At a Superior Court of Chancery held in the town of Fredericksburg, on the 17th day of May 1826 – Thomas Chapman, surviving executor of William Carr, deceased, Appellant,
William H. Tebbs and Lydia his wife, and Charles Ming and Victoria his wife, Appellees.
Upon an appeal from an order of the County Court of Prince William, in Chancery, pronounced on the 5th day of April 1824, in a suit in which the appellant was plaintiff, and the appellees were defendants – this day came the parties by their counsel, and the Court having maturely considered the transcript of the record of the order aforesaid and the arguments of counsel, is of opinion, that the said order which suspends the decree for sale of the 2d day of December, 1823, and permits the appellees, Ming and wife, to answer, is erroneous. Therefore it is decreed and ordered, that the same be reversed and annulled; and that the appellees do pay unto the appellant the costs by him expended in the prosecution of his appeal aforesaid here. And this cause is retained in this Court, to be proceeded in according to the decree of the second day of December, 1823.
Costs prosecuting appeal $36 65.
