Viewing Event Record: Chancery, Miles vs the Burbages: The court throws out Robert Miles' case

Abstract

The Chancery court decides that Robert Miles should proceed at the common law in his suit against James and Cuthbert Burbage, since the Burbages have made over two bonds to Miles, one for £400 and one for £200, and Miles should therefore seek to collect these bonds in the common law courts. [The bonds in question were made by the Burbages to John Brayne and came to Miles through Margaret Brayne.]
