OXFORD UNIVERSITY AND CITY HERALD - SATURDAY 13 MARCH 1819

 Doc on the several Demises of Hooper and Others v. Orpwood.

- This was an Action of Ejectment, brought by the Lessors of the Plaintiff to recover Possession of 14 Leasehold Tenements, situate in the parish of St. Thomas's, in the city of Oxford; under the following circumstances: - Michael Tarrant, late of the city of Oxford, victualler, by his will, dated the 12th Feb. 1762, gave (after devising a few small legacies,) all his 5 Tenements, situated as aforesaid, unto his wife Esther, for her life, and after her decease or intermarriage, which should first happen, then to his daughter Mary (the mother of the lessors of the plaintiff,) for her life, and after the decease of his said wife Esther, and daughter Mary and the survivor of them, then the testator devised the said 5 Tenements unto and amongst all and every the children of his said daughter Mary, lawfully to be begotten by her then present or any future husband, share and share alike; and appointed his said wife Esther sole executrix of his will, who, however, died in the life time of the testator [i.e. Esther died between 1762 and 1766] ; upon the testator's death the mother of the lessors of the plaintiff [i.e. Mary] proved the will of the father, and to whom letters of administration were granted; one [Mary] afterwards took possession of the property, and remained in receipt of the rents and profits thereof for many years; she married three husbands, and in the life time of her second, mortgaged these premises to a person of the name of Earl for 30L [pounds]. Having occasion for a larger sum of money, and presuming the property ample security for 70L, that sum was advanced to her by the defendant [name not given but presumably Orpwood] while under coverture with Hooper, (her third and last husband), [Mary's third husband] part of which sum was applied to the discharge of the mortgage, and the remainder entirely at the disposal of the mother of the lessors of the plaintiff [i.e.Mary]; and certainly none of the 70L was ever applied to the discharge of the debts of Michael Tarrant, which in the character of executrix (and not legatee) would have been assets in her hands to be applied for that purpose. On the 17th March, 1799, the mother of the lessors of the plaintiff [i.e. Mary] died, leaving the property still in the hands of the defendant [Orpwood], who, shortly after her death, erected nine tenements in addition to the five, and mortgaged them to Mr. M. Morrell for a sum nearly equal to the value of the premises. The lessors of the plaintiff [i.e. Mary's children] being persons of extreme indigence, (two in the poor-house) could not till this moment make claim to their property, although nearly  20 years had elapsed since the death of their mother, and upon whose death they were immediately entitled; repeated declarations of assent by the mother, the lessors of the plaintiff, that her children were to take the property after her death, were proved by the father of the lessors of the plaintiff [i.e. Mary's husband], which closed the plaintiff's case.

For the defendant it was insisted by Mr. Jarvis, that the mother of the lessors of the plaintiff [Mary] having taken out letters of administration to the personal property of her deceased father, she had the bona-fide sale in herself in such character. To prove this, three deeds were put in; the last of which was a deed of assignment (which recited the will of Michael Tarrant) from John Hooper and Mary his wife to the defendant, whereby they assigned to the defendant all their interest in said premises for remainder of said term of 500 years in consideration of the sum of 70L. This deed was dated Jan 28, 1793, and therefore a lapse of 17 years had intervened since the death of the testator and the time of making the assignment to the defendant [doesn't add up, the testator Michael died in 1766 so it was a lapse of 26 years]. This deed, it was contended, was good and decisive, although contrary to a solemn deed.

Mr. Justice Richardson thought otherwise, why (said he) does the law require an assent to personal property from the Executor, but that the Legatee may know that he has no Debts to pay, this I conceive to be the meaning of an assent, and the only question here is whether the Administratix assented, and it is proved the [she] said over and over again that her Children were to take after her death.
Mr. Jarvis then called John Hooper, the Father of the lessors of the plaintiff, and closely cross-examined him as to the 70L paid by the defendant as a consideration for the assignment being applied towards the payment of the debts of Michael Tarrant, but he decidedly negatived the question.

The Jury under the direction of the learned Judge, found a verdict for the plaintiff, costs 40s [shillings]. [Presumably a child of Mary, name not given.]
