Another Scandalous Case is before the English Courts, Sir C. H. Rumbold, nephew of Lord Rancliffe, deceased, has brought an action against Mr.Forteath and Mrs. Forteath, of Bunny Hall, Notts, to recover a property of £7,000 a year, bequeathed to her by his lordship. The circumstances are curious enough. The wife of Lord Rancliffe was a proud lady of rank, who ran off with one of his servants. He then formed an intimacy with a Mrs. Burtt, and left her this property at his death. Mrs. Burtt, becoming wealthy, married Mr. Forteath, and they are living in style on her til-gotten fortune. The will, it is alleged, was fraudulently obtained.
