"To the Right Honourable the Lords assembled
"The humble Petition of John Earl of Shrewsbery; and Frances his Wife, in the Behalf
of themselves and others the Coheirs and
Persons entitled by and under the Coheirs
of Anne Lady Arundell of Warder, deceased;
"That Thomas the First Lord Arundell of Warder,
by good Assurance in Law, long before his Death,
did settle the Honour and Hundred of Christ Church
and Westower, in the County of South'ton, to the Use
of himself for Life; with Remainder to Anne Lady
Arundell and her Heirs.
"That the said Anne Lady Arundell died in June,
13° Car. leaving Issue Six Daughters; (videlicet)
Katherin Evre Widow, the Lady Mary Som'sett, the
Lady Baltemore, your Petitioner Frances, Margarett
the Wife of Sir John Fortescue, and Clare the Wife
of Humfrey Weld Esquire.
"That the said Lady Fortescue died in December,
13° Caroli; leaving Issue Frances her Daughter and
Heir, then an Infant, and still under Age.
"That the said Thomas Lord Arundell died in November, 15° Car.
"That, by several Offices, in 17° and 18° Caroli,
the Title and Estate of the Coheirs were found; and
thereupon the King became entitled to the Wardship
of the said Frances Fortescue the Infant, and to Livery
and Primer Seisin of the Residue.
"That the Lord Baltemore, not contented to have
his Part in Right of his Wife as Coheir, set on-foot
a Deed, made upon voluntary Consideration by the
said Thomas Lord Arundell in his Sickness, a little
before his Death, when his Memory failed him, and
tendered to him to seal amongst many other Things;
which Deed was got secretly and by Surprize, and is
void in Law.
"That thereupon an Information was exhibited, in
the Behalf of the Coheirs, in the Court of Wards,
against the said Lord Baltemore; and he exhibited a
Cross Bill against the Coheirs; to which there were
respective Answers put in, Issues joined, Witnesses
on both Sides examined, Publication passed, and the
Cause ready for Hearing, when, by Ordinance of
Parliament, the said Court was dissolved.
It is therefore humbly prayed, That your Honours will be pleased (seeing the Court of
Wards is determined) to hear and adjudge the
Cause upon the Proofs there taken; otherwise
your Petitioners will be put to great Expences
and Delay of Time; the Lord Baltemore in
the mean Time keeping the Possession, and
raising great Profits to himself, by Wood Sales,
Fines, Rents, and otherwise; and also it will
be very prejudicial to examine Witnesses de
novo, some being dead, and after Publication
very dangerous. All which is submitted to
your Honours Wisdom and Justice.
"And your Petitioners shall, &c."
