This chapter presents a case study on courtship among the minor gentry in England focusing on the court cases Troope v. Stenson and Henworth v. Stenson filed between 1652–1664. These cases were filed against Mary Stenson by Jonathan Troope and William Henworth, stating that they were both legally married to Stenson. In December 1664, the court dismissed the case, sentenced Stenson, and confirmed the legality and validity of her marriage to Gilbert Mundy.
