Lambert Tyldesley 1563


In 1684, Sir Thomas Robinson published A book of special entries of declarations, pleadings, issues, verdicts, judgments and judicial process in such actions as are now in use and have not hitherto been published in any printed book of precedents together with such notes and observations as do either illustrate or explain the same : as also such parts of pleadings and judicial process which do naturally fall under the division of each distinct title as necessary and incident thereunto.

Mostly written in Latin, on page 335 the book included an English version of part of an indenture made between Sir Robert Worsley and Lambert Tyldesley of Garrett Hall in 1563:
