Rev. James Rogers became guardian of his wife's neice, Frances Charlotte Newman during her minority.
James Rogers was defendant in Chancery Court Proceedings C 12/184/20 (also sent to me by Susan Moore) which seems to have been brought against him by Francis Newman (the younger) and his (Francis's) creditors in Nov 1791, after promising to pay £6,922 for Francis's inheritances expectant on the death of his uncle (Francis Newman the elder) including the "the perpetual advowson rectory and right of presentation parish church of South Cadbury, and also the .... several manors and estates called North Cadbury and Sparkford". The case concluded in 1792, when it seems James refused to proceed with the purchase because of fraudulent misrepresentation by Francis Newman relating to concealment of encumbrances on the properties. Perhaps Francis's complaint may have been lodged in response to a complaint brought against him by James Rogers in January 1791 (see Chancery Proceedings C 12/178/26)
