Elizabeth Park owned some bonds from the sale of her late brother's lands. She later conveyed these bonds to her cousin, Robert Park. Robert Park had a sister, Margaret, but disliked Margaret's husband. Shortly before his death, Robert Park conveyed the aforementioned bonds to his cousin, William Glen. Because Robert Park died less than a month after this disposition, Margaret Park challenged it upon the head of deathbed. Glen argued before Lord Braxfield that the subjects in question constituted a personal right and could not be challenged on the head of deathbed. The pursuer, Margaret Park, argued that as their price was made a burden upon land, they could not be alienated upon deathbed. Lord Braxfield found that one of the bonds in question, granted by Adam Walker for the lands of Wooden, constituted a heritable right. He refused further representation from Glen, who then petitioned the Court for review.
