Joseph Langton presented for evil usage of a little child of his wife, Lt. Samuell Apleton and John Whipple being feoffees in trust, and bound to prosecute him. The child was ordered to continue to live with his grandfather, William Varney, and his grandmother, until next Ipswich court.
Note: Deposition dated 26 June 1652, Joseph Langton whipped the child to make it quiet, and upon deponent's asking why he used such a sticky rod, the small branches being worn off, said Langton whipped the child again. The child had to lie upon straw having but a piece of sailcloth or some such material in the cradle, and deponent saw water running down into the room where the child lodged. He could not remember if it had a pillow for its head.
A good definition of "feoffee in trust" is needed. Feoffee generally seems to mean "in trust".
