May 9, 1744

1744 May 9 (Wednesday).  Heard that Ezekiel Cole’s Case was try’d yesterday at our County Court at Worcester, and that he was fin’d etc.  And inform’d likewise that to Day Reverend Mr. Welds against Rachel Wheeler of Grafton, comes on.  Mr. Weld recover’d of Wheeler £400 old Tenor for Defamation — but both he and Wheeler appeal’d from the Judgement.
