Bp. London against Fffytche in Error:

The Order of the Day being read for the further Consideration of the Cause, wherein the Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of London is Plaintiff, and Lewis Disney Fffytche Esquire is Defendant; and for the Judges to deliver their Opinions upon the Questions of Law proposed to them on Friday the 9th Day of this Instant May:

The Earl of Mansfield acquainted the House, "That the Judges differed in their Opinions upon the said Questions."

Judges Opinions delivered seriatim.

Ordered, That the Judges present do deliver their Opinions upon the said Questions seriatim, with their Reasons:

Accordingly, Mr. Justice Heath was heard upon the said Questions; and,

Upon the First Question delivered his Opinion, That the Agreement stated in this Case is not an Agreement for the Benefit to the Patron within the Intent and Meaning of the Statute."

Upon the Second Question delivered his Opinion That if the Patron present, for or by Reason of such an Agreement, the Presentation will not be void."

Upon the Third Question delivered his Opinion, That giving such a Bond does not secure a corrupt or illegal Benefit to the Patron, being only intended to enforce the Resignation of the Benefice; and that the being obliged to have Recourse to the Penalty of the Bond will be no Benefit to the Patron within the Intent and Meaning of the Statute."

Upon the Fourth Question delivered his Opinion, That if the Patron present to a Benefice for or by Reason of such Bond, such Presentation will not be void."

Upon the Fifth Question, he desired Leave, as it had not been a Question in the Courts below, nor argued at their Lordships Bar, to decline giving any Opinion upon it.

Upon the Sixth Question delivered his Opinion, That whether the Incumbent can compel the Ordinary to accept of the Resignation or not, it is not a corrupt Benefit to the Patron."

Upon the Seventh Question he gave the same Answer as to that of the Fourth Question.

Upon the Eighth Question delivered his Opinion, that the Unfitness of the Defendant is not alledged with sufficient Certainty."

Upon the Ninth Question delivered his Opinion, That the Plea is not sufficient in Law to bar the Defendant in Error."

Upon the Tenth Question delivered his Opinion, That the Unfitness as set forth in the Plea is not traversable."

Upon the Eleventh Question delivered his Opinion, That the Excuse alledged upon this Record for not admitting, instituting, and inducting the Clerk is not sufficient in Law."

Upon the Twelfth Question delivered his Opinion, That the Bond stated in the Pleas is good and valid in Law;" and gave his Reasons.

Then Mr. Justice Buller was heard upon the said Questions, and gave the same Answers as Mr. Justice Heath.

Then Mr. Baron Perryn was heard upon the said Questions:

And to the First Question gave the following Answer:

It is a Benefit, but not corrupt, within Statute of 31st Eliz. Ch. 6. Sect. 5th."

To the Second Question gave the following Answer:
"Such Presentation will not be void within the Intention and Meaning of said Statute."

To the Third Question gave the following Answer:

"I think it is a Bond for securing a Benefit to the Patron."

To the Fourth Question gave the following Answer:
"I am of Opinion that notwithstanding a Patron does present by reason of such Bond, such Presentation will not be void."

To the Fifth Question gave the following Answer:
"I am of Opinion the Ordinary is compellable to accept the Resignation in the Case stated, unless he can shew a simoniacal or corrupt Agreement, or other sufficient Cause to the contrary."

To the Sixth Question gave the following Answer:
"Whether the Incumbent can or cannot controul in the Case stated, I think such Bond is a Benefit, but not a corrupt one, within the Meaning of Statute of 31st Elizabeth."

To the Seventh Question gave the following Answer:
"I am of Opinion if a Patron does present for or by reason of such last-mentioned Bond, such Presentation will not be void."

To the Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Questions gave the following Answers:

"I am of Opinion that the Unfitness of the Defendant in Error in the Second Plea mentioned is not alledged with sufficient Certainty:

That the said Plea is not sufficient in Law to bar the Defendant in Error from maintaining his Action:

And that the Unfitness in the said Plea set forth, is not traversable."

To the Eleventh and Twelfth Questions gave the following Answers:

I am of Opinion, that the Excuse alledged upon this Record for not admitting, instituting and inducting the Clerk of the Plaintiff, is not sufficient in Law:

And that the Bond stated in the Pleas, is good and valid in Law;" and gave his Reasons.

Then Mr. Baron Eyre was heard upon the said Questions.

And to the First Question gave the following Answer:
"That it is an Agreement for a Benefit."

To the Second Question gave the following Answer:
"That it does avoid the Presentation."

To the Third Question gave the following Answer:
"That the Bond is a Benefit."

To the Fourth Question gave the following Answer:
"That it does avoid the Presentation."

To the Fifth Question he desired Leave, as it had not been a Question in the Courts below, nor argued at their Lordships Bar, to decline giving any Opinion upon it.

To the Sixth Question gave the following Answer:

Assuming that the Bishop may refuse it, is a Benefit in respect of the Contingency, which such Incumbent cannot controul."

To the Seventh Question gave the following Answer:

"Assuming that the Bishop may refuse, it does avoid the Presentation."

To the Eighth Question gave the following Answer:

"The Unfitness not alledged with sufficient Certainty."

To the Ninth Question gave the following Answer:

"The Plea not sufficient in Law, to bar the Defendant in Error from maintaining his Action."

To the Tenth Question gave the following Answer:

"The Unfitness in the Second Plea set forth, as set forth, not traversable."

To the Eleventh Question gave the following Answer:
"The Excuse in the First Plea is sufficient."

To the Twelfth Question gave the following Answer:
"The Excuse in the Second Plea is not sufficient."

Upon these Pleadings, it is not competent for the Plaintiff in Error to object to the Validity of the Bonds stated in the Pleadings, and therefore they are to be taken to be good and valid, and not corrupt and void in Law;" and gave his Reasons.

Then Mr. Justice Nares was heard upon the said Questions, and gave the same Answers as Mr. Justice Heath and Mr. Justice Buller.

Ordered, That the further Consideration of the said Cause, and the further Hearing of the Judges upon the Questions of Law put to them, be put off to Wednesday next; and that the Judges do then attend.
