 Affidavit of William Clarvo, of Much Marcle, co. Hereford, Joiner. Deponent's mother, Elizabeth Clarvo, widow, was tenant to a small tenement in Much Marcle, the estate of Foulk Wallwyn, the idiot, for which she attorned tenant to the Earl of Monmouth in June last, and covenanted to pay arrears the 1st August then following. She died 11 August last, and after her burial on the 13th, Deponent delivered possession to the Earl's agent, Mr. Richard Hooper. Thereupon Mrs. Wallwyn and Mrs. Frances Shepheard came to the room where Hooper was, and abused him, and Mr. Shepheard and Mr. Noble threatened him and drove him out, and also assaulted one Mr Robert Aylewey. Mr. John Shepheard's wife and mother, Mrs. Booth, Dorothy Gammon, and Ann Mayo were all in Deponent's house, when Deponent and his sister Mary Turner were forced out ; and Mrs. Wallwyn having taken possession, John Noble produced a paper which they forced Deponent to sign, not knowing its contents, under threat of throwing all his goods out into the street. Deponent asked Mr. Wills, the Vicar, who was present during the outrage, to read it to him, but he refused, advising Deponent to sign it, or he would be undone, and telling him that Shepheard and Noble would save him harmless, as they had promised. Sworn at Hereford 18 Sept. 2 W& M. [1689/90]
