Arbitration Award to settle various tangled and vexed questions consequent on the decease of the late Henry Browham  D AY 1/301  27 April 1623

Contents:
Parties: Edward Aglyonbye of the City of Carlisle Esq., for himself and his wife and children, and Katherine the widow of Henry Browham for herself and her son Thomas an infant.
Arbitrators: Lord William Howard, John Lowther (of Lowther) Esq., Anthony Hutton (of Penrith, Master in Chancery for years) Esq.
Preamble states that the Supervisors of the Will of the late Henry Browham have agreed to the terms of this Award. these Supervisors were the said John Lowther, and Thomas Dudlye (Dudley) and Thomas Fallowfeild.
Matters in dispute: First, that the late Henry Browham intended to give £600 as marriage-portion for his granddaughter Mary the daughter of the said Edward Aglionbye and now the wife of "John Sandforthe of Askam" (John Sandford of Askham in Westmorland), "and to set[t]le all his differences" with Mr and Mrs Edward Aglionbye and their children "much to the effect that now the same are set[t]led by this order", but died after the marriage but before he could do so: - it is now agreed by the parties and ordered by the arbitrators that the Browhams shall indeed pay the £600, but as Mary has already entered on some of the lands, £210 shall be deducted from the £600 as value of these lands, and the bonds for this £210 shall be now handed-in and cancelled
And that £312 of the money that Leonard Dykes was or is owing to [the estate of] Henry Browham shall be accepted as part of the portion
And that the residue of the £600 shall be paid out of such debts as the said Edward Aglionbye owes Henry (deceased) or Katherine Browham, and out of the £150 he is now to receive from her
Second, that notwithstanding the claim that Edward Aglionbye makes to the lease of "Plunton" (Plumpton) Tithe, "by some assignment formerly pretended to be made unto his wyfe by the said Henry Browham hir father", and "by some Leas[e]" to himself or his son or sons, even so 'tis agreed and ordered that the lease shall remain with the Trustees (John Lowther, Thomas Dudlye, Thomas and Richard Fallowfeidl) under Henry Browham's "Deed and Last Wyll" in consideration for which the said Edward Aglionbye shall have £150 in money "out of the best Debts and Bonds" due to H.B.'s Executors, and be quit of all his debts and claims upon him to and by H.B. at the time of H.B.' death, "except such Debts as are particularly reckoned to make by the said payment of Sixe hundred poundes"
And the said Katherine Browham, Thomas her son, and the Trustees (Lowther, Dudlye, and the two Fallowfeilds) be likewise quit of all debts and claims by the said Mr and Mrs Edward Aglionbye and their children, excepting any arising in the event of the said Thomas Browham dying without issue; and that they shall continue to enjoy all the lands and leases that they do at present
Third: that whereas H.B. brought "from one Robert Sothake" a freehold house and certain lands at Skelton Scales, and in that purchase made John Aglionbye (son of the Edward party hereto) his joint purchaser; and also bought certain (unnamed) freehold lands of the late Mr Wharton of Kirkby Thore (Westmorland) worth £40 p.a., and made the said Edward Aglionbye and George (Edward's son) purchasers jointly with him, as by the several deeds is plain, and afterwards that H.B. conveyed his part of them to Trustees (John Lowther, Thomas Dudlye, Thomas Fallowfield, John Dudlye, Richard Fallowfeild) to hold for benefit of himself and his son Thomas - it is now agreed and ordered, that John Aglionbye shall have only half the house and lands at Scales; and that Edward Aglionbye and George his son shall similarly have two parts of Mr Wharton's lands
And that the other half ("moiety") of Scales, and the remaining third of Wharton's, shall stay in the possession of Thomas Browham "accordinge to the Lymitation of the said Henrye Browham his father"
Fourth: that whereas the said Henry Browham, before Jane his daughter's marriage to the said Edward Aglionbye, surrendered a house and land called "Staykewraye in Plunton Lordship" to the use of her and her heirs, and she was admitted as copyhold tenant, as is shown on the court rolls of that manor, it is now agreed and ordered that she continue so; and it is ordered that all the deeds of Staykewraye, and all the other deeds of Edward Aglionbye, his wife or children, shall be now delivered to the said Edward Aglionbye (except for those relating to Scales and to Mr Wharton's lands, and the lease of Blackhall, which are to be kept for the said Thomas and Katharine Browham, and true copies of them shall be given to Edward Aglionbye)
Lastly, it is ordered that if the said Thomas Browham die without issue while still a minor, then all his deeds and inheritance shall come to Edward Aglionbye, his wife and children, as intended by the late Henry Browham in his "Lymitation", provided that Edward Aglionbye pays £300 to Katherine Browham within twelve months of this event, if it occurs.
Signed by Katherine Browham and the three arbitrators, each above seal-tag; Katherine makes mark. A fifth seal-tag has no signature above it. Only Lord William Howard's seal survives intact (small, brown wax, indeterminate). A sliver of brown wax is the remnant of Anthony Hutton's seal.

Arbitration award concerning sums payable by co-defendants who lost their lawsuit, and concerning two houses and lands bought but not yet paid-for by some of the co-defendants from each other
Award made by Edward Willson, Isaac Gilpin, John Troughton, and George Ward, who recite in their preamble that they were appointed Commissioners to inquire and examine the co-defendants sued by Thomas Washington and Miles Stephenson before the Council in the North for [sums lent], which case was heard on 29 September 1626, and Decree made, but suspended when the seven co-defendants began quarrelling over who should pay what part of the sum awarded against them, namely £260 principal debt, £61. 3s. 4d. damages, and £4. 15s. 0d. costs, yielding a total stated as £325. 18s. 4d. The Decree was suspended till the Council's next sitting; and the Commissioners, having heard the defendants' case and read their proofs, and found them willing to go to arbitration, have undertaken also to be the arbiters and now make this their Award, which the co-defendants have agreed to observe as binding and final.
The co-defendants were John Pearson, Dorothy his wife (formerly the wife of the late Hugh Barrowe, on whom see further on in this Award), Matthew Phillipson, Michael Sheppard, John Sheppard, Allan Bracken, and Christopher Newbie or Newby.
The Arbiters also considered the vexed matter of who now owned a certain two houses and land which were bought but not yet paid-for. One was in the possession of Agnes Phillipson, widow, and the said Dorothy; the other, of James Newby and William his son. Both were jointly bought by Matthew Phillipson (one of the co-defendants) and the late Hugh Barrowe, amongst other lands: "and the price for the purchase of the same being unsatisfied, variance did grow" between Matthew Phillipson and Dorothy's present husband John Pearson, as to who should enjoy (and pay for) these properties.
Terms of the Award: 1) That the said Matthew shall pay the Plaintiffs (under the Decree) the £200. 6s. 8d. now in his hands, and the said Michael Sheppard shall pay them the £58. 11s. 8d. in his, and both shall release their co-defendants (who have already each paid their respective shares) from any further claim in this;
2) That the two disputed houses and lands belong (in our opinion) in law to Matthew Phillipson as surviving purchaser, and we note that Hugh Barrowe's executrix and heirs want no part in this ("there being likely to be at the Least xxvj. li. losse by the same"): therefore we order the said Matthew to pay the Complainants £56 for full and absolute purchase thereof under the Decree, and release his co-defendants from any further claims for this; "yet in regard of the great losse which wee imagine the said Mathew will sustaine by the purchase" of these, and as the late Hugh Barrowe in his lifetime made "some promise" to buy them, we now order that John Pearson pay Matthew by 11 November next the sum of £10, and that he (John) and Dorothy release him their title to them;
3) Also Ordered, that Matthew shall have only his legal claims of survivorship in the freehold Musthill tenement (in possession of John Pearson), in "another tenement" in possession of Agnes Barrowe, in another house and land in possession of Richard Newby, and in another house and land in possession of Thomas Eskrigge (if not yet released), under the uses stated in the late Hugh Barrowe's will;
4) And that after security or satisfaction is given to the plaintiffs ("Complainantes") for the sums named in the Decree, John Pearson and Dorothy his wife "shall Seale" a general release of all claims on their co-defendants, as shall the other co-defendants in favour of John and Dorothy; except for two claims which shall remain in being, the first is that Matthew stay bound to pay 22s. 0d. "or thereaboutes" to Dorothy; the second is that Michael Sheppard's wife shall still receive "certaine legacies given" to her.
Signed by the four Commissioners/Arbiters above two seals (brown wax, no device, on tags).
