Pitt & al. versus Pelham & al.

Upon hearing of Counsel at the Bar of this House, upon the Petition of Robert Pitt, of Blandford Forum, in the County of Dorsett, Gentleman; William Major, of London, Mercer; Jonadab Savage, of Blockworth, in the said County of Dorset, Gentleman; Roger Higham, of Shapwick, in the said County of Dorsett, Gentleman; and Richard Harris, of the City of Winchester, Esquire; being an Appeal from a Dismission of their Bill in Chancery on the Fourth Day of July last past, concerning certain Lands in Blandford, of William Sherley, late of Shapwick, in the said County of Dorsett, Clerk, deceased; as also upon the Answer of Robert Pelham Esquire and Mary his Wife, and John Still Esquire and Mabell his Wife, to the said Petition:

After due Consideration, upon the Debate had by this House, of what was offered on either Part thereupon;

The Question being put, "Whether the Petitioners ought to be relieved upon their Petition?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Judgement reversed.

The Question being put, "Whether the Lord Keeper be directed, from this House, to lay aside the Dismission of the Bill in Chancery; and to order in Chancery, that the Heir at Law of Sherley the Testator be ordered by that Court to sell the Land, and distribute the Money according to the Direction of the Will?"

It was Resolved in the Affirmative.

Protest against it.

Memorandum, That, before the putting of the abovesaid Questions, I desired Leave to enter my Dissent and Protestation, if the Questions were carried in the Affirmative; which being granted, I do accordingly enter my Dissent, and Protestation, as followeth:

That the Will, as to the Appointment of the Sale of the Lands in Question, being void in Law, there is no Equity to compel the Heir to sell the Lands in Question to his own Disherison; and if it should be otherwise, it would be of a dangerous Consequence; for then the Lord Keeper might, by the same Reason, make good all void Wills and other Assurances.

"Ashley."

Adjourn.
