Viewing Event Record: Chancery, Worth and Blaney vs Baskervile and Browne: Heywood deposes


Thomas Heywood testifies in the Chancery suit of Elllis Worth and John Blaney v. Susan Baskervile and William Browne. Heywood denies that the company owes a debt to Baskervile's late husband Thomas Greene: Greene had half the profits of the galleries for several years, for which Heywood believes he did not give account. If anything, Greene owes the company money. Heywood cites the case of John Thare, whose widow received no payment following his deaths. Heywood says that when he (Heywood), Francis Walpole, and Richard Perkins left the company, none were allowed to take shares with them. He does not know of any agreement which stipulates that defunct or departed members of the company are allowed to pass on or retain their shares.
