Humbly Complaining, Shew unto yo(u)r Lordship yo(u)r Orators [i.e., the plaintiffs] John Green and Laidman Green, both of Woodhorn in the County of Northumberland, Gentlemen, That yo(u)r Orat(o)rs Grandfather, Christopher Laidman, late of Woodhorn aforesaid, Clerk, Did, on or about the twenty first day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred & eighteen, make his last Will & Testament in writeing, and haveing thereby bequeathed some Legacyes, he gave all the rest & residue of his Personall Estate to his wife Catherine, and of his said Will did constitute & appoint his Said wife Sole Executrix,

And yo(u)r Orators further Shew that soon after the makeing ["of" omitted] the said Will, and in the lifetime of the said Christopher Laidman, the said Catherine departed this life,

And yo(u)r Orators further Shew unto yo(u)r Lords(hi)pp that, on or about the eleaventh day of March one thousand Seven hundred and twenty three [= 1724], the said Christopher Laidman also dyed, leaving a very great Personal Estate, Consisting in ready money, Plate, Jewells, Household goods of all Sorts, Horses, Oxen, Cows, Sheep, Swine, and other living Cattle [= livestock], Corn in the Stacks, Barns and Granarys, severall Rucks [= ricks or stacks] and quantitys of Hay, all sorts of Husbandry Geer, Debts due upon Bills, Bonds, Notes, Specialtyes [= a kind of bond], Judgments, Mortgages for years and in Fee, and other Securitys for moneys taken in his own Name, or in the Name or Names of some person or persons in trust for him, Arrears of Rent, Debts due upon Simple Contract, and Severall other goods, chattells and Personal Estate, amounting in the whole to the vallue of two thousand Pounds at the least,

And yo(u)r Orators further Shew that the said Christopher Laidman had Issue one Son and three Daughters, namely, John Laidman & Catherine Laidman, Margery Laidman & Martha Laidman,

That John is now liveing,

That Catherine, yo(u)r Orators Mother, intermarryed with Michael Green, Gent(leman), by whome she had no Issue Save yo(u)r Orators, and dyed before her Father,

That Margery intermarryed with Robert Loadsman, Gent(leman), who also dyed [i.e., Margery died] in her Fathers lifetime and left one only Child, Robert, now living,

That Martha was marryed to George Forster, Gent(leman), and is now liveing,

And yo(u)r Orators further Shew that their Said Grandfather, Christopher Laidman, tho(ugh) he Consented to and much approved of the Marriage between yo(u)r Orators Said Father and Mother, only gave her a Portion of one hundred and five pounds, tho(ugh) he gave [altered] three hundred pounds a peice [sic] to each of his other Daughters,

And yo(u)r Orators further Shew unto yo(u)r Lords(hi)pp, That the said John Laidman, some short time after the Death of the said Christopher Laidman, had letters of Administrac(i)on of all the goods and chattells, rights and creditts of the said Christopher Laidman, granted to him by the Proper Ordinary [i.e., by the ecclesiastical officer with immediate jurisdiction], but afterwards finding the said Will [i.e., the grant was made in the belief that Christopher had died intestate], by which not only a Legacy of one hundred pounds was given to him, the said John Laidman, but also all his said Fathers Books and Manuscripts, he, the said John Laidman, then made application to the Same Ordinary who had granted Administrac(i)on to him, that the same might be revoked,

And that Administrac(i)on de Novo [Latin: "from the beginning"], with the said Will annexed, might be granted to him, which was accordingly done,

And yo(u)r Orators further Shew, that the said John Laidman, by vertue of the said Administrac(i)on, hath gott into his possession all the Bills, Bonds, Mortgages, and other Securitys for money due to the said Christopher Laidman & hath possessed himself of all other his personall Estate, and hath since enjoyed the same, and hath Sold and disposed of great Part thereof, and hath not to this day exhibitted any Inventory thereof into the Spiritual Court, which he ought to have done, or if he hath, the same is imperfect and full of great omissions,

And yo(u)r Orators further shew unto yo(u)r L(or)ds(hi)pp, that they have frequently & in a friendly manner applyed to the said John Laidman to make a full discovery of all the personall Estate of the said Christopher Laidman, & have requested him that the same, after the Payment of the Said Christopher Laidmans Debts, Legacyes and Funerall Expences, might be distributed according to Law,

And the better to Colour these his unjust Practices, the said John Laidman? does now p(re)tend and give out in Speeches that he had found out and discovered Severall Debts due from the Said Christopher Laidman upon Bills, Bonds, Judgments and other Securityes which would amount unto a much greater Sum(m)e than the Effects of the said Christopher Laidman would satisfye [altered] and Pay,

In Tender Consideration whereof, and forasmuch as yo(u)r Orators Wittnesses, who could prove the truth of all and Singular the Premisses aforesaid, are either Dead or gone into places beyond Seas, far distant from and unknown to yo(u)r Orators, who cannot expect [altered] to have the benefitt of their Testimonyes,

And forasmuch as your Orators have no relief in the Premisses?, save only by the favourable Aid and Assistance of this Hon(ou)r(a)ble Court,

To the end therefore that the said John Laidman, Robert Loadsman the Elder, Robert Loadsman the Younger, George Forster and Martha his wife, and other the Confiderates, when discovered, may true and perfect Answ(e)r make to all & singular the Premisses aforesaid upon their respect...ve? corporall Oaths, as fully & particularly as if the same were repeated and interrogated in the prayer of this Bill,

May itt please yo(u)r Lords(hi)pp to grant unto yo(u)r Orators, his Ma(jes)tyes most gracious Writt, or Writts, of Subpena under the Seal of this Honourable Court, directed to the Said John Laidman, Robert Loadsman the Elder, Robert Loadsman the Younger, George Forster and Martha his wife, and other the Confiderates, when discovered, thereby requiring them, & every [= each one] of them, at a certain day and under a certain Pain, therein to be limitted, personally to be and ap...? before yo(u)r L(or)ds(hi)pp in this Hon(ou)r(a)ble Court,

And then & there true and perfect answ(e)r make to all & Singular the Premisses, and further to Stand [altered] to and abide Such Order and Decree in the Premisses as yo(u)r Lords(hi)pp shall think fitt & reasonable,

And yo(u)r Orators shall ever pray &c,

[below right: "Tho(mas) Clennell" who would be the clerk who wrote out the Bill of Complaint]

Bills of Complaint were usually not dated, but their approximate dates can be ascertained from when the Chancellors to whom they were addressed were in office, and sometimes from the dates when they were received by the court and when Writs were issued to follow up the cases.
Peter King, the 1st Lord King, was Chancellor from 1 June 1725 until 29 November 1733, and the date "14 May 1728" should be when the Bill was received by the court, so it can be dated to between 1 June 1725 and 14 May 1728.

George the Second by the Grace of God of Great Britain France and Ireland King Defender of the Faith and soforth [sic, one word] To George Brown Thomas Willson & [illegible name] Thomas Heslop Samuel Lunn & Edward Norton Gents Greeting Whereas Richard Ullithorne Complainant hath lately exhibited his Bill of [?Compte] before us in our Court of Chancery against Henry Laidman Defendant and Whereas We have by our Writt lately commanded the said Defendant to appear before us in our said Chancery at a certain Day now past to answer the said Bill know yee that We have given unto three or Two of you full power and authority to [?take] the answer of the said Deft to the said Bill and therefore We command you any three or two of you that at such certain Day and Place as you shall think fit you go to the said Deft if he cannot conveniently come to you and take his answer to the said Bill on his Corporall Oath upon the Holy Evangelists to be administered by you any three or two of you the said Answer being distinctly and plainly wrote upon Parchment and when you shall have so taken it you are to send the same closed under the Seale of you any three or two of you unto us in our said Chancery without delay wheresoever it shall then be together with this Writt Witness our self at Westminster . the eighth day of May in the thirteenth year of our reign [1740].

This presumably cannot be the Henry Laidman who was buried at Chapel Allerton, according to the parish register of St Peter, Leeds:
Burials at Chapel Allerton Chapel in ye. year 1797
Henry / Laidman / Chapel Town / Sepr. 19
unless his baptism in 1701 is incorrect; but I cannot find a candidate for this burial. Did Henry have a son, also Henry?

Bradford Jan y9 1796

Mr Bell
I haveing read your letter to Mr Rand [John Rand was an executor of Mary Rhodes’ Will] of the 5th inst I feel it is my duty to write a few lines to you upon the subject of it you must recollect that when the Money was placed out no Objection was then made by the Trustees to the security and the parties were in universal good credit this was all that Mr Laidmans will required I am rather surprized thearfore that you should see it reasonable or necessary that my Sisters effects should be withheld from us for the purpose of making up deficiencies my Sisters impatience might have been controuted [? not in Johnson] by the trustees for if the Bond was filled up and executed the Money was in your hand and by parting with it you doubtless acquiesced in the Security and as for the last hundred I can say that my Sister did not know of it you may remember that you and I was in Mr Shaftoos Offices and thear I was askd to give leave for the last hundred for my Sister at that time if you had made the least objections I should not have given leave some time after I inquired ^of Mr Shaftoo^ if the Money was gone and he told me that it was waiting till young Sollman came to sign the Bond I am much concerned to find that your Trusteeship brings such tro^b^le upon you but I hope the affairs will end in a satisfactory manner as you donot say that a deficiency is certain however if it is it will not be thought just as circumstances stand that it should be made good with my Sisters property and I am truly glad that the Trustees are not responsible for any monies my best respects attend you Mrs Bell and the famely
from Sr Yr Obedent Servt Ann Rhodes

P S I know that my Sister wrote to
have the Salmons sued for the Money
but it was declined at the Request of
one or both the Trustees.

The Principal Inhabitants of Cumberland 1829 includes the entry:
LAIDMAN Mrs High House Petteril Crooks
This Mrs Laidman was almost certainly Jane, by now the widow of William [N1506]. In a set of early maps, I found Petterel Crooks (‘e’ instead of ‘i’) about 4 km W of High Hesket and 3.5 km NE of Ivegill on the Petterel River. I have also located, in an on-line Ordinance Survey map, "High House Fm" (presumably "Fm" stands for "Farm") SE of Southwaite and between the railway line and the M6 motorway. This may have been the "High House" abode of N1506 William (mentioned in his will) and that of Mrs Laidman (in the 1829 Principal Inhabitants). It is clearly in the parish of Hesket-in-the-Forest. I have also located a "Hill Houses", about 2.5 km ENE of Thomas Close and 1.5 km NW of Calthwaite. "Hill House" was given as the abode of William [O1992] and Deborah Laidman on the baptism entries for son John and daughter Jane. Also, the baptism of Deborah in 1801 recorded the father, John Graham, as "Farmer", "abode Hillhouses". From its location, "Hill Houses" would be in the southernmost part of the Hesket-in-the-Forest parish.

1841 Census: HO 107/166/7 folio 6 page 5

Note that Jane's daughter Elizabeth, husband Thomas THIRLWALL (as THIRWELL) and family, together with Jane’s illegitimate grandaughter Ann(O1588), were residing at Froddle Crook and were listed two household schedules prior to this one. [HO 107/166/7 folio 5 page 4]
[Note: From age 70 (i.e., 70-74) recorded in the 1841 census return, Jane LAIDMAN (née BROWN) would have been born between 1767 and 1771, allegedly in Cumberland]

Probable death registration for Jane LAIDMAN (née BROWN), wife of N1506 William LAIDMAN:
ENTRY OF DEATH [GRO D1844 Longtown 25 80]
1844 DEATH in the Sub-district of Longtown Low in the County of Cumberland
Eleventh of October 1844 at Millendbrouhead(?) Parish of Kirkandrews Jane Ladiman (sic) Female (Age) 75 Years Widow of William Ladiman (sic) Farmer (Cause of death) Apoplexy (Informant) John Lee Deputy Coroner Brampton (Registered) Fourth of December 1844.
1. LADIMAN is a not uncommon corruption of the spelling of LAIDMAN.
2. The Registration District is Longtown and the town/village of Longtown is only about 10 kilometres (12 miles) NNW of Wetheral, where Jane LAIDMAN (née BROWN) was resident at the time of the 1841 census.
3. In that 1841 census, Jane was recorded as 70 (i.e., age in the range 70 to 74) and this is consistent with age 75 at death in 1844.
4. Jane's daughter O1417 Margaret, who was residing with her at the time of the 1841 census, was elsewhere and not with her mother at the 1851 census, suggesting that Jane died before the 1851 census.
5. Jane's husband was indeed William LAIDMAN (N1506), a farmer, who had died in 1826.
6. A copy of this Jane LADIMAN's will (if it exists) could confirm whether she was Jane LAIDMAN (née BROWN).
