Woodman versus Bye, in Error.
Whereas Ferdinando Bye brought an Action of Trover, in His Majesty's Court of King's Bench, against John Woodman, for certain Goods seized and taken from him; and, in Prosecution of the said Action, had Judgement given for him, in Easter Term, 13° Caroli Iidi Regis: Thereupon the said John Woodman brought his Writ of Error before the Lords in Parliament; and, according to Rule, 'signed Errors; and said, "Quod in Recordo et Process. prædict. ac etiam in Redditione Judicii prædict. manifest. est Errat. in hoc, videlicet, Quod Narrat. prædict. Materiaque in ead. content. minus sufficient. in Lege existunt ad Actionem ipsius Ferdinand. Bye inde versus ipsum Joh'em Woodman habend. manutenend. ideo in eo manifest. est Errat. Errat. est etiam in hoc, quod ubi per Record. prædict. apparet quod Judic. prædict. in Formâ prædict. reddit. reddit. suit pro præfat. Ferdinand. Bye versus prædict. Joh'em Woodman versus (fn. 1) eand. dict. Ferdinand. Bye, ideo in eo manifest. est Errat. &c. Et prædict. Ferdinand. Bye in propriâ Personâ venit, et dicit, Quod nec in Recordo et Processu prædict. nec in Redditione Judicii prædict. in ullo est Errat. et petit quod Curia hic procedat ad Examinationem tam Record. et Process. prædict. quam Materiarum prædict. superius pro Error. assign. Sed quia, &c."
The Lords in Parliament hearing this Day Counsel argue the same on both Sides at this Bar; and, after Examination of the Record and Process, and upon mature Deliberation of the whole Business, with the Advice of the Judges then present, gave this Judgement, "That the said Writ of Error and the Scire facias are insufficient in Law; and that the aforesaid Judgement given in His Majesty's Court of King's Bench is hereby affirmed; and that the Transcript of the said Writ of Error shall be remitted, that Execution may be taken out according to due Course of Law, the said Writ notwithstanding."
And being it appeared to this House, that the said Writ of Error was brought merely for Vexation: It is further ORDERED and Adjudged, "That the said John Woodman, the Plaintiff, shall pay unto the said Ferdinand Bye Defendant, the Sum of Twenty Pounds for Costs, within Ten Days next after the Serving of this Order upon him."
Vanlor versus Bushell, in Error.
Whereas Edward Bushell brought an Action of Ejectment, in the Court of King's Bench at Westm. against Dame Katherine Vanlor Widow, for Two Water Corn Mills, and Five Acres of Land, lying in Hertford, in the County of Hertford, and, in Prosecution of the said Ejectment, had Judgement given for him, in St. Hillary Term, Anno Domini 1655: Thereupon the said Dame Katherine Vanlor brought her Writ of Error before the Lords in Parliament; and, according to Rule, assigned Errors, and said, "Die Veneris, Vicesimo Die Decembris, Anno Regni Domini Caroli Secundi Regis Angl. Tertio Decimo, coram Dominis Spiritualibus et Temporalibus in præsenti Parliamento assemblat. apud Westm. venit prædicta Katherina Domina Vanlor Vidua in propriâ Personâsuâ; et dicit, Quod in Recordo et Process. prædict. ac etiam in Redditione Judicii prædict. manifestè est Errat. in hoc, videlicet, eo quod Judicium prædict. reddit. fuit pro præfato Edw'ro Bushell versus ipsam Katherinam, ubi per Legem Terræ hujus Regni Angl. Judic. illud reddi debuisset pro eâdem Katherina versus præfat. Edwardum; ideo in eo manifestè est Errat. Et eadem Katherina ulterius dicit, quod in prædicto Brevi de Executione Judicii prædict. manifestè est Errat. in hoc, videlicet, eo quod ibidem Brevede Executione non warrantizatur per Judicium prædictum in Recordo prædict. superius mentionat. Ideo in eo similiter manifeste est Errat. Et prædict. Edwardus Bushell in propriÀ Personâ suâ venit, & dicit, Quod nec in Recordo et Process. prædict. nec in Redditione Judicii prædict. in ullo est Errat. et petit ibidem Edward. quod Domini Spirituales et Temporales hic procedant ad Examinationem Record. et Process. prædict. quam Materiarum prædict. superius pro Errore assign. &c."
The Lords in Parliament hearing this Day Counsel argue the same on both Sides at this Bar, and after Examination of the Record and Process: It is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That both Parties, with their Counsel, shall speedily attend the Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench, Justice Twisden, and Justice Windham, with the Transcript of the said Record; and, after they have stated the Business, the said Judges are to deliver their Opinions therein to this House; and then their Lordships will give further Determination herein.
