Notes, Additions and Corrections

  • William Hayne, a ‘poore man’ and ‘day labourer’ from Dorset who may or may not have been qualified to depose about a disputed rack of hay, was told by Ralph Harding, a gentleman who regularly employed him, that ‘yf he would not depose . . . [he] woulde put him in the shyre courte’ for a relatively modest debt of 12d. Hayne avoid testifying by stalling for time; when he went to Harding’s house to tell him once again that he did not remember anything about the hay and could not testify, Harding told him to be gone ‘like a knave as he was’, adding that he had already ‘gotten one to serve his turne’ at the Dorchester assizes. No information survives about this alternate witness’s occupational status or employment. - Hillary Taylor, The price of the poor’s words: social relations and the economics of deposing for one’s ‘betters’ in early modern England., Economic History Review (2018) https://doi.org/10.1111/ehr.12773 - STAC 5/T7/32, complainant’s interrogatories.
