Hon John William, 7th Earl of Sandwich. This was an Action of Replevin which afterwards turned into a Special Case by consent of both parties in the Queen's Bench. It originated in a dispute between Lord Sandwich and the Earl of Craven over the amount to be deducted for Land Tax from the Fee Farm Rents payable from the Manor of Sutton Courtney, co. Berkshire. Investigations revealed that Lord Craven had long been paying the Fee Farm Rents for property he no longer owned. Lord Sandwich then sought the rent from the current owner of the property, Miss Pricilla Adnam, and the Action of Replevin ensued.
