1695 Va Isle of Wight will of Lear w Charles Goreinge as a beneficiary
1695 Nov 21: Council Chamber Whitehall. 26 October 1743. Committee report on the appeal of David Meade of Virginia, merchant, setting out that letters patent were granted in Virginia 10 July 1688 to Colonel John Lear since deceased, for a tract of land in the counties of Nansemond and Isle of Wight containing 900 acres which the same Colonel built on and improved and is the estate in question. He was seized thereof in fee simple and had issue one son Thomas Lear who died in his father’s lifetime leaving issue one son John Lear and two daughters Elizabeth and Martha. The aforesaid Colonel Lear made a Will 21 November 1695 and gave his granddaughter Elizabeth another distinct tract of land, to her and the heirs of her body with remainder to John George and his heirs, with remainder to the testator’s grandson the aforesaid John Lear and the heirs of his body for_ ever. And he gave another parcel of land to Charles Goring in fee and after several legacies he bequeathed to his aforesaid grandson John Lear (who was his heir-at-law) all other his lands tenements and heraditaments, with bases for term of years and appointed Executors, but he did not limit any remainder over of the said patented lands but such reversion descended upon his aforesaid grandson to whom an estate tail had been devised in the same lands. Some time after making his will the said Colonel Lear died seized in fee of the same patented lands and John Lear his aforesaid grandson entered therein. That by indenture of lease for a year of 29 June 1743 he, for consideration of 5/- sold the tract of land described in the said patent to his late grandfather with other premises, to the petitioner for one year for a peppercorn rent for certain reasons. By indenture of release of 1 July 1734 in consideration of £80 did give bargain sell alien release and confirmed to the petitioner the said tract of land to hold with appurtenances to the petitioner and his heirs for evero The lease and release and receipts for consideration moneys were at the 1st Court held 24 July 1734, proved by all three witnesses. The $aid John Lear the grandson died later without any issue •. On 15 October 1740 one William Thrustout filed a declaration in ejectment in Virginia against the petitioner for one messuage, one tenement and 900 acres of land in the parish of Newport county of Isle of Wight, Virginia, as the said William Thrustout was the feigned lessee under Martha Godwin and others The petitioner pleaded not guilty and issue was joined and the action was successively continued by the Court until 15 April 1741, 15 October 1741 and 15 April 1742. The last was considered by the judgment of the Court to be with the plaintiff and therefore, he, the said William Thrustout should recover against the petitioner with 1/- damages and his costs. The plaintiff prayed a writ of possession which was granted. The petitioner was greatly aggrieved by the judgment and brought his appeal to His Majesty in Council and prays that the said judgment given in Virginia 15 April 1742 be reversed. The Lords of the Committee heard the appellant by his Counsel and thereupon agreed that the said judgment be reversed and he be restored possession and that judgment be entered up to the appellant with costs.
