Williamson v. Irish Presbyterian Congregation, 49 U.S. 8 How. 565 565 (1850)

Williamson v. Irish Presbyterian Congregation

49 U.S. (8 How.) 565


The principles established in the preceding case of Williamson v. Berry applied to this case.

The circumstance that the defendants paid to the grantees of George De Grasse a valuable consideration for the premises in dispute does not give them a valid title against the plaintiffs.

This case was similar to the preceding one, in which the same facts and principles were involved. The only difference between them was that the following point was certified in this case, which was not in the preceding, viz.:

8. Whether the defendants, who derive title bona fide, and for a valuable consideration, by purchase through the grantees of George De Grasse, as set forth in the case, have a valid title as against the plaintiffs.

It was argued in conjunction with the preceding case, as has been mentioned in the report of that case.
