      Daniel Feild acknowledged an assignment of land from him to Tobias Butler and the lands to be the just right and

      Daniel Feild was attached to answer Jno, Waugh, Clerk, and Thomas Elsey, executors of the last will of Dr. Edwd Maddocks of a plea of debt. The executors by Alexander Webster their attorney complains that Feild became indebted to the testator in his life tyme in the summe of 900 pounds of tobacco by bill 29 Oct. 1690. Daniel Feild saith that he oweth not the 900 pounds of tobacco. It appeared to this Court by the oath of Tobias Butler that he by order of Maddocks paid the summe and Feild also makeing oath that hee never stood indebted to the plaintiffs any other tobaccoes, it is considered that the plaintiffs take nothing by their bill.
      Tobias Butler being summoned to give his evidence on behalf of the defendant and haveing attended two dayes, it is ordered that Daniel Feild doe pay him 80 pounds of tobacco.

      Patrick Muckleroy of this county who married the relict &c of Humphrey Pope late of this county and by meanes thereof became possessed with Popes estate having for some considerations made over to Daniel Feild, and Tobias Butler both of this county all or most part of his estate, which Feild and Butler have sithence sold (or so much as they have thought fitt thereof) at an outcry Wm Paine of this county, merchant, who married one of the daughters and orphants of Hump: Pope on behalf of himself and as guardian to the rest of the orphants of Hump: Pope moved to this Court that the case of the orphants might be taken into their consideration and an expedient found for securing the payment of the same to the several' orphants at their respective age. Whereupon Feild and Butler on behalf of Muckleroy offered to this Court a list of the several' judgments confessed to them at the outcry and other debts due to them and prayed the Court would make choyce of soe many as would amount to the full value of the orphants parts of their fathergs estate and acouitt Patrick Muckleroy from the same.
      It being thought most reasonable that the estate should be comitted to Wm. Paine in respect of his relation thereto, Paine doth accept the same and haveing had perusal of the judgments and debts made choyce of 70 pounds of tobacco which Feild and Butler assigned to Paine.
      Francis Wright and Simon Robins both of this county, Gent., assume with Wm. Paine for the true payment of the respective portions of the orphans as they severally attaine to their respective ages.
