Samuel RIGG, Solicitor, Henry COX, Clerk $

*This was a legatee's suit, by administration summons in chambers, with respect to the estate of Samuel RIGG, who had appointed his wife, Eliza RIGG, and Daniel De la Cherois GOURLAY, M.D. executors. Eliza RIGG permitted her co-executor to receive £1200. He misappropriated it, and was proceeded against under the Fraudulent Trustees Act,, and imprisoned, about £270 having being eventually recovered. In chambers, the chief clerk had found various facts upon a statement brought in by Eliza RIGG, and also on her affidavit, and examination, and cross-examination, with reference to the breach of trust, and also with reference to a draft or agreement for a settlement, which facts were substantially as follows: Samuel RIGG, who was a Quaker, and a solicitor, at Canterbury, in February, 1847, was proposing to marry Eliza RIGG, then Eliza PARNELL, who was possessed of certain property in money, and a promissory note for £500 fromt he Wesleyan Methodist chapel at Canterbury. A draft of a settlement was prepared, and, the following memorandum appended to it: "We have read over this draft, and mutually approve thereof. (signed) Samuel RIGG, Eliza PARNELL." The marriage took place without anything else being done and nothing in fact was done up to the time of Samuel RIGG's death, but it appeared that in certain letters the subject was referred to, in which Samuel RIGG said, "What better trustee canst thou have than thy husband," and use other similar expressions. William PARNELL, a cousin of Eliza RIGG and another person being proposed, and so the matter ended. Mrs. RIGG also stated that Samuel RIGG took her to the Bank of England, and asked her to sign a book saying it was better that her stock should stand in the name of RIGG, and she having signed it, after his death discovered that it was a transfer of her stock to him. He also purchased a house at Notting Hill for £250, and paid interest upon the stock till his death. Upon these facts the chief clerk had found the state of the accounts, and that the stock, &c, included in the proposed settlement did not form part of the testator's personal estate - in other words, that there was a binding agreement for a settlement. To these findings the plaintiffs excepted, on the ground that it was ultra vires for the chief clerk upon an administration summons to enter on such questions, the 45th section fo the 15 & 16 Vict. c. 86, contemplating only simple accounts, but the decision of no questions. .....etc. (TWR, vol 10 1862)

"At a court holden at Canterbury in the Eastern Division of the County of Kent before me, the revising barrister appointed to revise the list of voters for the said Eastern Division of the said County, on the 22nd day of October, 1861, the Reverend Francis James HOLLAND, Joseph BURN, and Thomas PARNELL, severally claimed to be placed on the list of voters for the said Eastern Division of the said county in respect of property situate wholly, or in part within the parish, called the Ville of Christchurch, in the said city of Canterbury, and were duly objected to by Benjamin Richard Eastes, a person on the said Register of Voters, on the ground that they did not possess the requisite qualification. the claims were set forth in the following form:

Francis James HOLLAND, 14 St. Dunstan's Terrace, Canterbury, Freehold office. As one of the six preachers in the cathedral church of Canterbury.

As regards the claim of the Rev. Francis James HOLLAND, the facts proved before me were that the said Rev. Francis James HOLLAND was appoionted by the Archbishop of Canterbury one of the six preachers of Canterbury Cathedral, that he held his office during good behaviour, provided he remained in the diocese, and preached at least twice a year in the said Cathedral, that he received an annual stipend of £32 a year as preacher from the treasurer of the dean and chapter at the audit room in the Cathedral precincts, situate within the said Ville of Christchurch. It was further proved that, each of the six preachers formerly received an annual stipend of £20 a year, and a house to live in, but that the stipend was afterwards increased, and the house taken away." 1862
