After hearing Counsel, as well Yesterday as this Day, upon the Petition and Appeal of James Lord Baron of Kingston in the Kingdom of Ireland; complaining of several Orders, or Decrees, of the Court of Chancery in the said Kingdom, made the Twenty-third of May, the Twenty-seventh of June, and Sixteenth of July, 1720, and all other subsequent Orders, in a Cause wherein the Appellant was Plaintiff, and Brettridge Badham Esquire was Defendant; and praying, "That the same may be reversed or rectified:" As also upon the Answer of the said Brettridge Badham put in to the said Appeal; and due Consideration had of what was offered on either Side in this Cause:

Orders or Decrees reversed, with Directions.

It is Ordered and Adjudged, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That that Part of the said Decree of the Twenty-seventh of June 1720, which relates to the Settlement of the Appellant's Estate, be, and is hereby, reversed; and that such Part of the Appellant's original Bill as seeks to set aside so much of the Articles of the Twenty-first of March 1714, as relates to the said Settlement, be, and is hereby, dismissed, but without Prejudice: And it is hereby further Ordered and Adjudged, That so much of the said Decree of the Twenty-third of May 1720, as relates to the Lease of Kilbeheny, and of the Decree of the Twenty-seventh of June 1720, which confirms the First Decree as to the Lease, be also reversed; and it is referred to the Master, to compute what is due to the Respondent, for the several Demands specified in his Answer, exclusive of the Three Thousand Pounds, and severally to compute Interest for the same, from the Time such Demands were severally due; and on the Appellant's Payment to the Respondent of what shall be so computed due for Principal and Interest, by a Time to be limited by the said Court of Chancery for that Purpose, the Respondent is to surrender and affign the said Lease to the Appellant; but if the Appellant doth not pay the said Principal and Interest by the Day to be appointed, then the Appellant's Bill, as to the said Lease, is to be dismissed: And as to the Judgement and Bond, it is hereby Declared, That the same were fraudulently obtained; and therefore, that so much of the said Decree of the Twenty-third of May 1720, as relates thereunto, be reversed: And it is hereby Ordered, That the said Bond and Judgement be set aside; and that a perpetual Injunction be awarded, to stay all Proceedings thereon: And it is hereby further Ordered, That it be referred to a Master, to compute what is due for Interest, after the Rate of Eight Pounds per Cent. per Annum, for the One Thousand Five Hundred Pounds and Five Hundred Pounds; and that the said Principal Sums of One Thousand Five Hundred Pounds and Five Hundred Pounds, together with the One Thousand Pounds brought into Court, and the Seven Thousand Pounds, be laid out in a Purchase of Lands, and settled to the Uses of the Articles bearing Date the Twentyeighth of January One Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixteen.

And begging Pardon for what he had done:

He was directed to withdraw.

Agreed, That he be again called in, and acquainted by the Lord Chancellor with the Nature of his Offence, and reprimanded for the same.
