This was the start of long-running and tangled Chancery suits, with Barker pursuing his claim, and with Norton and Bill falling out and fighting each other in court. Bill retained his rights in the office of King’s Printer until his death. Barker was eventually reinstated as King’s Printer in 1629, displacing Norton. At the same time Norton, who rashly accused Lord Keeper Coventry of taking bribes, was slung into jail where he probably remained until his death.2
