Witness for Defendant in
John (or Thomas) Wellis
Challenges suitability of previous witness, Agnes Weston, claiming she is of unreliable condition and reputed to be a drunk. Testifies that on 13 February 1487 he heard Alice Billingham ask John/Thomas Wellis to take her as his wife, and that Wellis had refused, stating he would not marry without parental consent, since they needed financial support to establish a household.
