1623. Chancery B. and A. James I. A.1. No. 4.
Bill, dated 20 May 1623, by William Alston of Woodbridge, co. Suffolk, gent. v. William Alston, his father.
About 36 years since one William Alston of Newton, co. Suffolk, gent., Orator's grandfather, was seised of a messuage and 40 acres of land in Sudburie, co. Suffolk, the said house being then and now an inn called "The Swanne." He had issue William Alston, orator's father, who about 35 years since married one Marryan Holborowe, daughter of Richard Holborowe of Bullmer, co. Essex, with whom he had a great marriage portion, to the sum of L200 or L300 at the least, whilst William Alston the grandfather settled the above-said premises on his said son in tail.
Marion died about 24 years since, leaving Orator a child not above 8 years old. The trust deeds &c. were put into the hands of Edward Newman of Sudbury, who has given them up to defendant or his agents; and Orator's estate from this and other causes is greatly endangered.
Defendant's answer acknowledges that his father held lease for 1000 years of said messuage &c. under demise from Roger Warryn, Esq., dated in or about October 27 Elizabeth, and settled such parts thereof as were freehold as above stated as Jointure in consideration of defendant's marriage, December 34 Elizabeth.
After death of said Marion, defendant sold the premises to one Richard Ellis, late of Sudbury, in or about October, 1 Jas.I., a fine being levied thereof, Easter term 2 Jas. I., in which defendant's father joined.
