Viewing Event Record: Chancery, Jane Langley vs Hugh Browker: John Turner responds


In a Chancery suit between Jane Langley and Hugh Browker, scrivener John Turner responds that he was Langley's agent and dealer in a variety of his debts and payments during the period of Hugh Browker's purchase of Paris Garden. He confirms Hannibal Gammon's recollections of Langley's creditors, and also recalls partial cash payments to Thomas Playne, Thomas Geram, George Turfett, Lewis Lewkenor, Thomas Walker, Francis Kemp, and Edward Archer. Turner also deposes that through his dealings with Langley for the acquisition of Paris Garden Browker became 'bound severally' to other of Langley's creditors. Turner remembers that Hannibal Gammon informed Hugh Browker of Francis Langley's agreement with Edward Harvest and the ensuing encumbrance on the Paris Garden lease, and that 'the said Langley was very angry with the said Gammon for so doing.'
