Plaintiff demanded a messuage and 7 acres in Bridgewater, of which her husband was seized "during the Coverture and whereof she hath nothing (as She Saith) and the said Martha Leonard Complains that the said Jonathan Chandler hath Deforced her thereof and then and there to Shew Cause why to the said Martha Leonard her reasonable Dower as aforesaid he doth not render etc." Defendant pleaded in abatement that (1) the writ identified Joseph Leonard as "Yeoman", when he never had "the Estate to make him so", that (2) the writ did not list plaintiff's "Addition... Neither of Town or County, which is absolutely Necessary and without which She cannot be rightly known", and that (3) the writ listed defendant Jonathan Chandler as a "Yeoman, which is Wrong, for he is a Bloomer." The defendant was overruled and then pleaded that he did set off her dower to her. The Jury verdict was for the plaintiff and included her dower, 10s in damages, and costs, taxed at £2.11s.5d. The defendant appealed, with Daniel Johnson Esq. of Bridgewater and James Hovey of Plymouth as sureties. No further record.6
