conveyance made to the said Arthur and her jointly at the time of their marriage; that he has not raised any excess profits from the extended lands, and what he has raised he has been constrained to spend on the legal costs of the present case.
