The Annesley Case, in which James Annesley claimed to be the legitimate heir of Arthur, third Lord Altham, was tried in Ireland in November, 1743.
The Earl of Anglesey, the defendant in the case, claimed the title of Lord Altham, as brother and heir to t:ie deceased lord. About four months after the death of his father, James Annesley was, through the instrumentality of the Earl of Anglesey, kidnapped, sent to America, and there sold for a common slave.
Some years later he returned to Great Britain, and his case was taken up with such vigour that a verdict was secured in his favour.
