  • From Sue Valliant:

    Perusal of the Court Records turned up a case for Phillip Kingsman aged 20 of Bramshaw in the Consistory Court of London dated 4th May 1705.  These were the Bawdy courts and usually involved divorces, breach of promise or 'criminal conversations'  that is adultery.  The index says Phillip was a Servant to Richard Andrew, lace man of St Brides for 6 years at 4 May 1705. This means Phillip came to London in 1698/9.  After his apprenticeship he might have gone to live with Thomas and Ann or nearby in Covent Garden and the above burial [Covent Garden for Phillip Kingsman dated 19th May 1715] could be him.

    The catalogue for the case says it is Pheasant versus Pheasant and another typed entry to the case mentioned Catherine Thompson, widow for 4 years.  The evidence a few pages before that of Philip Kingsman was from Richard Andrew who said he knew Peter Pheasant who was 'a very pretty young gentleman both as to his person and condition'. It appears that Peter Pheasant had died and his widow had brought the case.

    A transcript of Phillip's evidence is in the documents folder.
