It looks like Mary Brigginshaw was still under 21 in 1731. In that year she was involved with this equity suit ...

... when she was described as an infant (= under age) and was represented by one of her guardians/trustees.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. On seeing it, I can recognise now that those are the three names you pointed out to me on the Latin section I posted..... Does an equity suit mean they have (legally) fallen out and that Bromley and Nanfan are sticking up for Mary and Margaret against Lutley who has a grievance? ...

Thanks

That's probably correct. One of the three trustees, Philip Lutley, has died, and his widow has a grievance against the other two -- both as individuals, and as representatives of Margaret and Mary. You would have to see the case-papers to find out more.

TNA Discovery is one of the most valuable online tools for genealogy.  ;)

There is also this, which maybe you've seen ...

... and other documents relating to Margaret are at Worcestershire Archives.
