T71/915 Hanover claim no. 53. Letter T71/1608 from James Bedlow of Carlow in Ireland 30/10/1835: estate was John Hill's [d. 1828], who left it to his 4 sisters, then residing in Europe [Bedlow married to one]. Edmund Gardiner of Remmanham Lodge, Henley on Thames [Oxfordshire] was an Executor, 'circumstances having rendered it expedient to file a Bill in Equity against that Gentleman to render an account of his Trust', seeks info on claims, ccs and slaves etc. [also No. 78 and No. 79]. NB letter from Edward Gardiner of Remenham Lodge 16/03/1835: as proprietor-in-fee of Flint River [filed under No. 184]: Attorney was Isaac Jackson. Edmund Gardiner had been told that valuations were not made known to the Parties concerned: 'Thus I am left completely in the dark, wholly ignorant of what has been transacting in this matter and I can not but think that I, as a Person having so large an Interest therein, ought not to be kept any longer wholly uninformed upon the subject.'
