Viewing Event Record: no short title


John Witter argues that a proviso such as Heminges describes, which deprives a widow of her rights to her husband's estate in the event she should remarry, does not abide by civil or ecclesiastical law. Even if the clause were legal, he claims, it would not apply under these circumstances, as Anne Phillips had transferred the property to Witter before Heminges seized possession of it.
