Atkins versus Henriques.

The Lord Chief Justice of the Court of King's Bench, in the usual Manner, brought up the Transcript of the Record upon a Writ of Error, wherein

Robert Atkins is Plaintiff, and Jacob Lopez Henriques is Defendant.

Mr. Lloyd's Petition, for a Writ of Summons to Parliament, as Lord Lumley:

The Lord Delawarr reported from the Lords Committees for Privileges, to whom was referred the Petition of Robert Lumley Lloyd, Rector of St. Paul's Covent Garden, presented to his Majesty, and by His Majesty referred to this House; thereby suggesting, That the Petitioner is Heir at Law to Ralph Lord Lumley;" and praying, "That His Majesty will be graciously pleased to give Directions for a Writ to be issued, to summon the Petitioner to the Upper House of Parliament: That the Committee had directed a special Report to be made to the House, of the Matter as it appeared before them; which he was ready to make, when their Lordships will please to receive the same."

Ordered, That the said Report be now received.

Accordingly his Lordship reported from the said Committee, as follows:

"That, the House having directed the proper Officers to attend the Committee, with such Writs of Summons, Wills, Records, and other Writings, as might be proper and necessary for making out the Petitioner's Claim, or any Way relating to the same; and ordered Liberty to the Petitioner to be heard by his Counsel; as also Counsel to be heard for the Earl of Scarbrough; and further directed, that Notice should be given to His Majesty's Attorney General, that Counsel might be likewise heard in His Majesty's Behalf: And Counsel on the Behalf of the said Parties, and of His Majesty, attending accordingly:

"The Petitioner's Counsel opened the Nature of their Claim; and produced the Roll, upon which was entered the Writ of Summons, by which Ralph de Lumley was summoned to Parliament in the Eighth Year of the Reign of Richard the Second; and informed the Committee, "That the said Ralph de Lumley and Robert his Eldest Son were both attainted of High Treason, in the First Year of the Reign of King Henry the Fourth;" and then produced an Act of Parliament made in the First Year of the Reign of King Edward the Fourth, upon the Petition of Thomas Lumley Knight, Cousin and Heir to the said Ralph de Lumley Knight; that is to say, Son to John, Son to the said Ralph; whereby it was enacted, "That the Attainder of the said Ralph de Lumley should be, and was thereby, reversed;" and produced the Roll upon which was entered the Writ of Summons by which the said Thomas de Lumley Knight was summoned to Parliament, in the First Year of the Reign of Edward the Fourth. And the Petitioner's Counsel then produced several Inquisitions post Mortem, to prove, that the said Thomas de Lumley Knight Baron de Lumley had Issue George de Lumley Knight Baron of Lumley, his Eldest Son; and that the said George Lord Lumley had Issue Thomas de Lumley Knight, his Eldest Son, who died in the Life-time of his Father; and that the said Thomas had Issue Richard de Lumley Baron de Lumley; and that the said Richard had Issue John de Lumley Knight Baron de Lumley; and that the said John Lord Lumley had Issue George his Eldest Son.

"And the Petitioner's Counsel informed the Committee, "That the said George Lumley was attainted of High Treason, in the Life-time of his Father, in the Twenty-ninth Year of the Reign of King Henry the Eighth; and that he left Issue John his Eldest Son."

"And the Petitioner's Counsel then produced an Act of Parliament, made in the First Year of the Reign of King Edward the Sixth, upon the Petition of the said John Lumley, Eldest Son of the said George Lumley, late Son and Heir Apparent of John late Lord Lumley deceased; whereby, after a Recital of the Attainder of the said George Lumley, by reason whereof the said John Lumley stood and was a Person in his Lineage and Blood corrupted, and deprived of all Degree, Estate, Name, Fame, and of all other Inheritance, that should or might come to him from his said Father, or from the said John late Lord Lumley his Grandfather, if the said George his late Father had not been attainted; and also of all other Inheritance that should, or might by Possibility, have come to him, by any other his collateral Ancestors on his said Father's Side, to whom he should or might have conveyed himself as next Cousin and Heir of Blood by Mesne Degrees by his said Father; it was enacted, "That the said John Lumley, and the Heirs Males of his Body coming, should have, hold, enjoy, and bear, the Name, Dignity, Estate, and Preeminence, of a Baron of this Realm; and that he and his said Heirs Males of his Body coming might and should be accepted, taken, known, reputed, called, and written, from thenceforth, by the Name of the Lord Lumley; and that he and the Heirs Males of his Body should have and enjoy, in and at all Parliaments and other Places, the Room, Name, Place, and Voice, of a Baron of this Realm; and that the said John Lumley and his Heirs might be, and should be, restored and enhabilled only in Blood, as Son and Heir, and Heirs, to the said George Lumley, and as Cousin and Heir, and Heirs, of the said John late Lord Lumley, and made only Heir and Heirs in Blood, as well to the said George, as to the said John late Lord Lumley, and either of them, by the Name of Lord Lumley."

"And the Petitioner's Counsel produced an Inquisition taken after the Death of the said John Lord Lumley, at Southwark, in the County of Surrey, the Thirtieth of May in the Seventh Year of the Reign of King James the First, to prove that the said John Lord Lumley died the Eleventh of April then last, without Issue; and that Splandian Lloyd was his Cousin and next Heir, videlicet, Eldest Son of Barbara Williams then deceased, Sister of the said John Lord Lumley; and that the said Splandian Lloyd was then of the Age of Forty Years and upwards.

"And the Petitioner's Counsel then produced a Book from the College of Arms, wherein a Visitation of the noble Families in the County of Surrey, taken in the Year 1623, is entered; as also a Commission under the Great Seal, authorizing the said Visitation, to prove that the said Splandian Lloyd died without Issue; and also several Deeds and Wills, to prove that Henry Lloyd, the said Splandian's next Brother, had Issue Henry his Eldest Son and Heir; and that the same Henry had Issue Henry his Eldest Son and Heir; and that the last named Henry had Issue the Petitioner Robert Lloyd his Eldest Son and Heir.

"And the Petitioner's Counsel insisted, "That the said Barony of Lumley was a Barony in Fee Simple; and that the said John the last Lord Lumley was, by the said Act of Parliament of the First of Edward the Sixth, restored to the said Barony in Fee Simple; and that the Petitioner, being Heir General of the said John Lord Lumley, was entitled to have a Writ to summon him to the Upper House of Parliament."

"And then the Counsel for the Earl of Scarbrough were heard; who insisted, "That it was not clear that the Barony of Lumley, created by Richard the Second, was created by Writ, or that it was a Barony in Fee Simple; no Evidence being given by the Petitioner that he had made any Search in the proper Offices, to discover whether there was any Patent of Creation of the said Barony; and all who had enjoyed the Barony, being lineally descended from the First Baron, and deriving their Descent through Males only, were consequently entitled to it, though it were a Barony in Tail Male only.

"That, admitting it to be a Barony in Fee Simple; yet, George Lumley being attainted and executed in the Life of John Lord Lumley his Father, upon the Death of the said John Lord Lumley the said Barony became extinct.

"That, by the said Act of Parliament of the First of Edward the Sixth, a new Barony of Lumley was created, and limited by express Words to John Lord Lumley in Tail Male; and that, upon his Death without Issue Male, the said Barony likewise became extinct.

"That the Attainder of George Lumley is not reversed by the said Act, but remains yet in Force; and that the Restitution of the said John Lord Lumley in Blood only, while the Attainder remains unreversed, could not possibly revive the ancient Barony, which was before extinct, and merged in the Crown, in Consequence of that Attainder.

"That the Construction of the Act of First Edward the Sixth, contended for by the Petitioner, would have this Absurdity, if it prevailed; (videlicet,) that the same Act must give the same Barony to the same Person under Two different Limitations, One in Tail Male, the other in Fee Simple, and both in Possession; and was not therefore to be admitted.

"That this was yet more clear from several Clauses and Provisions in the said Act, from which it was evident, that it was not the Intention of the Legislature to revive the ancient Honour.

"That there was an Instance in the same Family, that a bare Restitution in Blood, though by Act of Parliament, doth not revive the Honour, without reversing the Attainder by which it was extinguished."

"To support which Assertion, they produced an Act of Parliament made in the Thirteenth Year of Henry the Fourth, upon the Petition of John Lumley Knight, Second Son of Ralph the First Lord Lumley, taking Notice, that the said Ralph Lord Lumley and Thomas his Eldest Son were both attainted of High Treason; by which it was enacted, "That the said John Lumley should be restored in Blood, as Son and Heir of the said Ralph Lord Lumley, and Heir to the said Thomas Lumley." And the said Earl's Counsel insisted, "That, notwithstanding the said Act of Restitution of the said John Lumley, the said John or Thomas his Son were never summoned to Parliament, until the Attainder of the said Ralph Lord Lumley was reversed by the Act of Parliament of the First of Edward the Fourth, produced by the Petitioner's Counsel."

"And Mr. George Holmes, Deputy Keeper of the Records in The Tower, was examined, to prove that he had made diligent Search in the Records of The Tower; and did not find, that, after the Attainder of the said Ralph Lord Lumley, there was any Summons to Parliament directed to the said John Lumley Knight his Son, or to the said Thomas Lumley Knight his Grandson, until the First Year of the Reign of Edward the Fourth.

"And the said Earl of Scarbrough's Counsel produced the Record of the Attainder of the said George Lumley; and alledged, "That the said Earl is Heir Male of the First Lord Lumley; and, to prove the same, they produced several Settlements and Wills, which were read; (videlicet,) a Settlement made by the said John the last Lord Lumley, dated 23d August, 29 Eliz. Anno 1587, whereby the said John Lord Lumley, to the Intent that his Estate might remain in his Name and Blood, and in the House and Family of the said Lord Lumley, limited the Bulk of his Estate, in Failure of Issue of his Body, to the First and other Sons of Barbara Williams his Sister, in Tail Male, Remainder to Roger Lumley therein named, and described to be Son of Anthony Lumley, in Tail Male, with other Remainders; and thereby settled Two Annuities of £20. and £100. upon the said Roger Lumley, and the Heirs Males of his Body, being of the Blood and Kindred of the said Lord Lumley; in which Settlement there was a Power of Revocation.

"And the said Roger Lumley having afterwards Issue Richard his Eldest Son, Great Grandfather of the said Earl of Scarbrough; the said John Lord Lumley, by a Second Settlement, dated 2d May, 39th Eliz. Anno 1597, in Consideration (inter alia) of the natural Love and Affection which the said Lord Lumley bore to Richard Lumley, being of his Blood and Kindred, that is to say, Son and Heir Apparent of Roger Lumley, Son of Anthony Lumley deceased, Second Son of Richard Lord Lumley deceased, Father of John Lord Lumley deceased, Father of George Lumley Esquire deceased, Father of the said John Lord Lumley, and for the Advancement of him the said Richard Lumley, and the Heirs Males of his Body, and of the Heirs Males of the Body of the said Roger Lumley his Father, settled the Bulk of his Estate, in Failure of Issue of his Body, to the Use of the said Richard Lumley, in Tail Male, Remainder to the Heirs Males of the Body of the said Roger Lumley, with other Remainders over, with a Power of Revocation.

"That the said John Lord Lumley, by a Third Settlement, dated 10 March, 4to Jacobi Imi, Anno 1606, for the like Considerations as in the said Second Settlement, and wherein the said Richard Lumley is described to be of his Blood and Kindred, in the same Manner, and by such Descents, as are mentionea in the said Second Settlement, settled the Bulk of his Estate, in Failure of Heirs of his Body, to the Use of the said Richard Lumley for his Life, and to his First and other Sons in Tail Male, with like Estates to the Two Brothers of Richard, (videlicet,) George and John Lumley, for their Lives, and their Sons respectively, in Tail Male, Remainder to the Right Heirs of the said Lord Lumley, with a Power of Revocation.

"That the said Lord Lumley, by his Fourth and last Settlement, dated 14th of February, 6o Jacobi Imi, Anno 1608, settled the Bulk of his Estate, after the Death of himself and the Lady Elizabeth his Wife, and Failure of Heirs of his Body, to the Use of Trustees for Twenty-one Years; and then to the Use of the said Richard Lumley and his First, and other Sons, in Tail Male, with like Estates to his said two Brothers George and John Lumley, and their Sons respectively, Remainder to the Right Heirs of the said Lord Lumley."

"And the said Earl's Counsel also produced the said John Lord Lumley's Will, dated the 28th of January in the Third Year of King James the First, and the said Inquisition taken after his Death; in both which, the said Richard Lumley is mentioned and described to be the said Lord Lumley's Kinsman, in the same Manner as in the said Settlements; and they also produced the Will of the Lady Elizabeth Lumley, Relict of the said Lord Lumley, dated the 6th of November in the 14th Year of the Reign of King James the First, wherein she gave to the said Richard Lum ley, her Husband's Kinsman, all her Household Stuff, Marbles, and Pictures, in the Castle of Lumley, to remain there as Heir Looms; under which Settlements and Wills the said Estates, or the greatest Part thereof, and the said Heir Looms, and particularly the Castle of Lumley, are, and have ever since the Death of the said John Lord Lumley and his Lady been, enjoyed by the said Earl of Scarbrough and his Ancestors.

"And the said Earl's Counsel also produced an Act of Parliament, made in the Twenty-first Year of King James the First, to enable the said Richard Lumley to sell Part of the Estate settled upon him by the said Lord Lumley; in the Preamble whereof the said Richard Lumley is mentioned to be the nearest Kinsman of the Name and Blood of the said Lord Lumley: And an Instrument under the Hand and Seal of Henry Lloyd, the Petitioner's Great Grandfather, dated 26th February 1623, whereby he gave his Consent to the said Act of Parliament, was also produced and read.

"And the said Earl's Counsel also produced Letters Patents under the Great Seal of England, dated the 12th of July in the Fourth Year of King Charles the First, whereby His then Majesty created the said Richard Lumley Lord Viscount Lumley of Waterford in the Kingdom of Ireland; and in the Preamble thereof mentions him to be of the ancient and noble Family of the Lumleys of Lumley Castle.

"And the said Earl's Counsel informed the Committee, "That the said Richard Lumley Lord Viscount Waterford had Issue John his Eldest Son, who died in his Father's Life-time, and left Richard his Eldest Son, Father of the present Earl of Scarbrough;" and, to prove the same, produced the Will of the said John Lumley, dated the 2d of October 1658.

"And the said Earl's Counsel also produced Letters Patents under the Great Seal of England, dated the 31st of May in the 33d Year of the Reign of King Charles the Second; whereby His said Majesty created the present Earl of Scarbrough's Father a Peer and Baron of this Realm, by the Style and Title of Baron Lumley, de Lumley, in the County Palatine of Durham; and in the Preamble thereof mentions him to be descended from the ancient Family of the Lumleys, in the County of Durham.

"And it being desired by the said Earl's Counsel, "That the Journal of this House might be produced, to shew that the present Earl of Scarbrough was, by His Majesty's Writ of Summons, in the First Year of His Reign, called up to his Father's Barony (by the Name of Richard Lumley, de Lumley, in the County Palatine of Durham, Chevalier), and took his Place by Virtue of the said Writ of Summons;" the same was admitted by the Petitioner's Counsel.

"And, upon the whole, the Earl's Counsel insisted, "That the said Earl is well entitled to the said Barony of Lumley; and that the Petitioner hath not the least Colour of Right to the same; nor have any of the Petitioner's Ancestors, since the Death of John Lord Lumley, which happened the 11th of April 1609, ever claimed the said Barony; though it appeared they were under no Impediment to pursue their Claim, if they had any."

"And then the Petitioner's Counsel were heard upon their Reply.

"And afterwards the Counsel on Behalf of His Majesty was heard.

"And then the Counsel were ordered to withdraw.

Resolution that Mr. Lloyd has no Right to a Writ of Summons.

"And, upon the whole Matter, the Committee came to this Resolution, That the Petitioner hath not any Right to a Writ of Summons to Parliament, as prayed by his Petition."

Which Report was read by the Clerk.

And the said Resolution, being read a Second Time, was agreed to by the House.

Ordered, That the said Resolution be laid before His Majesty, by the Lords with White Staves.
