Viewing Event Record: Chancery, Jane Langley vs Hugh Browker: Hannibal Gammon deposes


In the Chancery suit between Jane Langley and Hugh Browker, Hannibal Gammon recalls that Browker dispensed funds towards 'diverse sums of money due and payable by the said Langley upon bonds to sundry his creditors,' which would then be 'for and towards' the purchase price of Paris Garden. Browker also 'took bonds for the repayment of the said sums of money' in the event that the conveyance of Paris Garden 'should not be perfected.' Gammon recalls that through this arrangement Browker paid a variety of creditors, including Thomas Harrison, John Audley, John Leake, and James White. Gammon also deposes that Langley took a loan from the Orphan's Court for the purchase of the 'manor of Paris Garden of the said Thomas Cure the younger.'
