, Response of Defendant
Responds regarding disputed tithe collection on lands lying in Hornsey Park which the defendant holds from the bishop of London. States that it is commonly said that two thirds of its territory are situated within the parish of Harringay and a third within the parish of Finchley, and that tithe payments correspond in ratio to the distribution of property within either parish, two-thirds to Harringay, one-third to Finchley. Last year, when the rector of Finchley requested he pay the full tithe from Hornsey Park, he denied owing any money and claimed to have already paid his tithe-collector the third that he owes for the parish of Finchley.
