Times 11/03/1846: Ann Catherine Storer was still in litigation in Armstong vs Storer. The suit, with two others, was instituted by unsatisfied creditors of Anthony Gilbert Storer, of Jamaica. Joseph Stone Williams had been receiver; he petitioned in 1831 to be relieved; he was due a balance of £3654 2s sterling. 'Grant', Joseph Stone Williams's executor, petitioned to be paid from the slave compensation money. Evelyn Bazalgette, a plaintiff in one of the suits, entered into an arrangement on 11/08/1845 with Grant to purchase the debt found due to Williams. Ann Catherine Storer was protesting this deal.
