John Soper, formerly of Banwell insolvant farmer & grazier. Opposed at Debtors Court, Guildhall, Bristol, Glos, Eng 21 Jul 1840 (adjourned from 14 Jul) by Rev R P Jones, rector of Charfield on behalf of his sister who rented him a farm for £150 pa. In 27 Feb 1838 he owed £90 & half year rent almost due, he auctioned his stock, (part repaying parents & Mr Bruce), quit the farm & went to America, he travelled & settled in Oct as clerk at Locomotive Engine Company, St Philips & lived in Cornwallis Place, Baptist Mills, Bristol. The rev obtained legal possesion, but Soper summoned witnesses before assize judges, who dismissed petition & charged Soper costs. Soper once apprenticed to Mr Bruce of Bristol who loaned £642 to establish a business. His father advanced £150 in 1819 & various sums at other times. John took silver cup & 11 spoons worth £50, but unaccounted for. After coming into money, he repaid £165 to his mother, £70 to Brages Fry, his attorney & nephew & £100 to Mr Bruce (£200 owed). Defence admitted he'd given fraudulant preference to his elderly parents for repayments.
