Viewing Event Record: Chancery, Margaret Brayne vs the Burbages: Cuthbert Burbage deposes


Cuthbert Burbage deposes that Robert Miles came to his father's house around 16 November 1590 and demanded the money due Margaret Brayne under the terms of the 1578 arbitrament (and reapplied by the 13 November court order). Burbage cannot testify to his father's response, but he himself refused to pay, noting that he would give his reasons in court and that neither Miles nor Margaret Brayne had a right there. Miles approached his father in such a rude fashion that James Burbage threatened to throw Miles off the property. Burbage cannot testify to his father's response when Margaret Brayne came to his house or the Theatre.
