This was the claim alluded to by Edward Lambert of Bath in T71/1610, dated 25/09/1834 and 20/10/1834, 'I am mortgagee for £7000, it has been in the family, whose representative I am on this reason, for nearly a century the annuity was at one time regularly paid, but for several years past not a shilling has been received so that I should think the arrears of interest may nearly amount to as much as the principal.' Lambert was a barrister in Bath, and trustee of the will of Mary Ann Norris [the daughter of William Norris, q.v.] proved 30/08/1834, PROB 11/1835/297.
