T71/877: claim by Thomas Sanderson, as owner-in-fee. Counterclaim by Thomas Brown, of New Grove, Mile End, London (vendor of estate - see T71/1294), for a mortgage of £5000 and one year's interest due May 1835.

T71/1609: letter, dated 06/11/1835, from Thomas Brown, 7 New Grove, Mile End, or Trinity house, London, enclosing a letter from Thomas Sanderson and a power of attorney. Asks: now Thomas Brown has those and the mortgage deed (dating from 1816), can it be considered uncontested? The enclosed letter from Thomas Sanderson, Antigua, dated 10/08/1835, states: the Betts counterclaim 'is so simple, that the commissioners may dispose of it in five minutes'. Thomas Sanderson has done everything he promised to do: 'I must again take the liberty of urging upon your liberal consideration the immense loss I have sustained by this measure of Emancipation, which I fear will exceed the amount due upon your mortgage before receiving the Compensation money'.
