1799.059: Petition for Relocation of Isle of Wight County Court.

Published: 1799

Full Title: To the honorable the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia : the petition of the citizen freeholders of the county of Isle of Wight ...

Author: Freeholders of Isle of Wight.

Place Issued: Virginia

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 31 cm. x 18 cm. (broadside).


Petitioners ask for relocation of the county court at Smithfield to a more central location. Sheet lacks printer credit and date; dated at end in manuscript "Dec. 9, 1799" by a clerk of the House of Delegates, indicating date of submission, and so of production; given county's proximity to Norfolk, this petition was likely issued there; however, other locales cannot be excluded, hence the indeterminacy here. Only recorded copy held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia.
