Trinity 1596 - Qtr Sessions; Articles of information as to the life and conversation of Robert Sherley of Bradley, Isabel his wife and Elizabeth base daughter of Isabel. Inprimis [complaint of Symon Dickenson] He is well knowne to be a man of Bad Disposition and suspected longe for a Reseptor of his neighbors servauntes and an Incorger of them to purloyne ther Mr. his goodes to bringe to his howse as I can well prove for I have fownd my goodes in his howse brought to his wife and daughter by my servauntes by ther Allurement. Secondly, he is so malicious against me for reproveinge him for these faultes that I muche suspect him to do me other displaysures wch concerne the lyfe and healthe of my selfe and howsehold for having a drawe well for the povition of water nere me. I fynd cast in to the same a cat and other noysom thinges to pyson the water wch I greatly suspect to be his doings or some of his people for that the catt there fownd was his mothers catt wch dayly used the howse of the sayd Robert. Nether is this the first cat I fownd ther, and alwayse when the sayd Robert or his wife is in displaysure with me. Further searcheinge his howse for my goodes I fynd in his howse a fishing nett he having no waters of his wone, wch I greatly suspect he depethe to do me displaysure wth for having some smale waters well stored for my provition. I fynd the most parte of my fishe stolen wch I greatly mistrust to be his doings, beinge a man suspected of suche lyke dealings. These and many suche misdemanyors to longe ot troble your worships with these bad people use. Wherefore I humbly pray in Justice yer aydes that I may lyve in more securitie of my lyfe and goods. And praie I maie have him bounden to the good behaviour. Signed Symon Dickenson
