No official transfer of the indenture was made, but William Wallis in March 1816 went to serve Thomas Little for 9 months, with consent of John Gadgcombe. William Wallis then became "ill and disabled for service", and returned to John Gadgcombe, the latter having no accommodation for him, told him to go to his mother who lived in St. Cleer, promising to settle with her for her son's board and maintenance. A few days later John Gadgcombe visited the mother, promising to remunerate her. He also took William Wallis to a "medical Gentleman for Advice". William Wallis continued living with his mother for about 8 weeks, but during that time did not work for John Gadgcombe. Justices decided that for want of those 8 weeks' service the last legal settlement of William Wallis should be St. Pinnock: order reversed, subject to opinion of King's Bench.
