COGSWELL VS. COGSWELL
In 1675, he brought suit against his uncle William Cogswell. John sued for an account of the probated estate of his father. William, having been discharged by the court in 1664, did not propose to give an account. The clerk of the court reported that the original account could not be found. The court would not give WIlliam any more time and decided in John's favor for £54 18s. 0d., plus court costs. William appealed, but the higher court upheld the judgment and bound William to the sum of £300 to give a just and full account. William delivered an account to John, who claimed that it was false. Thus, the court rejected the account and the suit against William was entered at Salem in January of 1676. The court brought judgment against William to the sum of £300. William appealed to the court in Boston. This court finally reversed the judgment in September of 1676 and ruled that John owed court costs of £13 4s. John refused to pay these charges; instead delivering himself to the marshal in October of 1676. During that same month, John petitioned the General Court -- pleading sad condition and inability -- and asked for another hearing. The court freed him and granted his request for a hearing. William answered the summons and the whole case was heard again on 29 May 1677. The court ruled in William's favor and ordered John to pay the judgment of £13 4s.
"In the year 1675 William Cogswell was sued by John Cogswell, his nephew, son and heir of John Cogswell, deceased, for an account of the estate of his late father probated. His uncle, William Cogswell, had been discharged by the court in 1664, and did not propose to give an account. On reference to the clerk of the court the original account could not be found, so that said William Cogswell was in a strait. The court would not give further time, and passed judgement of £54 18s. 0d. to the plaintiff, i.e. John3 Cogswell, with costs. William Cogswell appealed to the next court, which confirmed the sentence, and bound the defendant to the sum of £300 to give a just and full account. The account was delivered to John, who claimed that it was false. It was therefore rjected, and suit against William was entered at Salem, Jan., 1676, which brought in judgement of £300 against the defendant; from which, appeal was made to the court in Boston. This court reveresed the judgment, Sept., 1676, and brought costs of court, £13 4s. against John Cogswell. John did not pay these charges, but in Oct. 1676, delevered his person to the marshal; and in the same October petitioned the General Court, pleasing his sad condition and inability, and asked another hearing. The curt ordered him to liberty, and granted him a hearing, to which William was summoned. The whole case was heard over again, May 29, 1677. The conclusion was that the plaintiff had to pay the judgement rendered £13 4s..."
