Abstract

The Office, at the promotion of Fisher and Ashwell, alleged that Wilmot and Ordoyno had unlawfully made alterations and repairs to Coddington church. Specifically, the allegation related to their taking down the pulpit, reading desk and clerk’s pew in the church and erecting a new pulpit, reading desk and clerk’s pew in the place of two ancient stalls. The defendants were accused of doing this without a faculty. It was alleged that in doing so they had obstructed the voice of the Minister from being heard by many of the parishioners (whose seats were now behind the pulpit), had deprived Ashwell and others of the opportunity of sittings in the church, and had disfigured the beauty of the church.
