TitleDraft Case for the Opinion of Mr Skinner
DescriptionReciting R32/4/1 and later transactions, including a Bargain and Sale and Common Recoveries of 1764 which bar the estates tail in the lands in R32/4/1 and allow Coulson Fellowes and his eldest son, William to make new appointments concerning the same; William Fellowes's Marriage Settlement of 1765 (R40/1/3-4) and the Appointment of the same date by Coulson Fellowes and William Fellowes of the Devon and Somerset estates to the use of Coulson in consideration of the Settlement of the more valuable Hunts and Cambs estates upon William and the heirs male of his marriage; the Will and Codicils of Coulson Fellowes (R35/7) whereby his Devon and Somerset lands and his personal estate are devised to his younger son, Henry Arthur Fellowes; William is prepared to confirm the Will in order to save his brother the expenses of a lawsuit. Now Skinner's opinion is sought by William as to whether he has effectally barred himself of all his claims under his father's Marriage Settlement (R32/4/1) and whether his father by his will has absolutely and effectually devised his real and personal estate to his younger son: there is also the question of who is entitled to Mrs Urania Fellowes's jewels.
