Humphrey Brigges and his wife Anne v Thomas Moreton. Humphrey Brigges claimed the land in the right of his marriage settlement in 1587 and £600 paid by his father; he enjoyed the lands for 13 years. Walter Lee and Thomas Jobber obtained the deeds by executorship and brought a case in the Court of Wards pursuing the claim of Thomas Moreton. His title was based on a sexpartite lease of 1568 in which Richard Moreton, grandfather of Anne and Thomas agreed that the land in question should be to his use in his lifetime, then to his son Robert (father of Anne) and his heirs male and then to Richard jun. (father of Thomas) and his heirs male. Further suits were brought in the Star Chamber by Humphrey Brigges alleging fraudulent endorsements of the sexpartite lease, particularly by Thomas Jobber. The land in dispute is Chorlewood and Kemberton coppice.
