Richard Tymond c. Margery Sheppard
London Metropolitan Archives, MS DL/C/A/001/MS0906518r-20r
, Response of Third Party
Testifies that he abducted Margery Sheppard, then in sequestration at Richard Spencer`s house during Richard Tymond`s suit. She had told him that she loved him more than she did Tymond, and he brought her to Winchelsea because it was outside of the bishop of London`s diocese.
, Response of Defendant
Responds that while sequestered in late June 1487, she spoke to Robert Scimon, who, after she said that she wanted to see her father, told her he would bring her near her father`s house in Gracechurch Street. Responds that John Sem then met them at Scimon`s house. Admits that she agreed to leave sequestration with Robert Scimon and John Sem to go to Winchelsea.
