T71/882: claim by Samuel W. Wattley as Receiver appointed by the Court of Chancery. Counterclaim by Thomas Budgen esq of Nutfield, Surrey, Lucretia Budgen, Cornelia Penelope Budgen spinsters of the same place and Danl Byam Matthew of St Kitts, trustee to the above, mortgagees for 500 years, £7000 principal money besides arrears of interest. This is possibly the claim alluded to by Edward Lambert of Bath in T71/1610, dated 25/09/1834 and 20/10/1834, 'I am mortgagee for £7000, it has been in the family, whose representative I am on this reason, for nearly a century the annuity was at one time regularly paid, but for several years past not a shilling has been received so that I should think the arrears of interest may nearly amount to as much as the principal.'
