Proceedings upon the petition of Honour Dempsy, widow of Colonel James Dempsy. Shows that the said James Dempsy, in consideration of the marriage and marriage portion had with her in the year 1665, did then article with Thomas Browne, the petitioner's father, to purchase and settle lands of inheritance to the value of 500l. a year, whereof 200l. should be for the petitioner's jointure, and the residue should be to the use of the said Colonel for life, with remainder in tail to the issue male of that marriage. In case he did not purchase lands to that value, he was, by his last will, to make the petitioner sole executrix, or leave her a personal estate to the value of 3,000l. For performance thereof he entered into judgment of 10,000l. to the said Thomas Browne, and soon after purchased a small estate in Ireland to the value of 120l. per annum, and settled the same accordingly, and in 1682 set out 900l. at interest on a mortgage from the late Lord Barry of Santry on some lands in Little Kilcairns and Scon, co. Meath, and the deeds and security for the same were taken and made in the name of the said Thomas Browne, and of Patrick Alton and Michael Chamberlain, the petitioner's near relations, in trust for the petitioner and her children, if it should be so declared, before the 25th of December, 1685, by deed in writing, and for want of such declaration to be in trust for the said James Dempsy. But the said declaration being omitted, by neglect of the petitioner's said relations, the said mortgage, in strictness of law, is become forfeited to his Majesty by the outlawry for high treason lately had against the said James Dempsy, after death, contrary to law and justice and to the ruin of your petitioner and her innocent children. The petitioner goes on to say that James Dempsy died in June or July, 1690, and that he was indicted for high treason in November following, in one or more counties in Ireland, on account of the late rebellion, and thereupon outlawed, and not before, and that his Majesty had no benefit thereby nor the said James Dempsy any estate to forfeit except the said mortgage; she therefore prays that a writ of error may be brought by Thomas Dempsy, her son and heir. Referred for report to the Lords Justices of Ireland. [S.P. Dom. Petition Entry Book 3, p. 105.]
