William Steeper of St Andrew Holborn, co. Middlesex, tailor v Thomas Scott of Marlow, co. Buckingham, gent

November 1637


The origin and result of this cause remains uncertain, as only a badly damaged libel survives; but the case was probably a counter suit to the case Scott brought against Steeper in February 1637. [See cause 584].
