STAC 5/B2/16, Thomas Barwick (deposition). 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
  • A Norfolk gentleman who deposed for the complainant (also a gentleman) claimed that Elizabeth Costens had approached him and voluntarily confessed that she had ‘forsworne herselfe against [the complainant]’, before adding that she had been ‘drawne and persuaded soe to doe by . . . hir mistris’. - STAC 5/B2/16, Edward Barwick (deposition). Costen’s case suggests that there could be a gendered pressure involved in subornation: Costen herself was approached about testifying by her mistress, Mrs Lovell, and her husband was approached by Mr Lovell. However, the evidence does not permit a more thoroughgoing exploration of this issue.

Fullwood v Gaskin

  • ODNB Fulwood [Fullwood], William (d. 1593), by Cathy Shrank Fulwood himself appeared in at least four cases in the court of Star Chamber. In 1574 he was accused of conspiracy against a painter, Raphe Brooke, a case to which Fulwood returned in 1589 when he vindicated himself by publishing A Spectacle for Perjurers, printed by Alde, comprising a perjured deposition of one John Jones, whose earlier perjury had condemned Fulwood and his co-defendant, John Doughtie, in 1574. In 1580 Fulwood was charged with inducing one Henry Franckland to write his will in Fulwood's favour (despite Fulwood's apparent responsibility for Franckland's imprisonment in the Fleet). That year he was also accused of wrongfully acquiring the rents of properties in the London parish of St Sepulchre, where Fulwood dwelt in Long Lane. During the prolonged course of this case (which also involved proceedings in the court of wards, chancery, and Guildhall), Fulwood appeared before the queen's bench charged with the stabbing and attempted murder of the key witness, Thomas Walbutt, a defrocked minister castigated in Robert Crowley's Apologye or defence of those Englishe wryters and prechers which Cerberus the thre headed dog of hell chargeth with false doctryne (1566). Fulwood's hasty temper is also apparent from the fourth case brought before the Star Chamber, where in 1590 he refuted a charge of assault on London pewterer John Gaskyn. Gaskyn had been accused by Fulwood of manufacturing false-bottomed tankards, and of manhandling Fulwood's wife, Anne, daughter of the London brewer John Wood.

Puckle v Lockett

  • In 1579/80, a London draper’s servant called William Lockett offered an account of the coercion that could underwrite paternalism. Lockett said that he had been pressured by his master, Robert Brydges, to depose about a debt which Brydges claimed to have paid. On multiple occasions, Lockett protested that he knew nothing about the debt in question. Brydges then told him: ‘Thow muste remember howe I saved thee oute of Brydewell, where thow shouldest have remayned had I not [helped] thee. Therefore thow muste not denye me’. After this reminder of his figurative debts and a series of beatings, Lockett agreed to depose. Brydges generously told him that he would give him a statement to memorize and the ‘leysure to learne the same’. Prior to his testimony, Brydges gave him ‘a hatt . . . to make him seame like an honest and substantiall person’. Discussing the deposition that was later called into question, Lockett remembered that he had ‘stammer[ed]’ while speaking, presumably due to some combination of nervousness and an inability to remember the exact letter of his script. His case suggests that blunt power could override prospective witnesses’ attempts to act according to their knowledge and conscience: he had, as he remembered, ‘resisted [his master] so nere as he coulde’ in his efforts to avoid testifying. - 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/P50/23, William Lockett (answer).
