The celebrated claim to these immense estates, which has occupied the attention of the legal profession and the public for so many years past in various parts of the kingdom, was decided in an ejectment case, before Lord Chief Justice TINDAL and a special jury, at Croydon Assizes, on the 26th ultimo, after a trial of two days continuance, by a verdict for the plaintiff, William ANGELL.
Thus has been established the heirship and claim of this once poor man, to the estate of Sussex, Surry and Kent, formerly of William ANGELL, the first purchaser of Crowhurst, in Surrey, of the value of upwards of a million of money. Some lighthouses, part of the property, were lately sold to the Trinity House for about £230,000. The plaintiff some few years past worked as a labourer in husbandry.
