      Bill 28 March 1670, by Judeth Alston of London, widow of Penning Alston, late citizen and grocer of London, v. Joseph Alston, William Cole and Richard Chandler.
      Oratrix's husband left an estate of inheritance in co. Suffolk to the value of L.300 a year, and personalty to the amount of about L.10,000, in which Oratrix is dowable. He left only one child, married since his death to Edmund Harrington Esq., though some evil disposed persons have circulated a report that she was married or at least contracted to one Edward Skinner, a person so disliked by Oratrix's husband, that he determined to invest his personal estate in the names of other persons, to settle as he chose by his last will. ...................
      The said testator's daughter Sarah has since freed herself from the said Skinner by definitive sentence in the Court of Arches of the diocese of Canterbury ...................
