Once again, I can catch and assume some parts but id like to have a better set of eyes and understanding of the script take a look.

It’s mainly down to practice, Carol. Each to our own. The expert work you do on Photo Restoration is something I could never dream of achieving.

I suppose this must be the same man, in the Court of Common Pleas, Trinity term 1527.

Leics. Alice, Abbess of Pollesworth, versus John Dudley, of Swepson, husbandman, for trespass breach of close at Swepson.

Thank you very much for this, the swepston registers are very hit and miss in the 1500s. Trying to tie this John in with the Richard Dudley, Husbandman who dies 1587, possibly grandfather or father.

Thats could be the same, whatva great find.
Is there a database for those pleas? I'm trying to find as much info as I can on the swepstone Dudley's in 1500s as they are said to descend from the Dudleys who were lords of the manor of Clopton, Northamptonshire in the 1300s/1400s.

There are some indexes here:

Some of these records can also be searched here:
