DESCRIPTION Brief on the hearing for the plaintiffs. Bill of Complaint in the case between Margaret Sillitoe, plaintiff, and Sarah Walmsley (widow), George Kinnear, Thomas Carr and William Pownall, defendants, In Chancery before the Master of the Rolls 1865 S. No.279 Filed 5 December 1865. Stamped. Margaret was formerly of Ipstones but then lived at Bradnop, Staffordshire. Case concerned a promissory note and a mortgage. The complaint was that on 28 January 1855 William Sillitoe lent Sarah and her son Philip Walmsley 500 in return for a promissory note to repay him with 5% interest and the deposition of the deeds of Walmsley's property. Sillitoe died in April 1859 and his will was proven on 1st June 1859 at the Principal Registry. Sillitoe's executors asked the Walmsley's to pay of their debt but they asked Margaret Sillitoe to advance the same amount to them which she agreed to do on the execution of an indenture dated 1 February 1860. This assigned the 500 and interest, etc. to Margaret Sillitoe and granted her the property. The property concerned was a house near the West end of the church-yard formerly occupied by Thomas Philips, then of Mrs Sarah Brentnall, then of Mrs Ann Pratt and now (1860) of Sarah Walmsley. It also included a croft staked out from the Church-Croft which had been in the holding of George Pratt, since of Ann Pratt, then of Isaac Hammond and in 1860 of Benjamin Barlow. The croft was bounded on North and East by Church Croft, on the South by the path leading to the Methodist Chapel and to Mill Street by Brew Hill, and on the East by a lane from the church to land belonging to John Cruso and on to Ball Haye and the Abbey. It includes affidavits by the Plaintiff, the Defendant Thomas Redfern and Adam and Thomas Sillitoe the sons of Margaret Sillitoe. On or about 6 July 1860 Philip Walmsley was declared bankrupt. No interest had been paid to the Plaintiff up to 25 March 1864 and so she entered on the premises and enjoyed the rents etc. The rents and profits were inadequate, however, and so she decided to exercise her right of sale and with the agreement of the defendants put them up for sale -unsuccessfully. The defendants refused to pay the total costs and charges etc. now owing and she thus asked the court to decree that they should do so. Sarah Walmsley counterclaimed that when the property was put up for auction in 14 lots on 1st October 1863 she notified Margaret Sillitoe that she would give 535 for the land in Church Lane, Leek. A hand written note in the margin states "not eligible for building land - almost inaccessible".
