A Chancery Case involving Joseph Adkins of Tring

From the Derby Mercury

 9th February, 1753









On Tuesday last a Cause, which had been depending in the Court of Chancery for seven years, wherein Joseph Adkins, a poor man in Tring Workhouse in Hertfordshire, was Plaintiff, and an Ironmonger of Tring aforesaid, Defendant, was heard before the Lord Chancellor at Westminster-Hall, when a Decree was pronounced in favour of the Plaintiff, with Costs of Suit.



I find this an interesting item as it is hard to see how a man in the Workhouse could afford to take a case to Chancery
