The owner of an adjoining site subsequently disputed his title to a particular plot and brought proceedings against him.

An attempt was made to settle the case out of court but it failed and, in court, judgment was given for the plaintiff Miss Grattan Esmonde. She was given possession of the house in August, 1863.
