This chapter presents the deponents in the lawsuit against Oxford. Oxford participated in Accession Day tilts from 1578 to 1580. Indications of his expenditures on the tilts come from a formal complaint made on 21 May 1598 by Judith Ruswell, widow of William Ruswell (or Russell), tailor, seeking to recover monies never repaid by Oxford. Denying the claim, Oxford conceded that about 1580 he provided Ruswell with a stock of cloth worth £700 or £800. The lawsuit reveals the identities of thirteen deponents who confessed to having known Judith and William Ruswell, and Oxford, the defendant.
