DESCRIPTION Statement of Defence in the case of John Birtles v John Naden in the High Court of Justice {Chancery} before Vice-Chancellor Hall. 1882--B--No.2294. Delivered 10 August 1882. Gregory, Rowcliffes & Co acting as agents for Challinor & Co, Leek the defendant's solicitors. Case concerns trusteeship of monies belonging to Elizabeth Naden. Indenture dated 6 November 1880 between the defendant and his wife Elizabeth and John Burnett and Daniel Cooper is cited. In September 1881 Naden agreed to buy houses under the settlement for 640 and paid 2 to the plaintiff. Both parties visited Challinors to draw up an agreement but had to postpone doing so because of the need to consult the trustees of the settlement on Mrs. Naden. Plaintiff expressed his interest in making money from the sale on several occasions. Trustees were not satisfied with the price asked and obtained a valuation of 536 5s from a land agent Mr. James Gosling Smith. An offer of 550 was made which the Plaintiff refused. The Plaintiff tried to persuade the defendant to complete the purchase by taking him to another solicitor but with the same result. On 10 November 1881 the defendant went to a public house run by the Plaintiff and when drunk was asked to go again to the solicitors (Bishton). He went and was induced to sign a statement that he would buy the property. Shortly afterwards he realised what had been done and told the plaintiff that he declined to purchase the house. Includes "Instructions" to Mr. Badnall dated 14 July 1882 for advice on the chances of success and how to proceed.
