A Family Argument?

Thomas seems to be unhappy about his sister Dorothy's marriage settlement.

"14 May 1749 White Sunday My Sister Dorothy Tye was married to Mr Joseph Bright Surgeon both of East Retford. John Bright Attorney brother of the said Joseph Bright and Thomas Tye Brother of the said Dorothy Tye was in trust for her in her marriage settlement. John Bright signed the marriage settlements. I, Thos Tye did not signe her marriage settlement or any other writing whatever concerning the same either before her marriage or after as witness my hand the 10 day of September 1764 Thos Tye.

I wrote this that my wife and everyone might know it."

(White sunday is what we now call Whit Sunday)
