Sir John Lyall c. Sir Thomas Kyrkeham
London Metropolitan Archives, MS DL/C/A/001/MS09065104v-105r, 107r-108r, 109rv
, Witness for Plaintiff
Testifies that he was present when Sir Thomas Kyrkeham agreed to resign his vicarage to Thomas Cape`s kinsman (Sir John Lyall) on the condition that he receive an annual pension from the bishop of London and that Cape lend Kyrkeham 6s. 8d. so he could buy some clothes. Cape, he says, agreed to these terms, Kyrkeham promised to pay back the loan, and the parties agreed that Cape would pay in total £40 for the funding of an annual pension to be paid by the new incumbent in the vicarage. Testifies that there was a document affixed to the parish church, but he does not know what the document said, nor when it was put up. Testifies that due to the “words and deeds” of Sir John Lyall the details of this affair are common knowledge in the town of Tottenham and in neighbouring places.
